An especially exciting Thursday!

Hello and a very happy day to you!
I am so excited to do a double post here and on the Inktegrity blog where I have released the Ladybugs. :D
I wanted to share a couple of cards that I made here as the Design Team RULED the other blog. I couldn't even think of putting my stuff near theirs. ;) lol!
My cards:


Using Hi (Oh, I am so creative with the names, aren't I? heehee!) I created a card for two different sites. First off, The Pink Elephant's latest recipe challenge:
3 brads
1 DP
1 prima
This was such a fun card to make as I was seeing polka dots everywhere! Isn't this sketch adorable? It is the latest challenge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I flipped it on its side and since there was already a sentiment, I used the prima for the added element.
And finally, the 5th of the new releases:

I never thought that I'd catch this...

Lovebug again.
LOL! This is pretty much the way I feel about my DH of 15 years. heehee! I absolutely love this Jonas Brothers song, and wanted to make something to commemorate this time when my daughter is all about music and innocent teen star crushes.

The car is paper pieced with fun DP. I discovered (by accident, I will admit) that this works perfectly if you want to put a larger image on a smaller nestie. This way the DP still carries the image off the frame. Does that make sense? :D

The store is now open HERE. And if you are ready for more fabulous samples and to see the other 3 images that are being released today, please click HERE to go visit the Inktegrity blog. Otherwise, have an incredible Thursday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*

Adorable! Love how you highlighted the ladybug's back... great idea as it gives it dimension. And it looks like you made the magnify glass bigger? That is an awesome touch!
