Hope your weekend has been a good one. Here, in Canada, it is a long weekend. We have Monday, Victoria Day, off. The weather for this long weekend in May is notoriously icky, but we've been rather fortunate this year, it's just a bit lower than the seasonal average...not much rain!
Today's card features a second stamp from C.C. Designs' Bugga-Boos. As you've seen, it is the cute little ladybug.
- stamps-ladybug is C.C. Designs' Bugga-Boos, sentiment is C.C. Designs' Cookie Crumbs line Ladybug Friends set and stitching is Stitched Borders by Sassafrass Lass
I stamped the ladybug in StazOn Jet Black and coloured her with Reeves watercolour pencils. Her back and antennae were glossified (no, I don't think that's a word, but it just seems like the perfect verb in this case) with Judy Kin's Diamond Glaze. Ladybug's spots were coloured black and I added Diamond Stickles to give them a little sparkle. I think I will have to pick up a few more Stickles colours, black Stickles would have looked better on the spots. The sentiment and stitching were stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black.

- cardstock die cuts-Spellbinders' Nestabilities' Labels Four (a new purchase!)
- photo anchors and brads-Making Memories
- ribbon-Bobbin Ribbon
- buttons-oops, threw out the packaging
I must confess I cased the idea of placing ribbon around the ladybug's pigtails. I believe I saw it on the C.C Designs' Blog. The card was too cute and the ribbon idea adorable.
I am going to attempt to make a card with my new Whiff of Joy's Melinda for tomorrow's post. I've got her coloured, she is beautiful! Melinda's designer, Elisabeth Bell is so incredibly talented!!
