Ladybugs are the only "bug" I can think of that I actually welcome when I see. They are considered lucky after all! I love all of the children's clothing and party decor inspired by these pretty bugs so I happily accepted when a friend asked me to make ladybug cookie favors for her daughter's first birthday party. (I feel the same way about bumble bee decor, but certainly cannot say the same nice words about an in-person encounter!) I decided to work in a few designs and stick to the traditional colors.
Thank you very much Erin - I hope your little ladybug loved these!
