A totally different challenge at Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

(Please scroll down for my A Spoonful of Sugar DT post)

Hello everyone!  I hope your week has started off well!  It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday and this week it is my challenge!  Well as you know I love my cards but I thought I should challenge myself so this week I chose "anything BUT a card".  It seemed like a good idea at the time (I'm sure there was much encouragement from DT mate Lisa J), but what was I thinking - I've been panicking about it for months!!  And then - if you scroll down to my A Spoonful of Sugar post - we had the same challenge!  Well I am giving myself a BIG pat on the back because I managed to do both!  So here is my creation...


 



I love Slobbing Nikki - that is so totally me at 6.30am on a Saturday morning before I get up and do some crafting before Steve wakes up!  I thought it would be a great pressie for my mum for Mother's Day - a box of handmade choccies!  (No, not made by me - I'm not THAT creative!)  Take a looksee...





YUM!!  I can't guarantee these choccies will last until Mother's Day, but I promise to replace them!  Don't forget to take a look at the other FABULOUS DT makes here and to find out if you were last week's winner!

That's it from me today - come back for next week's challenge when we also have a blog hop to celcebrate a new release!!  There will be prizes again so if you want to get a head's start, show the banner below with pride on your blog!
