Ladybug, Ladybug Fly Away Home

Happy April Fool's Day! I won't be playing any tricks on anyone this year. I can't think of anything new! LOL! I hope no one plays any tricks on your today either, but if they do let me know what they did so I will something new to pull on my family next year!

I have the winner of the card give away I had on Tuesday. Random.org picked #14 which makes SPECIALCRAFTMOM4 the winner. Will you please contact me at usyungs@gmail.com and give me your address so I can mail your card to you?

I have a really summery card for you today. I know it's barely spring, but it sure feels warm enough to be summer here!

This adorable image is called Ladybug Friend , and is available now at Squigglefly! I colored her with these Copic markers




I chalked the sky and stamped my grass sprigs stamp from Art Impressions on the ground. I made different colored little dots here and there on the grass to look like wildflowers. The border on the side is from Martha Stewart and I punched one from red card stock and one from black. Then I glued the red punched out dots on to the black piece. The ribbon on the back was originally black with white dots, but I colored the dots red with a Copic. The little flowers were punched and then a hole punch was used for the flower centers. I'm entering this in the Squigglefly challenge which is to use flower embellishments on your card! You should play along too - if you use a Squigglefly image you can win a prize!

I hope you have a wonderful day, and I'll be back her on Saturday when we have another release from Squigglefly! Thanks for looking!

What a cutie! I love this image and your coloring really makes it pop! Wish I could color hair like you! Love the layers and of course the borders really grab me! Something flew on some papers I was sorting through and when I looked closer, I realized it was a lady bug! :) Spring is here!
