Hello, Ladybug!

Challenges. I want to do more of them. It can be hard to fit them in between DT assignments and everything else, but the truth of the matter is, I love them and I want to do them for ME! So...today, I present to you a challenge card! YAY!

I decided to go with the Take Three Challenge over at Less is More for this one. I love clean and simple cards, you guys know that, and the thought of combining three challenges in ONE clean and simple card is just TOO much fun to pass up! So...here is my card!

Hello Ladybug


ACK! Is that ladybug not just the cutest EVER???? He is a Stampendous! stamp and he comes in both wood and cling! I know the wood is available at Michael's, too, so a great way to use that coupon! The sentiment comes from the fabulous Happy Messages Perfectly Clear Stamp Set (also available at Michael's and online). This is one of my favorite sentiment sets! The fonts are nice, clean, and perfect! I colored him with Tombow markers and added just a touch of extra red by punching circles from a scrap of cardstock and adhering them with my Xyron X.

Hello Detail


The three challenges I pulled from LIM are the #47 Just One Word Challenge, the #55 Punches or Die Cuts challenge, and the #56 Don't Scrap It challenge. My one word sentiment, five, simple punched circles, and the scrap used to punch them from came together in a super fun little CAS card! Love that!

I have to tell you...I'm a little surprised that it is only Thursday today. I mean...shouldn't we have hit Friday by now? HA! Oh, well, tomorrow shall come. In the meantime, I think I shall sip my tea and attempt to have a productive day. OH! If you get a chance head on over to the May Arts blog! We have partnered with Sweet Stamp Shop and there are lots of fun projects and giveaways including my own set of three cards! Check them out!

Happy Thursday, folks!

Jingle Out!
