Dilly Beans: Dots!

Hello friends - happy Friday and happy birthday to my husband Jeremy!  He's one year older today, but one year younger than he thought he was.  hee hee  We have a fun weekend planned with going out to dinner tonight and then a cookout tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to it - it's so nice living in California and never having to "hope" it's going to be nice out for a cookout.  It's nice enough for a cookout 95% of the time.  LOL  Have I mentioned that I love it here?  :)

I am super excited to tell you all that we bought our very first brand-spankin'-new car the other day!  Fresh off the lot with 15 miles on it - a 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid.  OMG this thing is so cool.  The technology is just amazing now - it's so much fun to link up your smart phone and be able to use Pandora and all of the fun apps... answer your phone or change radio stations with a push of a button on the steering wheel... I felt like a movie star.  hee hee  Wanna see it?  Here she is:

Isn't she pretty???  :)

OK so let's get down to business - I've been super busy lately and was so glad I caught up with all of May's projects before I left for my vacation, because I just have not had any time to sit and craft since I got home. And I had no luck finding my printer cable the other day, so I'm off this morning to go buy a new one.  I'm definitely missing my crafty time and I cannot wait to print out a bunch of images and get coloring!  For today, we have a new challenge for you at:

I am also entering this into the:


I used 223 - Ladybug Fairy, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits with some Stickles on her wings.  I paired her with this fun polka dot digi paper and a polka dot ribbon from my stash.  Added some ladybug embellies and the little beaded letters.  Come play along with us!  Peace.
