This post is all about my daughter Zali's love of ladybugs! And it all ties in nicely with this week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge — make it personal — and is also another one layer with legs for the less is more challenge!
The ladybug theme has come up a few times in the last week or so (more than the usual amount it does with Zali), firstly, when we were reminiscing over Sesame Street's "ladybug picnic" song from way back in my childhood, and then during the week while grocery shopping, I found some adorable ladybug muffin cases and had to get them for Zali.
So… it seemed appropriate for this challenge to make a ladybug card for her — just to tell her I love her and that she's cute as a bug ;)
Stamps: Just Believe, Bugs & Kisses
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Pear Pizzazz
Other: 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon (card 2)
The card in the second picture is the one that Zali actually received. I decided to add some ribbon because I thought the scored lines on the original were not quite enough. I thought I liked the ribbon better, but now I'm not sure. Anyway, Zali was thrilled with the card and that's all that matters! She was also thrilled with the muffin cases!
Earlier in the year I made cupcakes for her birthday party and the muffin cases might have been good then. Anyway, I did find some gorgeous ladybug candles at the time, which each cupcake featured. They were so cute, and Zali was very happy!And just in case you haven't seen "Ladybug Picnic", or you want to reminisce with me, here it is for you…
We are still singing the song…
