Ladybug Hugs for Mojo Monday

I have been so super busy that I had little time to play this weekend, but with my coffee in hand this morning I made up a couple of cards for some challenges. I have to say that making cards is a definite stress reliever for me. I use up my scraps . . . I get to play, and cards can be done in small spans of time which is all I have lately.

So last year I had scraps of this lady bug paper left from a project, and it seemed perfect for a Spring card. With the Mojo Monday sketch in hand, I went to work.

The sketch (which I love) . . .

My design outside (ladybug made from punches and paper) . . .

My design inside (the bug moves as you open it to reveal the "Ladybug Hugs" sentiment . . .

I love black, pink and white . . . and I love ladybugs when they're on paper. In general, they're cute little bugs until they invade your crop room . . . which they did two years ago (I still find the dead ones now and then in a container of paper, a drawer of ribbon, etc.). I can assure you the ones on this card are paper only.

Those crazy little bugs!
