Happy Valentine's Ladybug!

Hello everyone! Christmas is in 2 days! Are you ready? finished shopping? mailed Christmas cards? gifts wrapped? The answers for me are yes, yes, yes and yes! The girls are getting pictures made today and then we are done! Since I am done and since my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary yesterday, I thought I would make a Valentine's card! I'll post the anniversary card I made in a few days. You will not want to miss it!

First I thought I would try a 6x6 card. I had not done one this size before but after it was finished I decided I really like that size. Hmmm..I see more of those in the future. For my card I used a digital image from Deedee's Digis called "Love Bug". I also used the words from "Love You Beary Much" (which by the way is the gift with purchase set for this month).

The sketch is from The Sweet Stop and they added a twist to their challenge by asking us to use stitching. I stitched the polka dot dp to the floral dp and also stitched the ribbon which you can see below. Stitching on my cards is another thing I haven't done much but really liked it.

I finished the inside with the sentiment from the Love Bug set and some dp.

stamp: Deedee's Digis
paper: SU, black cs, HL (base)
other: ribbon - M's, chipboard heart, Spellbinders dies, CM cutting system, dimensionals, stitching

It's so cute, Ilove to use that size too, it leaves more space for all the embellies.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
