Don't Look Now, but I Made a Card!!!!

Yay!!! It is so good to be back. Although I've been having a wonderful summer with my family- We have been very busy traveling, reading, walking, driving (my ds has his permit), and picnic-ing, I have missed my studio and crafting very much. It was nice to be back last night and make this card using a sketch from Meslissa's blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches. She is having a big celebration this week in honor of her 1st anniversary/birthday! She challenged card making readers to use a sketch from her archives, so I chose to use TMS #13 for my card this week, but she added a twist: use something that reminds you of summer! I was in need of a thank you card, so I made this ladybug card using stamps from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF. The ladybug is from the DOODLEFLOWERS set, and the sentiment is from the ALL AROUND PHRASES set. (The small stamped flower is studio g.) It was easy to put together using Melissa's sketch. I added Rock Candy Stickles to the daisy centers and bee wings on the pp and then to the ladybug spots and the stamped flower center. Done!
