I'm still here

I haven't forgotten about blogging. I have just been really busy the last week, I'll give you a quick re-cap:

Last Saturday we went to the Canada Day parade and then as soon as it was over (well almost-I had a couple of detours) we headed for NS. We arrived at mom and dad's at almost 10:00pm. Sunday we had a Birthday party for Emma and then went to the zoo after supper (I love that zoo!). Monday Joe and I went into Halifax to see the Tattoo (it was awesome!). Tuesday we went visiting most of the day and then Wednesday we headed back home. We were home for an hour and a half and then I left again to go to make jewlery at Dianne's. Thursday night was stamping class and then last night we had a stamping/going away party for Megan.

I don't have anything else going on until class Thursday night so you should see more posts from me over the next week. I will also go through my pictures and find a couple to share with you. Speaking of pictures, Walmart has 4x6 digital prints on for .15. I'm not sure how long it is on for but it is a really good price. I think I got 400 pictures printed over the last couple of days! That was only pictures from Easter until now and a few of Mom's pictures from Christmas. I really need to get scrapbooking.

I have a card that I did last week before we went away. I have seen the Pick a Petal stamp set used to make ladybugs on SCS a few times so I had to try it too.

The ladybugs wings are the polka dotted petal stamped in real red and cut out. Then I went around the outside of the petal with my black marker. The body is black cardstock punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch and the head is the 1/2" circle cut in half. I free-handed the antena and dots behind.
The bottom is done with the slit punch and then I punched holes in the scallops and used my white gel pen to hi-light the scallops.
I just love the black, white and red together.

Karen,
You rock! love this card, I too saw the lady bugs but hadn't attempted them. And the scalloped edge, I did this a couple of days ago but mine isn't near as nice as yours. You are one creative chick!
