This is my card for Cindy's teaparty challenge: http://mothermark.blogspot.com/2009/...-la-bella.html
I used an old stampcraft lady bug stamp. I used some of my computer generated polka dot paper. I added some flourishes and dotted trails. I outlined the card in red. Finally a flat card that I can mail without any extra postage!
I think I know what kind of bug the thug is. I think it is an Asian Beetle. They look like lady bugs but are a little oranger. They bite and are mean. My youngest son will scream when he sees them. They love to find white walls in the fall. I hope all the lady bugs can rescue Loulabella.

Fun and beautiful card MariLynn, great idea to trail them with dots. Awesome work, but don't worry to much about Lou-la-Bella, she is doing pretty good from where I'm sitting. Beautiful swirls too. TFSmy friend.
