Creative Ladybirds Blog Hop

Welcome to Creative Ladybirds Creations Blog Hop AND our monthly challenge where it's always "anything goes" with some fabulous sponsors and a great group of super creative ladies!!!! If you have arrived from Kaylee, then your are right on track!!!

Our 3 fabulous sponsors are:

I got over zealous as usual and couldn't decide which image I wanted to us and thus went crazy and made 4 projects for today. 

My first card is a belated birthday card using Ikes Art Alice Rabbit but I'm sure you would have guessed there would be at least one Alice in Wonderland related project for my blog today:

  • size A2 card using Recollection cardstock and background paper is in my "stash" purrfect backdrop for my Wonderland card
  • Alice Rabbit was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Spectrum Noir Marker for ears and gel pen accents 
  • sentiment, "Here's hoping you forgot your Birthday too" had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC   
  • the inside sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is from Deedee's Digi's Cup Joy which was chalked around the edges and mounted on scraps 

My next project is another Ikes Art, Saucy Fairy, who has become a "Calendar Girl" and is Miss May for my little desk calendar. 

  • my calendar measure 6.25 x 6.5 inches with black Recollection card stock on the back and DCWV The Calendar Stack for my background
  • Saucy Fairy was colored using Prisma Colored pencils with gel pen accents
  • sentiment, "Spread your Wings" is from K&Co. Susan Winget Collection
  • sentiment, "Have the Faith of a bird and know you can fly" had been a freebie from Create with TLC which has rounded corners and chalked around the edges
My next project is a Mother's Day card using Lacy Sunshine Daisy Delite:

I just love the look of gingham and it looks sew springy with lilac and yellow gingham check together -don't you think?

  • yellow Recollection card stock is my background for my size A2 card with Recollection yellow gingham as a border using Martha Stewart Eyelet Punch and DCWV The Girls Stack purple gingham as my background
  • Daisy Delite was colored using Prisma Colored pencils with gel pen accents
  • daisy embellishment is from K&Co.
  • white satin ribbon wrapped around the yellow gingham, then tied into a bow with a little ladybug button peeking out compliments of Brenda Burfeind in a bottle swap
  • inside sentiment, "Wishing you a very special mother's day. Thank you for always being there for me" was found on the internet during a Google search -sentiment, has rounded corners and chalked around the edges and mounted on matching background as the front with the exception the purple gingham now has the Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch 
. . . and finally for my last project, I used Enchanted Studio Butterfly Shoe and made it into a little bag to be used as a gift card holder or perhaps jewelry -diamonds!!

  • pink zebra Recollection card stock was cut using Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge using the full size
  • Butterfly Shoe was colored with Whisper Stroke Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils with gel pen accents and of course Stickles!!
  • the other side of my bag has a cute little flower gift tag tied with some cording from a tassel that a certain kitten destroyed but the string will be recycled as I had done here - the center of the flower is a large reddish pink pearl from Miriam's Crafting Supplies 
Did I forget to mention, I have a little blog candy for someone who leaves a comment -I also do machine embroidery and am offering a special little gift either for yourself or to give to someone special a linen tea towel with Cat in Tea Cups
