Don't Be Square

Happy Tuesday to all of you!  Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and we have a new challenge for you over on the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Our lovely Lisa picked the challenge this week and she asked that we make anything but a square.  So, I pulled out my Nestabilities and made a round easel card.

My sweet little image is from Ladybug Craft Ink's new Baby Baby set.  I used copics and colored pencils on my image and added a little stickles to his blanket.  I used white acrylic paint to make the polka dots.  I added a little bow and a button and this card was finished.  The sentiment is also from the Baby Baby set.

Be sure you go to the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see what my talented teamies have made this week.  And, you can find out if you were a lucky winner in last week's Blog Hop or TLT challenge.  I hope you find some time to join us this week for our anything but a square challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
