Hey, Little Lady!

Happy Friday Friends! How did it become Friday already? Oh yes...that is what happens when you have two snow days and then a two hour delay from school! The week simply flies by! The snow has piled up so high here that it is past my waist when I stand in it without snowshoes...lol! Now, that's a lot of snow!

This week's Blogger's Challenge is to use the colors red, black, and white. Would you like to play along too? Just link your card below. I should have probably made a Valentine with these colors, but I decided to go with this sweet little ladybug from my new Tiny Treats: Birthday set from Papertrey Ink. I used the Mat Stack 5 die from PTI to cut out the red polka dotted piece. Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red ink was used for this piece. I stamped the image, the sentiment, and the middle circle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The little ladybug is colored with Copic Markers (C3, C9, Eooo, R20, and R29.) The polka dotted paper from October Afternoon is sewed to a cream panel. Before I added that panel to my card base, I used a zig zag stitch to add a wide strip of black. A few Papertrey Ink buttons in the right corner finish this card off.

So glad that you could take a moment to stop by for a visit! Try to stay warm and cozy! I'll see you all tomorrow...Toodles! :D

Well Love Bug--know what I like about your project--the best--it's that you did not use the same stitching for all three buttons--what a simple but great idea!
TFS it with us!
Hugs, Nola
