1. This is the card I made for this week's recipient of the Teapot Tuesday challenge!
2. I am busy working on a surprise but after reading the cheater email....I was walking by this ribbon with lady bugs on it in my stamp room when it called out and said...
*Hey, you lazy butt! You can make a card with me! It doesn't have to be fancy schmancy, you don't have to take lots of time to make it, just think about how cute I would look with those red and white polka dotted buttons over there on the shelf.*
3. Then the buttons started saying,
*Yah, use us, use us! We wanna go on a trip....to the home of a ladybug lover!*
4. Turns out, I created the cousins of Ladybug Loulabella Rockafellah...All you *old* teapotters know about her! Snort!
Hugs to you all....I am getting so many awesome cards! Thanks Sweet Teapotters!

Oh yes indeed, I was remembering Loulabella yesterday. I was away for that week, but I still have Marie-alice's wonderful card from that party in my favourites, and I spotted some of her ship's crew at the party this week. Those buttons make the cutest ladybugs!
My tickle card to you hasn't got lost (at least, not yet!!). I brought it to work last week but it was in a custom envelope and mysteriously the sellotape that lives in my backpack (I'm famous for it in work) wasn't there, so I couldn't seal the envelope. And I've been sick ever since...but it WILL be on the way.

Cindy, Cindy, Cindy....those are the cutest lady bugs with those dotted buttons. It's funny I was staring at those same buttons in my stash, but they didn't jump out at to make lady bugs. Very cute card.

Oh, Cindy, that ribbon is da bomb and your ladybugs that are on the warpath to eatin aphids and so cute with their lil dotted buttons and bows! And it's not how much time it takes to create a card, it's the thought that counts! So glad you decided to play along this week~
