My name is Kerry and I'm the owner of Ladybug Crafts Ink, an independent stamp and digi company.

Since then Ruby Fairies, Magnum & Lily and The Teenagers are but a few of the collections I've added. Billie Bear, our most recent addition, has proved extremely popular and will be joined very soon with a new release this month!




The prize for our May winner will be two cling stamps of their choice from Ladybug Crafts shop.

Enjoy the day, whatever you are up too.
