Cute as a Bug

If I couldn't make a card here and there this week I would be crying .... I try only to think of the wedding and everything being beautiful.... but not of Madison and Cory moving all the way to Memphis!!!.... this is a Vicki/Jeannie challenge...I chatted with her this morning and said lets make a card...neither of us could pick a I gave Madison the Home Decor pamphlet and said pick one.... I should have known she would pick the ladybug ... she loves them...and she said we had to add glitter... I don't do glitter often Madison says I should use it on every card.... so challenged Vicki and she was up to it... I took a nap first and dreamed about this here it is!!...inside it says "Madison, when you were born you were cute as a bug... on Saturday you will be the most beautiful bride on earth." .... yes yes I am crying now!!.... I hope that you like it...and I know that you will love Vicki's, she does beautiful work... Thanks so much for looking... I cherish your comments more than you know!! ...Its like I tell my boss at work... "I work on a need to know basis...I need to know you think I am doing good!" Hugs, Jeannie
Home Decor
Ladybug cut @ 5 3/4 inches 5 times.
I cut it twice on regular cut in black... one I cut the dots out of so that I could add the glitter and pop-dot it from the black cut below... I ran the dots upside down through my Zyron to add the glitter ....I cut the ladybug once in red on shadow blackout...and once in white and grey on shadow.
I don't have design studio so on the white piece of paper I scored it just behind the legs from side to side and adhered it only above the score line so it would open.
Charm cut @ 2 inches in red.
I like this little charm I think I will use it more often!!...measured it and did my text on the computer in a box around the text 1/4 shorter on both horizontal and vertical sides... trimmed with scissors just outside the box... adhered to the charm.

Oh Jeannie, this is such a cute card! I love the glitter so Madison was right saying you should use it more often. I love the little bow and you´ve drawn the face so beautifully.
Saturday will be a wonderful day so enjoy it, not thinking about what will come next. You´ll be the proudest mom around!

Jeannie, I stumbled across your blog on the cricut site the other day. I've really enjoyed looking at your cards, and this one is ADORABLE! I can totally understand your feelings this week - I have twin boys who are only 11, but already I'm sad at how fast they grow up.
