A Ladybug Celebration!

Something very exciting has happened to me, and I am delighted, surprised and really, really happy all at the same time!

A little while ago Kerry who owns Ladybug Crafts Ink, one of my favourite stamp companies, asked for applications to join her new DT, well I applied, kept everything crossed, but not in a million years did I ever think I'd be chosen!!  But I have!!  Whoo hoo!!

So I can now display this badge

How cool is that!!  Honestly I never imagined for one minute when I started cardmaking and more recently when I started blogging that I would ever get picked for a DT!

After that it seemed only appropriate to make a card last night to celebrate!!  Winestool Nikki seemed the obvious choice :-)

The papers are more from the Peacock Lane range by Bo Bunny, and I have coloured Nikki with Copics.  For a change I've put the ribbon top to bottom, and used some lovely organza that was lurking in my stash, along with some adhesive gems I'd forgotten all about :-)  Oh and there is a dot or two of stickles above her glass, and glossy accents on her shoes too.  As there is teal in there, I'm going to add this to the pile for the 25th of September - there is still plenty of time to join in with this and win some Blog Candy

I've no idea why the gems look like they do in the pics - they look like i've added them in photoshop afterwards, but I promise they are attached to the card and look nice and sparkly - if I get chance later I'll retake them in better light :-)

The first challenge is happening on Tuesday 14th September so keep an eye on Kerry's blog for more info

Joining Kerry on the DT are Anita; Tams; Hayley; Pinky; Mary J; Gaelle; Michele; and Lisa... oh, and me!

Supplies: Winestool Nikki, Ladybug Crafts Ink; Sentiment, from Papermania set; Copics; Stickles; Glossy Accents; Papermania self adhesive gems; Papers Peacock Lane and Double Dot by Bo Bunny; Organza ribbon from stash, Bazzill Basics gem template

I'd like to enter this card for

And... I've got more exciting news to share soon as well!!  It's a good job I'm good at keeping secrets LOL!! (and no, before anyone asks, I am not, repeat not, having any more kids!)

Thanks for stopping by, off to London and the science museum now, more tomorrow!
