Ladybug Kaela

Hi, and welcome!

*** Only the rest of today, and tomorrow to leave a comment, if you want to be in with a chance to win my BLOG CANDY! ****

And I need it to be's makin' the place look untidy....haaaa!

A warm and fuzzy WELCOME to Amy who has become my 61st Follower....Hi, Amy!..........61 Followers.....are there really that many people who are prepared to put up with all my daftness??
Go visit Amy's's very on her name above.......

I had a lovely email from one of my 61 Followers....did I mention there are now 61?........ha.........asking if I got the results of my mammogram......oops....forgot to mention that everything is GOOD........phew!

Our weather has been dark grey sky, wind, and rain....gallons of the stuff......and it's been one of those days that doesn't seem to ever get properly light, so I needed a bit of sunshine.....not the heat....just the sunshine....and the only way I could get it was to play with this ickle cutie........

Her name is Ladybug Kaela and she can be found at, and I really, really needed to colour her up in pink, with my trusty Promarkers, lol........

The pretty flutterby was cut with a Martha Stewart punch from paper scraps....that mountain of scraps is not gettin' any smaller....which one of you keeps sneakin' more in?!.......

I used some seam binding for the ickle bows.........'twas cream, so I coloured it with a lilac Promarker.......oh, I'm so creative.....haaaaaaa!

Have I ever mentioned that I also have a scrap fabric mountain?  Well, maybe not exactly a mountain.....more a brew, (Lancashire it!)....although Leigh-Anne (daughter #3) is very quick to swipe any oddments I haven't actually nailed down........soooooo......this cute yo-yo was made from one of those, and a button and embroidery floss plonked on top..........

Isn't she adorable?  She's a girlie girl, so had to have a bit of bling on her pretty wings....aaawwww.......and those chubby ickle legs are sooooo cute!
Hope you enjoyed meeting her....we are both glad you dropped by.........oh I am definitely losin' it........haaaaa!
