Step 1

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Remove 1 tablespoon to a small dish and tint black. Place the black cream cheese mixture in a small plastic bag; set aside.

Add the chives, garlic salt and parsley to the remaining cream cheese mixture. Spread over crackers. Arrange two tomato quarters on each for the ladybug wings.

For heads, halve the olives widthwise; place one half on each cracker. Insert two chives into olives for antennae. Spin a tiny corner off the plastic bag with the black cream cheese mixture and pipe spots onto the wings.
