Today is my day to post over at the 2 Cute blog and this is my project... dreaming ladybugs!
I'm also using this card for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant- mushy, gushy Valentines. I love this little saying, "I sleep with a smile because I see you in my dreams," perfect for anytime you want to send your sweetie a little "pick-me-up!" Not just for Valentine's Day, think anniversary, or stick in a bag when your hubby leaves town!
A closer look...
The card base is actually grey, but shows up darker in the picture. I used some new paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, plaid on one side, hearts on the other. The red polka dot is from my stash (it's super old) and folded to pleat the paper. I attached two buttons at the ends and attached my heart with foam tape to make it pop. The edges are inked in charcoal chalk ink and the ladybugs are colored with my Copics.
I used the sleepy ladybug stamp from 2 Cute, but used the digi image. I flipped one of the two so they would be facing each other. Digi images are cool like that- so versatile!
My best craft buddy, Elizabeth, came over yesterday and showed Anna and I how to make clay buttons! We sat at the kitchen table for 4-5 hours creating some unique beauties- can't wait to show you!
Enjoy your weekend, and hope you get some craft time in!
