Ladybug Crafts Ink's 2nd BLOG HOP!!!!

Hello my lovely Ladybug friends!!!! Well today is TLT Totally Ladybug Tuesday and today is a special day as we are hosting Ladybug Crafts Ink's 2nd BLOG HOP!!! Hip hip horay I hear you cry!

OK if you haven't arrived hear from Ang's blog the please go back to Head Ladybug/Cow's Blog Kerry and begin your lovely blog hop journey!

This blog hop is also special because we are celebrating the launch of a new range of stamps - CUPCAKE CUTIES!!! They are gorgeous! And I'm a touch excited lol!!!

So here's my Cupcake Cutie, we had a theme of anything goes so I got busy thinking away over the weekend of what I could make. It had to be "special" for the release and eye catching! We have had a run of Birthday parties lately and this weekend we were at another party and there were the most scrumptious and divine looking cupcakes there! On the drive home we were chatting away and I had one of those light bulb moments you see in films "ping" went the idea in my head, "why not create a cupcake shaped card which would be perfect for the Cupcake Cutie theme!?!?!"

This cupcake card is HUGE but doesn't it look delicious - good enough to eat I think?!
It measures almost 11 inches tall by 10.75 inches wide!

I loved colouring this little cutie (after my dilemma trying to get her printed in the correct size!!), she reminds me of my gorgeous little girl Grace with her pinafore dress and beautiful blonde curls! Of course I added the mandatory glitter to the image and card (which really wasn't a problem at all with this gorgeous image!) Simon was laughing at me as I was covered in glitter, I could even see my nose twinkling when I moved!!! I was rather covered! :)

Isn't she scrummy!? I had to use bright colours for this Cutie, I chose Bo Bunny's Petal Pushers papers and double dot cardstock:
Orange Micro Dot Ribbon (also from the Funky Farm website)
Prima E-Line Pearls and Crystals
