Cute as a bug...a "Sassy" bug, that is!

Happy Tuesday, my "sassy" friends!! Hope you had a great week...and are looking forward to another fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's! And, for those of my sweet and sassy friends who haven't yet played in Sassy Cheryl's Challenge...whatcha waitin' for? It's such fun! And Cheryl has some of the cutest images...check 'em out HERE. I promise you, you won't be disappointed!

So...once again, this week's "hostess with the mostest" is my talented, Design Teamie, Jeni!! Jeni's theme for this week's challenge is...

What's buggin' you?

Isn't that such fun? And, believe me what I tell ya, Sassy Cheryl has lots of adorable images that are just perfect for this week's challenge!!

Now...I've always loved ladybugs...so, of course, I just had to get "Ladybug Follow the Leader"  from Sassy Cheryl's Digis for my card this week! Talk about whimsical! hehehe!! And, I took "whimsical" to a whole new level...that's right...to the "hot pink and lime green ladybug" level!! LOL! What'cha think?


I rummaged through my "scrap box" for some funky DPs that I thought would be perfect for this funky little card!! I used my Martha Stewart ladybug punch to jazz up some of the edges...and added some fun flowers, ribbon, ruffles, and pink diamonds (all from my stash!!).


I sort of went nuts with my camera!! hehehe!!


The sentiments (inside and out) are from Stampin' Up. I added some pockets...one for a little notecard...and another that would be perfect for a little "gift card"!


Here's a list of the Copics I used to color this little darlin'...

E21, 00, 000: Skin
R20: Cheeks
E25, 23, 21: Hair
RV04, 02, 00, 10: Pinks

And, one more for good measure...

Yep, it's time to pop on over to Sassy Chery's Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous work by Jeni and the rest of my delightfully talented DT sistahs!! Then pull out your own craft supplies and choose one (or more, if you like) of Sassy Cheryl's images (You can find them at Sassy Cheryl's Digis HERE) and get busy creating your own paper masterpiece using Jeni's theme for this week...
