was proving a bit harder than she realised

Others in the Little Profiles series:

    Hahaha, so cute! Love the title; got me thinking of the ladybug in Disney’s “A Bug’s Life” who said “Just because I’m a ladybug, doesn’t mean I’m a lady!” >o<

  • oh that’s right!! I remember him Mui-Ling…it was a really tough bloke wasn’t it? lol, thanx so much :)

    ha!I’m working on a ladybug thing at the moment, and though very different conceptually, they sort of relate.I wish I was finished it so I could show you! I think you would probably laugh a little bit more than a lot :-D.
    I love this little lady x

  • it’s so funny how in synch many of us are, i know i’ll be on an idea, and then see 4-5 people loading up similar themes…. i can’t wait to see your lady Flower :) x thx
