Merry Christmas!

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have arrived at my mom's house for the holiday's and am looking forward to several days of relaxing and time with my family. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!

I think I may be getting some fun new stamps for Christmas so I'm looking forward to trying them out and posting some new cards in January! Stay Tuned!

Cards As Promised

So I'll post a few of the cards I've been working on. There are currently almost 75 downstairs waiting to go to their new homes. I think I'm all carded out! I have been taking a break the last few nights and scrapbooking instead.

I did up a gift pack this afternoon of 5 cards - in French for a friend of mine. I wanted something simple that she would enjoy.

These cards have been created using the Medallion stamp set, Voeux Mignons, Upsy Daisy Baroque Motifs and Priceless. All Cardstock and ribbon is from Stampin' Up! as well.

The following cards are "Cases". My creative juices stopped flowing after card #60!

New Store and New Catalogue

I apologize greatly for not posting much lately. I've been a busy elf getting card packs ready for Christmas. I don't want to publish pictures since that will let the cat out of the bag and spoil the Christmas surprise for those receiving card packs!

I wanted to let you know about my new store! I have been using "" but have switched over to using a new blog to sell my cards. If you click on the "Ladybug Designs" logo to the right of this blog it will take you directly do the new site where you can directly purchase my cards using paypal. The cards are all priced in $CAD.

I will be adding new cards over the next few days as I get some pictures taken of my stock so please be patient as I get this new site up and running.

I also want to let you know that the Stampin' UP! Occassions catalogue will be arriving in mailboxes shortly and will be available online January 4th. It is full of fabulous new products and as you may have heard SU! will be introducing acrylic blocks in this catalogue! I'm pumped.

I will post some cards for you tomorrow!
