Anything Goes at Ladybug Crafts

Hello there!

Is your week going ok so far?  Its a short week and a long bank holiday yippee!  Its Totally Ladybug Tuesday of course and we have some exciting news for you this week!  Keep reading for the news but first our new challenge and we have a nice and easy one for you this week
"Anything Goes"!!
So just go for it this week! We look forward to seeing all your projects.  Here is my card:

At my recent craft weekend we did a couple of projects using acetate.  Now I am a bit nervous about using acetate but I think it does look effective, so I thought I would give it a go this week! 

I've used some of the fabulous paper from The Girls' Paperie Kitch collection (I can't believe I only bought one sheet of each!!)  I've layered with some bazzill bling on the inside of the acetate and I have then cut out some of the bunting and added this with some bakers twine to the front of the acetate. 

I have used Cupcake Cutie - Make A Wish from LCI here and layered a nestie on the back of the inside, so basically all the glue is hidden. 

On the back is some plain cream card where you can write your message. I've done some paper piecing for her dress and cupcake case, fluffy stuff and glitter for the cupcake icing.

Please go to the challenge blog to see all the other fabulous projects from the DT, and also see if you are a winner from last week's celebration challenge.

So to the exciting news! Kerry will very shortly be releasing some new designs and to celebrate we will be having a blog hop next week!!  So grab the banner below, stick it onto your side bar and check back next week to join in all the fun!  You will love the new releases!
I will be entering my card into the following challenges this week:

I think thats it from me today. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Take care
