Totally Ladybug Tuesday.

Well,it's all happening at the LADYBUGS,Laurie is now a permanent Bug and I've been given my wings,actually,I might get them taken away next week but that's a whole new story,will fill you in next Tuesday lol! Seriously though, I was beginning to think that I was destined to keep the GDT title forever but it turned out to be an oversight ;) Thanks Lisa!
What did you all think of the new Magnum Digis,aren't they fab! I hope you all enjoyed the "hop" as much as we did!
 I used my Magnum stamp for this week's DT card .

The challenge this week,set by Amanda is to use Autumn colours with the option of using additional folds in your project. This was just the kick up the backside that I needed to make an easel card, I don't know why I've left it so long since I last made one,I love making them!

I used  some neglected Basic Grey papers and some off cuts from my drawer. The papers had some,(sorry have forgotten the name but they look like teardrop shapes) I cut these out and turned them into a flower with the addition of a punched circle to the centre. A papermania scalloped border die,doubled up to make the panel across the middle,it doesn't show in the photo but I used up some sequins which IRL add a bit of interest to the brads. I used a brown fine liner to add the blanket stitching to the edges of my papers,I saw a tutorial somewhere the other week on how to do this,wish I could remember where so that I could share it.  



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Incy Wincy,Fancy folds,
OLLCB89,Dies and punches,
Magical Mondays,Punches and dies,
Victorine Originals 17,Easel,
Come and Get it,Easel cards,
Pile It On 39,Fancy folds,
The Crafty Pad 140,Stitching,
Just Some Lines,Fall colours.
Thanks for stopping by,
