Make It Monday with Ladybug Crafts Ink!

Yep, two of my design teams coming together!  The ever gorgeous and talented Kerry of Ladybug Crafts Ink (you can give me the fiver later, Kerry!) is sponsoring this week's Make It Monday.  Yay, I get to play with my lovely LCI stamps!  I chose to create a whimsical card with Swing Ruby...

 
 


And the sentiments are from the Fairy Sentiments set - the perfect match!  I used the sweet Stampin Up label punch (got mine from Nic of The Sticky Elf - super customer service!) - I think it makes that sweet sentiment even more sweeter!

This week's winner will have the choice of their own stamp up to the value of £6.50 and there are plenty of gorgeous stamps to choose from!  So get commenting on other entrants' posts that you like - the more you comment, the more chance you have of winning!  And of course there's the other way of winning - getting your creation showcased on Make It Monday next week!
