Ladybugs --

It is all about the ladybugs!  Or at least for me.
My father in law & I use to have a little something between us when it came to ladybugs.  When my husband & I first moved into our house 15 years ago during Labor Day weekend, our house was covered in these orange ladybugs.  It drove me crazy because they found there way into our house & I am one that believes bugs, of any kind, belong outside.  Isn't that what screens are all about?  So each year when it would get closer to Labor Day, my father in law would call me as soon as he would see that first orange ladybug at his house.  And say to me "They are BACK"!   Now every time I see a ladybug of any sort, I think of him.

So, when I saw this digital design, Scene It - Ladybugs, by Bugaboo Digital Stamps , I knew it was one I would treasure.

And even better I made this card for a challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Blog.
 The theme is green & purple color challenge.  

 Operation Write Home Organization is a treasured organization.  They provide card makers, like myself, the chance to make cards for our overseas troops to send homemade cards back home to their family & friends.    You can go to their website & check out all the wonderful work they have accomplished.

I colored the design using Copics, Spicas & Gel Pens
Printed Paper, Paper Heart
Edge Die Cut, My Favorite Things
Tag Die Cut, Memory Box
Text stamp, life's simple pleasures, A Muse Stamps
