Bug me anytime


This is another simple but super cute card. I used my Cricut to die cut the lady bug. If you have never seen that machine do its thing, it is pretty amazing. You push a couple of buttons, load some paper into the machine, sit back and let the machine do the work for you. I love it! I received it for Christmas last year from my dear husband, and still have yet to use all of its functions. For all of you fellow Cricut owners, what is your favorite and most used cartridge? I've been itching to get a couple of new cartridges, and I want to make sure I get ones that are gooood! Back to the card, I used the Hero Arts dotted circle to stamp the circles randomly on the white card base. I glued the ladybug onto the card, and stamped the sentiment underneath the ladybug. I added some sparkle to the dots of the ladybug with my Stardust black glitter pen, and some eyes with my Inkssentials white gel pen. Easy, peesy, but oh so cute! Well, I'm off to get on with the rest of my day. Like so many of my days these days, it will be busy busy busy (read bizzee, bizzee, bizzee)! Have a good one!

Ingredients:
Paper: SU white; Bazzil red, Bazzil black
Ink: SU real red; SU black; Stardust black glitter pen; Inssentials white
