Ladybug Kaela

I had so much fun making this bag! The other day, when I was wandering in blogland, I saw where someone used a "playing card" on their birthday project. How fun is that? There are so many neat ideas out there, I hardly have time to do those important sleep.

The challenge @ Card Ideas is called "kidding around". Make a card/project for a young child. For my project, I used Ladybug Kaela by Designed2Delight. I colored her with Copics & then, cut out just the outside edge of her legs. Then, I put the image in my 2-1/2" Circle punch & punched the rest of the image out. For the 2nd circle, I used my handy dandy jar lid! :) For the 3rd circle, I used SU!'s Scallop Circle #2 Die. I learned how to make a simple bow yesterday (see 3-8-11 post). I have always struggled with bows & still do, but this method sure helps!
I am entering my project @ Craft Your Passion Challenges- anything goes
Thanks for stoppin'!....b.
