Whimsie Doodles FREE Turtle Stamp

It is always nice to get something for free! Well, this “stamp” (digital line drawing) turtle is free.

Artist Melyssa Connolly of Whimsie Doodles created "Whimsie" the turtle and a "stamp" of him is available for free on her website. She also shares a number of delightful cards people have made using "Whimsie".

There are lots of other stamps on this website that can be purchased and immediately downloaded. All are in a 300 dpi JPG file format (white background). The images are ready to be printed or imported into image-editing software (such as Photoshop or Paintshop) to be re-sized and colored.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from LadyBug Shop!

LadyBug Shop featured in Delaware Today

This month's issue of Delaware Today, the state's leading magazine, ran a nice story about small towns in Kent County. Not only did it highlight our hometown, Milford, it gave special attention to the LadyBug Shop. You can read the article at : 
I was especially pleased that in a companion article the magazine included a great photo of kids enjoying the LadyBug Parade, the event that starts Milford's annual Bug & Bud Festival each year. This year the seventh Bug & Bud Festival will be held on Saturday, April 24. Its a great time to visit Milford! The LadyBug Shop will be using our parking lot as the venue for this year's Ladybug Sidewalk Art Contest. And as always, Rhonda and I, together with some of our grand kids, will be leading the parade.
