Lovely Ladybug Tag & Giveaway!

Hello! Happy Friday! :) Do you have any weekend plans to speak of? I'm going to work most of the weekend, but I'm pretty jazzed that tonight I'm going out to dinner with my hubby while our son has a sleep over at his gram's house. Oh what a treat that will be! There's nothing like having a little one-on-one time with your soul mate!

Okay, how about a crafty share? First, do you have a favorite paper crafter or two that inspires you? I have a few and one of my all time favorites is Betsy Veldman! She's a go-to gal for Paper Crafts magazine and one of the talented design team members at Papertrey Ink. She's just awesome and her projects are always jaw dropping! I can always rely on Betsy to get my mojo going! Well, this week Besty has been posting crafty projects on her blog made with vintage finds! It's been a real treat to see what she can do with an old tea towel, buttons, and transfers! Along with her crafty shares she posted a challenge to make something with vintage items. Well I can't resist Betsy or a good challenge so I made this Lovely Ladybug tag.


I found the lace trim at our local flea market over the summer and the cute little ladybug pins are from one of my favorite vintage stores, Two Old Birds.


I fell in love with these little ladies when I saw them! I bought almost all they had because I thought that maybe you would like some for a project of your own! I've listed them in my Etsy shop for those of you who are interested! :) Plus, I'm giving a set of five away to one of you who leaves a comment on this post! Is that fun, or what?!?! Just leave a comment anytime this weekend and on Monday morning I'll draw a winner.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by to see what's happening in my neck of the woods. I hope you enjoyed my share. If you see this post before the end of Friday, maybe you can head over to Betsy's blog and get the details to play along in her challenge? :) Kathy

Your tag is smashing, love the paper choice and the sew on circles. Perfect as ever! :) Those little ladybugs are really cute, no doubt about that. I'm off to check out Betsy's blog, but are sure one to inspire me, and I love your blog.
Have a nice evening :)

LOVE the ladybugs! You have just the right elements for this vintagey kind of cards! ( I also entered one card for this challenge--so not my style, but I tried)! Have a sweet weekend!

Your items are VERY creative. I am glad there are people like you out there to help us design-challenged folks.

This is adorable, Kathy - love those ladybugs! Back in the dark ages (1960s) there was a clothing manufacturer (could be Villager??) and you got a little ladybug pin each time you purchased a sweater or blouse. I had forgotten all about them - thanks for a walk down memory lane!

Isha said...
