Ladybirds and ladybirds and MORE ladybirds

Although my blog is called Hedgehogs and Ladybirds, I don't seem to use many of them on my cards.
So here is a card that uses my quota of ladybirds for this year!
Seriously... this card took time.  A LOT of time.  I'm not sure quite what came over me.
It took long enough to create the digital file (using the lil bug from THIS digikit).
Then adding the Glossy Accents... Then cutting them all out... Then paper piecing.  The stickers are THESE ones. Love 'em.

And finally, who else has a cat that loves boxes.  Seriously, my cat has the WHOLE garden to sit in, loads of lovely sunny spots, and he chooses to sit here!

Enjoy your Sunday.

Very cute card, Lucy! You have a lot
of patience.

This is so cute Lucy! I would say definitely worth the trouble, and as long as you had fun, why not??

And my two kitties are exactly the same - one of mine decided that a piece of brown packaging paper I put on the floor temporarily belonged to her and made it her 'sitting place' for weeks and weeks. I eventually got sick of the sight of it and chucked it!

Yes, that is a strange phenomena, cats do like to do that :D

My cat always chooses a box to sit in - even if he doesn't fit in it which is hilarious to watch! Loving your creations!

Our cat Punkin LOVED boxes! She also loved bags... scared us many times, when we'd go to pick up a bag that we thought was empty and she'd be in it!
