Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Make Your Own DP

Hello everyone!  I hope you're having a good day.  Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and our Guest DT member, Ang, challenged all of us to make our own dp for our project this week.  Hmm, I don't make my own dp so this was a bit of a tough one for me.  But I finally came up with an idea. 

My stamp is Ladybug Craft Ink's Nikki and Buttercup Running in Snow.  I love this image...it's one of my favorite LCI stamps and I was so happy when Kerry sent it to me.  I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and used my Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder to make my dp.  I thought the snowflake embossing would go perfectly with this image.  I used my Glamour Dust to add a ton of sparkle.  It doesn't show that well in the picture, but believe me, IRL this baby sparkles!  I used my Nestabilities to cut out and mat my image, and then added some pearls and ribbon.

If you'd like to have this stamp or any of the other adorable LCI stamps, you can order them here.  And remember, Kerry is offering 15% off your stamp order through the end of November 2010.  Just be sure to use the discount code CB2010.

We'll be having a Blog Hop next week over at our new Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Now, please be sure to visit all the other Lovely Ladybugs to check out their projects this week:
