Ladybug Christmas DT card for TSC

How to fix torn paper on the back of your card when you've taped the whole front down just to find out your card base was upside down and you had to rip it off

Hi everyone! 
Today I'm sharing the card I made for Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's challenge is everyone's favorite, Anything Goes
Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps
My bestie loves ladybugs so I've chosen to use the Scene It-Ladybug Christmas. This will most likely be the card she'll be getting for Christmas this year...but we'll see.(Jan,don't look)

 This will be the last challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner so be sure to link up your latest creation with us there one last time.
I've enjoyed being on this team so much! We had such awesome sponsors every week. 
I was exposed to a lot of great artists and artwork. Some of the images I've colored in the last 8 months have been images that I never would have imagined coloring and yet some of those images have turned into cards that have become some of my favorite creations!
Other images I was fortunate to work with were on my "I can't wait to color that image someday" list.
I loved that over and over again "someday" turned into "this day".
It has been a joy for me to share these cards for TSC because it really pushed me to create a card every week that might inspire creativity.
I always tell everyone, coloring is one of the best therapy's there is! 
Wow, I must be so balanced now.
Ha! I'm Thankful for all the consistent therapy I've had. A life may have been saved. :)
Tammy, thank's so much for asking me to join this wonderful team of designers. It was great getting to know every one.
I take my hat off to all the ladies I've worked with who were so fabulous at leaving comments for everyone who linked up with us. You girls rocked at that!
And speaking of hats...I finally sold my Steampunk Pirate Hat on Etsy today!
 This morning as I was half asleep still and checking my email I asked my husband what he bought for $$$?
 He said nothing and I said well then our paypal account has been hacked!
 He came to read the email that had gotten me all in a tizzy and said, it's a payment to you not from you.
 I was puzzled as to who would send me that money when it dawned on me that someone must have bought my hat!
 I was excited and at the same time I started to miss my hat already.
Just last week I was picking out a permanent spot in my craft room for it.
  I hope the buyer gets a lot of enjoyment from it. I loved making it,
I feel a little more confident to list some of my cards on Etsy again. Funny how one sale can do that.
Maybe one day(this year) I'll make some more dough art creations to list as well.
Right now I'm making 11 Christmas tags for a swap at my local scrapbook store. Can't wait to share those with you soon.

 Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs!

Your card made me smile. It is such a fun image and a bit different from the usual. I also had to smile at the 'repair' for when you stick a card front up-side down. I guess we've all been there at some time. I saw you on Make it Monday. Kate x

Gorgeous card, Debora. Such great detail and colour. Those are the cutest ladybugs (or ladybirds as we say here in the UK)I've ever seen. Thank you for joining us at the Cutie Pie Challenge. Jane xx
