Totally Ladybug Tuesday.

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink and the challenge this time,chosen by Kerry is to "Use your favourite stamp!"  not too tricky as I have to admit since becoming a Ladybug I have fallen a little bit in love with Jack,he is just so lovely to colour.  My problem was which of my Jacks to use????? I decided to go with my lovely "Dear Santa" stamp,you can never be too soon with adding to the Christmas card box can you lol!

Excuse the fact that there are 3 photos, each looking very similar but I found it hard to get a photo that explained exactly what it was that I'd done, I hope that you get the gist.



I used one of the square card blanks with the 3 scalloped sides,folded the front in half and added my lovely Jack to the middle of the front folded edge. I added gems to the punched snowflakes and brushed the edges of the papers from the  Dovecraft "Let It Snow" paperpack with a chalk eye.  I also cut around the image using offcuts from the papers as wallpaper.


I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Stampfun 58,Christmas,
Woodware USA37,Anything goes,
Come And Get It,Anything goes,
Sweet Stampin,Christmas in July,
Crafty Catz 93,Christmas,
If you fancy a Jack of your own or any other Ladybug Stamp,don't forget to check out the AMAZING SALE.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
