Blinged Out Valentine Bug

Last weekend my son, DIL, and sweet little granddaughter were here (probably to get their Christmas presents!!!  Yikes) and I got to spend quite a lot of time with them.  Madeline will be turning two next week so she's all legs in motion!   She started getting a little bored playing with the same toys so I went back in the craft room and got a package of dimensional ladybug stickers that I'd never used.   She had ladybugs stuck on her - and all over the house!  FUN stuff!




After seeing the inspiration challenge at The Alley Way Stamps, I knew I'd have to make a ladybug card for her and enter this in their challenge.  I love the yummy colors in that photo - vanilla, red, and pink.    I used a free image and sentiment  from The Alley Way Stamps and an old Retro Sketches sketch.  The DP is actually vanilla but looks closer to white in photo.  Think this will make a cute Valentine for little Madeline.

Thanks for stopping by..........and I'll be back around soon.

OK, this is just too cute, and I'd love to see Madeline's face when she opens it. I bet she is going to light up. LUV the colors used, and the little bit of bling is perfect!

Aww, ladybugs are always cute, especially on cards! Sweet little Madeline will love getting this in the mail! I'm glad you got to spend some quality time with her - even if you're still probably pulling ladybug stickers off of every surface :) 2 is an adorable age :)

Hello lovely friend. I've been among the missing but pop in from time to time.
Work is crazy busy and I don't know about you but once I am away from my crafty bubble - I feel like I don't have the mojo or muse to pull of making a card!
This is adorable. What a cute as a bug take on the interest. I don't have even ONE Valentine card made. Yours is so sweet!
Stickers and two year olds - what a fabulous combination! A little ladybug with ladybug stickers - great image in my head.
Love that ribbon!!!

I am a big fan of ladybugs so I love this card. The layout is very nice and the CAS style is always a winner with me. I have some ladybug stickers too which Aleeza keeps wanting but I am hoarding them for my cards. Lol.
Thanks for the reminder, I may use them on my cards now for Valentine's.
Love,
M
