I made this card for Teapot Tuesday where this week we are heading to a country estate in New York to help save Lou-La-Bella Rock-A-Fella from a big bug thug! Sound crazy? Check out this thread: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...=453140&page=4
These two little popped-up ladybugs are hiding out under the flower casing the estate so they can figure out how to save Lou-La-Bella! They blend so well into the scenery, I'm sure the big bug thug won't see them! But before the rescue attempt takes place, we have to have our tea and goodies!
Missed you all last week (except Dawn, flowergal36, who I got to see in real life while I was traveling)! Glad to be back! Thanks for the invite, Cindy!
Oh, and this is also for yesterday's CAS challenge (CAS31) which was to pop something up on our card. I popped up the ladybugs.

Hey Pop and Spot! You silly little ladybugs! I can see your big eyelashes....get under the flower more! More!! Even more guys....I know, its the pits to have those lengthy lashes but I just heard the bug thug might be coming your way. He spotted a tulip patch to the left of you and thinks he can hide Lou-la-Bella there! Shhh! Here he comes!
Honestly, I think those two are the most precious ladybugs I have ever seen! And the flower? I did not know there were ladybug daisies! Such a fun card Carla.....So glad you are back this week! Are you hungry? We have lots and lots to eat and then we have quite at feat!

Oh good! I see you brought the decoys, Carla. Bug Thug is like your typical male: his head is turned by any purty female. Those long ladybug eyelashes are gonna be his undoing, that's for sure. Good thinkin', Carla. Such a pretty, lady-like card!
I'm glad you are back with us this week, and I must admit that I am envious that you and Dawn got to hang out together. How fun!

These little lady bugs are so cute. I love the embossed base of your card. I love all the sparkle on your card. I am glad that you and Dawn had a nice visit. I am like Charlene, I am jealous. I wish I could visit with you all too. My son was talking about how in 2 years the band is planning on taking a trip to Disney World. He said you could come too mom. I told him any trips I would be taking would either have to include Colorado to see Cindy and Connie Jo, and Marilynn, California to see Cathy (Mutnik) then swing through the carolinas to see you, Anne Ryan, Grace, Dawn and then on to Florida to see Faith, then swing up to NY.... the list could go on and on. He just sat and laughed at me.

Carla, it's very hard to hide when you are RED...thankfully they found a RED flower to shield them! Their glitter will be a good defense against those spitting bugs!! I love your colors (of course), and the ribbons!!

Oh Carla, what fun you must have had spending time with Dawn. Hope you took pictures!.....Glad you are back at the teapot party. We need all the help we can get finding Miss Ladybug-lou-la-Bella-rock-a fella! Your card is darling. I love those sparklie ladybugs with the very long eye lashes under that red flower. One blink with those sexy lashed and the bug thug will surrender. Darling card! TFS :0)
