Heard You Caught A Bug


This card was was created using three Heartfelt Creations stamp sets and matching dies all purchased from Joan's Gardens.  I love these little lady bugs and thought this would make a cute card for someone that isn't feeling well.

The designer paper was pulled from my "scrap" box and I don't know the company.  It was layered onto a piece of black card stock.  The lady bugs and verse are from the Heartfelt Creations "Simple Filler Stems" stamp set.  They were stamped with VersaMark ink and black embossed.  The flowers are from the "Daisy Patch Flowers" stamp set and cut out with matching dies.  I layered three of the larger flowers and added one smaller flower on top of them.  Flower Soft was added for the center.  Each layer is attached with dimensionals.  The HFC leaves were stamped on green card stock and cut out with the matching dies then tucked under the flower.   

The lady bugs were stamped on a wide piece of red card stock then three score lines drawn under the bugs.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create a flower border along the bottom of this strip.   A strip of black card stock was added along the top then a black marker used to draw in the stitch marks.  

A cute red grosgrain bow, with black polka dots, was added above the greeting and five black rhinestones added along the punched border.

We had a wonderful time with our son and it was sad to take him back to the airport.  We did lots of fun things and ate way too much great food.

Thanks for stopping by.

So glad you had fun with your son. I really like this card. I may just have to look for that set to get the ladybug and saying.

Selma, thanks for the beautiful card and I'm so happy to see that you are back. I know how you feel about leaving your son. I feel the same way when I leave my kids and grandkids back in Maine. I don't usually see them again for a year. I have two great grandchildren now to. One boy 3 months and one girl 5 years who just started school.

One of your fans,

Joan Plummer
