Ladybug Invite!

Here's my latest project, which is to make 10 of these invitations for my son's mum-in-law.  They are for a kids party.

I found the idea for the ladybug somewhere on the web.  It's easy peasy, just using punches, but a little time consuming.  
For the wings, I first punched out a black circle, then a red circle in which I punched small holes.  I then cut the wings in two and glued the red to the black.  This is what's behind them.........

The rest of the info for the party is on the inside of the card.

Gotta share another picture of our grandson...

That's it for today folks,

Bling it up!

In my travels through blogland I have come across some very *blinged up*
ATG guns.  I was looking at some the other night and that made me think about doing mine.  I searched through my goodies and found quite a few items that I thought would probably work. Anyway, here's the result.........

I didn't paint it first, which is something a lot of people do, but it means taking everything apart and I didn't want to do all that....besides, I like the pink.
I found the sparkly *B* at Walmart.  The flower is one I made quite some time ago, I used leaves from some silk flowers.  The stick on black gems and the flower & swirls are from the dollar store. The dragon fly is a charm found at Walmart also.  I didn't add anything to the handle, thought it might not last long and could possibly be a hindrance when I'm using it.....and I use it a lot. I didn't do the other side.....not sure if I will.

A few more pictures....

That's it for today, have a great weekend all!

Ride 'em Cowboy!

Yesterday, the 10th of October was our wedding anniversary.  
I wanted to make a card for my hubby that was fitting for him....lots of possibilities there, but I chose this theme because he really enjoys spending time with his horse.

I started with black, then added a layer of kraft, then the polka dot one which is from the *Harpers Boutique* stack by The Paper Studio....this is layered onto black.  The western themed frame is a digi image that I have had for a long time and have no idea where I got it.  I roughed up the edges and used distress ink to make it look aged. I coloured the image *Cowboy McCoy* from Lori Boyd with Copics and popped it up on the frame. Finally I added the cross stitches and sentiment.  I won't show you all the soppy stuff on the inside  ;-)

 A couple more pictures.......

I thought I would show you a picture of our little Grandson today too, he's 11 weeks old now and growing like a weed.  

That's all for today, hope you have a lovely day, come back for another visit soon.  Bye for now,

I have entered this card in the following challenges, all *Anything Goes*......

In the Pink.... & Green

I'm still using my new papers *Lola & Luca* from *The Paper Studio*
I just love the colours and patterns in this stack.
It was supposed to have four rectangles, but I messed up the one on the top right.  I decided it looked okay with just the 3, so I zig zag stitched around them and added the punched out flower.  I embossed each of the layers to give it some dimension, then added the button.  

Here's a closer look at the flower. 

That's all for today, hope to *see* you all soon.
Have a lovely day!

Heartfelt Thanks

My latest card measures 5 1/4" x 6 1/2".  
The papers I used are "Lola & Luca" from "The Paper Studios".  I zig zag stitched around each of the 4 panels, although it's hard to see....should have used black. At the bottom are circles that I punched out then layered. The ribbon is from my stash and finally, the sentiment is stamped, then layered and popped up with 3D Dots.

Thanks for popping in today, hope everyone is well.
