 Good Morning!

Today I am entering this cute card into the following Challenges:

Lawn Fawn, Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song
This card was inspired by the Yoo Hoo Lady Bug Book.
I have no idea how many times Penny and I have read this, but it is always fun.
It's about a little Lady Bug who hides amongst toys and household objects
throughout the pages.  Really cute!

 I used the Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets, Hey Lady.

The leaves can move as I added a brad to connect them.
This way Penny can search for the missing Lady Bugs.


There is nothing more rewarding than reading with or to a child!

yet every once in a while I do give it a shot!

Watched this VIDEO from Cards And Coffee Time

I used Martha Stewart Glitter, man does that stuff sparkle!

Foam Dots.
Mini Sequins.

A super FUN card to make.....even if it is a slimline lol
