Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge 8 - Song Title

Good morning and welcome to another Totally Ladybug Tuesday... this is the last challenge of the year (sniff!!)... but don't worry we'll be back in the new year (hurrah!!)

Firstly congratulations to all the winners from last weeks challenge and blog hop!!

This week the challenge has been set by the lovely Tams and it is

Song Title

Now this might seem a bit of a toughy, but I bet you can look at any one of your stamps and think of something... or, failing that, cheat and ask google for help :-)

Anyway, here's what I came up with

By happy coincidence a colleague of mine asked me to make a card for her Grandson, who is turning 18, mad keen on football, and who lives in Italy (are you still with me??).  Well I'd got the post-it note in my bag with the details on it, when on the way home...

My Name is Luca by Suzanne Vega

came on the radio... how spooky is that!!

And so, the idea for my card was born... I had SO many ideas for this challenge and was hoping to show a few more, but what with making Christmas cards nineteen to the dozen they kinda got parked :-(  Maybe if I get a chance this week I'll try and make a few...

Football Jack - Ladybug Crafts Ink; Sentiments from Sentimental Numbers set - Ladybug Crafts Ink
Dark Blue and Dark Red Bazzill; Papers - {you}th collection by Prima;
Buttons; Twine; Copics

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time

Have you entered my candy

Very cute, and a great idea!
That's how my card theme came about, I was in the car and this song came on and I had that "lightbulb" moment!
Have a fabulous Christmas
