Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenge


It Tuesday so out come all the little ladybugs to play and this week it was my turn to set the challenge. Well you all know how I love making men's cards so naturally I wanted to see what everyone else could come up with!!
For my card I used the lovely stamp called JACK AND THE WORM! Isn't he just so typical of little boys. I can remember one of my son's had a liking for worms!! We used to find them everywhere, except in the garden!! I made some worm embellishments using a tube of brown candle paint and lots of glamour dust! Good fun to make but took ages to dry, nearly 24 hours!
If you get time please stop round the other ladybugs and see what they have come up with, you will be guaranteed lots of inspiration!! You can see all the cards HERE, individual links are in my left sidebar. And if you see any stamps you fancy then why not pop over to Ladybug Crafts Ink and treat yourself. Remember there is still a discount available till the end of November!!
Medium - pencils, candle paint, fine liner
Sentiment - SeeD's sentiment set
Embellishments - binding, wax worms, fancy cut scissors, epoxy dots
Papers - DCWV

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
Polka Doodles - make your own embellishments (made some wax worms)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - followed their lovely sketch
Cute Card Thursday - make your own!
Cards for Men - Happy Birthday
Welcome to my newest follower KRISTIE!!
