Ladybug Painting

Well, I did it.  I bought a ticket to Boston last night for July 30.  But I'm not telling my mom, so keep it on the downlow.  LOL  I will be coming back with Cass on August 13, so it'll be a 2 week visit.  I really hope I can help while I'm there.  My sister and I have birthdays 3 days apart the first week in August, so I'm excited that I'll get to be there for that.  Last year, that was one of the only weeks that I felt truly homesick so I know it will help being home with my sister this year.  I'm looking forward to it now.  Maybe I'll even get to squeeze in a beach trip with one of my friends.  We shall see.  I know one thing, I'm going to be a busy girl the next week and a half, trying to prepare to be gone for that long.  I don't care, it's worth it.  :)

Today I have a card for the:

I colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and kept the layout simple.  I had this old ladybug paper in my stash, so I applied a piece in a diagonal direction and then attached the ladybug image with dimensional dots.  I attached a small ribbon tag, some black pearl stickers, and some little ladybug embellies.  Then I misted the whole thing with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz (trying to cover up a boo-boo, actually).  I added some Black Diamond Stickles to her paintbrush, as well as to the black spots on her back and the black spots she's painting on the flowers.  Peace.


  1. Glad you're all set with your plans, Chickie! Now you can relax (except for your frenzy of crating. LOL) Catching up on your fabulous work. You're always such a great inspiration (and not only in crafting.) xxD

  2. Just great ! Love all the little ladybugs you´ve added.
