Happy Monday everyone. Well it's mixed feelings from me today, the start of a short 4 days week and looking forward to my Easter Holiday, but this is a rather sad post from me as it's my very last post as a member of La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Team Monday.
I've been part of the team (or the kit team) for a whole year now (wow, that went fast), and to think I originally signed for a 3 month Guest Spot lol! If I won the lottery and didn't have to work I would stay forever lol, but sadly as bills need to be paid I still need to keep the day job, so I have to spread my time around and sadly that means giving up some of the things I love to do other things sometimes.
I have had the most fun and wonderful time and I would like to say a huge thank you to Irina, Debbie and all the girls from Team Monday and all the rest of the DT for making me so welcome and giving me such a fun time (we won't mention the parties :P ), and I hope that they will invite me again next year.
So without any more ado, ...or I will starting sniffling.....this is my swan song for LLLC. The theme for this week is Spring or Easter....and as it's my last post I wanted to make it a really good one. I think I succeeded here :)
I used the following La-La Land Crafts products on my card:
I don't really send Easter cards, so I made a card in lovely spring colours, but as a nod to Easter I made an 'egg' shaped card (it's really an oval not an egg, but close enough ;)
I coloured Ladybug Marci with my distress ink markers -
Skin: Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet
Hair: Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord
Outfit: Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy
The papers are a mix of Maja Design, Vintage Spring Basics, I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and shabbied the whole thing up with a little Gesso.
I added some glamour dust to the dots on her wing cases and boots and to the ends of her antennae.
I found this little wooden ladybird button in my stash and popped it on this lovely sheer ribbon and finished off with a mix of flowers to match my papers.
I used the following embellishments from The Ribbon Girl
Well that's all from me today, I'll be back on Friday as usual, but don't forget to check out the rest of the team's gorgeous makes here!
Have a great Monday! :) xx
