My first official Lady Bud card.... that name just makes me smile! :)

Well by all rights I should have had this finished to go with this morning's big Baby Buds Designs announcement post, but with this wild and crazy weekend, there was just so time for crafting. shocking, I know! ;)

so I spent some much beloved time this afternoon playing with these 2 cute little buds..... for a card for Mick to give to his special someone....... she is loving the cards so far, and golly gee, these girls just remind me so much of her. and actually the hair on these guys is so much like Mick's it's craaazy!

I happened to see that the challenge this week over at The Shabby Tea Room is to make a project using tags. I originally printed out these 2 side by side, but then decided to turn them into tags. I found this beautiful heart in my collection of bits from Making Memories Vintage Findings, as is the bg paper. I spruced it up a bit with some glimmer mist - first spraying with walnut gold and then laying a piece of salvaged lace across the top and spraying with tea rose. the lace pattern just ever so lightly shows through........ so pretty irl! I adhered it as a pocket, poofing it up in the center to give some extra dimension. the beautiful Prima flower is also sprayed with the walnut gold glimmer mist. the little pink hearts in the upper corner are part of the MMVF line, too, the big button is vintage, but the others are MM, and the sequin trim is May Arts. I edged the girl tag and the heart in lavender lace distress stickles. The little girl's dress, headband, and shoes are painted with shimmerz and the boy's overalls have baby buttons added. Base card is edged in craft vanilla and tags are edged in the new SU! kraft ink. Baby Buds are watercolored as usual.

again, please check out the blogs of the other amazingly talented ladies on the BBD DT! you will be in for a treat! :)
