Make It Monday #49 with Ladybug Crafts Ink and a DT call

.
Hi MIM fans
Thanks for swinging by my blog today.

What a fabulous weekend we've just had. Hubby and took our boys on a little hike yesterday, their first one and the first one I have done in quite a while. It was 6.4km round trip (mainly up hill) to check out a gorgeous waterfall.



I'm certainly feeling it today, LOL. The best part is that this beautiful place is just a ten minute drive from our house!

Ok, let's move on to the Make It Monday linky party now.

Wow, you guys are amazing! Week after week you keep that creativity coming. The Design Team and I absolutley love coming to visit you and checking out your gorgeous creations.

For my card this week I decided to make a smaller gift card using this sweet "Ruby Fairy" image from our sponsor.


Isn't she just the sweetest little fairy?!



This week we are sponsored by the wonderful
