Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I have a fun little card today using Try Stampin’ – Or Not -On Tuesday’s sketch for this week!  Here it is:

This sketch is particularly meaningful because it’s my first day on the Try Stampin’ - Or Not - on Tuesday DT!  I have played with their sketches almost every week, so I am happy to be a part of their team!  And I hope you’ll play along with their sketches, and check out their Facebook Page as well!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Try Stampin on Tuesday 218 Lady Bug Birthday Sweet Stuff Stampin Up!
I have a confession…this paper is one of the first papers I ever bought when I began stamping!  It’s probably at least 15 years old!  I guess I might have been hoarding it…what do you think?  Anyway, I did cut into it and I am glad I did!  The gingham panel was stamped in Daffodil Delight with a Papertrey Gingham Basics stamp, and overstamped with a sentiment from Sweet Stuff.
I punched out some daisies and a made a ladybug with a couple of circle punches and the dots from Festival of Trees, hand-drawing the antennae:

I think this is such a happy creation!  And I hope you’ll play along!
We had a lovely Mother’s Day on Sunday, probably the nicest one I’ve ever had!  My extremely creative daughter crocheted a big basket for me, and I wish I could capture it better in my photos, maybe I’ll try again later and take it outside, but here it is:
Not only did she teach herself to crochet, she made up this pattern all by herself!  So impressed!  I have LOTS of yarn that I can fit in here!
Enjoy your day!
