Lady Bug Hugs

     I'm trying to get a few Valentine cards done and when I saw this new set from Doodle Pantry, called "Lady Bug Hugs," I couldn't resist using one of the images and one of the sentiments.

     Very quick and simple card since I used a pre-colored version of the image and cut it with a die from QuicKutz.  I also printed and cut the sentiment with a smaller die from that same set.  The die cut image I matted with a scrap square of red CS and I added both pieces to a black card front.  The polka dot ribbon is wrapped and tied with a square knot, then I used the last scrap of that ribbon to make the 'bow' which I adhered with ribbon glue.  

     The entire thing took me exactly 15 minutes to put together.  My friend, Lynn, would call this a "git 'er done" card.  :-D  I love that expression!

     Below is a photo of the entire set and don't forget that we have challenge going this month, too, with a theme of "dairy."  You can read all the details about the challenge by clicking right here.  Meanwhile, Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
