Totally Ladybugs Tuesday.

Happy Tuesday! How time flies when you're having fun and I've certainly been having some of that with the the lovely ladybugs! I feel kind of sad to think that next Tuesday will be my last as Guest designer and that I'll have to return my Tiara! :-( 
Till then I'm going to have some more fun!  This week it's Gaelle's Challenge, the theme is "Use some red in your project" So for my card I used the rather lovely,cuddly Magnum with add ons,coloured him using Copics,added on a slice of cake using a foam pad and cut him out using my Nellie Snellen Frame dies.


The sentiment comes with Magnum,I just added some doodling around the edges and a little glossy accents to his nose.It doesn't show up too well but there's also some stickles added to the candle flame. The buttons are added using red glittery thread, no ribbon this week's card as it's for my friend's husband.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Scrappy Frogs,Use Red,
SSIC94,Doodle,
Speedy The Cat 60,Use buttons,
Stamp and Doodle,Male,no flowers,
Catch the Bug,Man's world,
C4C92,Use string,floss,twine etc,
Mami Doodles,For a man,
If you fancy some fun next Tuesday,be sure to join in with all the fun of  a Blog Hop! you wouldn't want to miss out when you see the fantastic stamps that are up for grabs!

Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
