365 Lady Bug Style

Hey y'all!! Another monday morning and things are starting out right. I decided after doing so many different challenges last week, that I would actually do ALL of the 365 Card challenges instead and try to slip in a few different ones here and there. So todays challenge at 365 Cards is all about the ladybug. We are supposed to use it as inspiration and also to think outside the box.
Well, I didn't want to just put a ladybug on my card, so this is what I came up with:

It is so simple, you might be bored. But when I googled "ladybug images" I got a lot of green green leaves with little bugs on them. So that was my inspiration. And you know, sending hugs sounds  a lot like 'lady bugs', so I went with it.

On another note, I am so astonished that it's almost April. Wha? WHA?? Where did good 'ol March go? And why did we have a hail storm last night? I just don't get it. Really.

Anyway. Enough ramblings today. Patrick took the day off today to make up for the emergency trip to Vancouver last week (right when we were to close on our house... ask me later for the full story) It was SO stressful, so we are looking forward to a day playing with the kids. Hope the weather cooperates. 

Have a great Monday everybody! And check out 365 Cards to see what Gloria has in store for you. It's sure to be fabulous!

Love it, Kristie! That green is striking and love the simplicity of it (but it's not boring at all!!). Yeah, we had that hail storm last night too - crazy!! Guess that means spring is on it's way though!
