The Stamp Fairy Challenge entry & Cute Card Thursday

I am entering this card into The Stamp Fairy Challenge this week - it is a sketch and a really neat one! I had fun with this! I used Lemon Tart CS (PTI) and the DP is from Nana's Kids paper pack (DCWV). I used Lenny Ladybug and coloured him with Copics (his lady bug spots ARE really purple...its really hard to tell!!!). The ribbon is from my scraps and the flowers and gems are from my stash! The sentiment is from an old SU set! So....I got my card in the Top 3 the last 2 weeks...maybe third week is a charm!!! Keep your fingers crossed for me!!!! I am SO in love with Gerda's images, I can't get enough of them!!! I love them so much, I am using Lenny Ladybug (all 5 of them) for baby Thank you cards that my friend has asked me to make - 75 of them!!!!! I MUST REALLY LOVE LENNY!!! LOL

I am also entering this into the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is Tropical! THANKS for the heads up Deb!!! :)

Have a GREAT weekend!!!! I have a busy one but I get to spend time with the family!

Hugs, Chris
