Happy Monday Bloggers!
Today's challenge at Squigglefly is 'The Earth Laughs in Flowers'!
I can hardly wait for my flower beds to start laughing their little heads off! LOL!
Would you believe I've had spring bulbs pop up out o the ground about 3" only to be FROZEN with the last two snow storms and frigid temperatures! Poor little things!!
Anyways ... here's my card for today using an adorable image called
"Pigtail Gabby" by artist Cheryl Grant Alger
I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring and the background paper is from the First Edition Papers 'Love Letters' that I won recently at Classy Cards n Such (thanks Beverly).
Did you notice the ladybug on the little girls shirt?
Well I thought I needed a few ladybugs around this cluster of Petaloo & Darice flowers too ...
SO ... I got out my Sizzix 'Susan's Garden' Ladybug kit and made up
about a dozen of them that I have stored now in a little jar to use
on all my upcoming spring/summer creations!
After all, if you have lady bugs in your house you know they show up EVERYWHERE ...
ALL SUMMER LONG!
So expect to see more on my cards with flowers! LOL!
Here's a closeup ...
