Little Love Bugs

I've been enjoying my craft room this week.  With the cooler weather, the cats aren't exploding hair quite as much, which means I can procrastinate on my cleaning duties a little bit longer and play more with my stuff!!

I received a couple of super cute images from Sami at Sami Stamps (go check her shop out!!  So many adorable images :) )  Decided to put them to use this week as I just love them!
This card idea came together almost immediately when I saw the sketch at Some Odd Girl.  With the height of this little critter, I felt the layout worked perfect!  I paired up some scrap papers that looked good together and used my Silhouette to cut out the circle frame.

Watched a few tutorials on how to properly color a heart (cuz my first attempt was horrible), and colored everything up with my pencils!  Of course, I had to add some glitter with my Wink of Stella pen...I'm sad it's almost empty!

The sentiment is also from Sami Stamps and worked so perfect with this LoveBug1!  A few liquid pearls and some red gems and it was all done!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Crafty Cardmakers #100-Winged Things
    Send a Smile 4 Kids-Anything Goes
    Simon Says-Anything Goes
    Totally Gorjuss #202-Dotty
    Word Art Wednesday #99-Anything Goes

This next card didn't quite work out how I wanted...the papers looked great together when I was picking them out, and then once the whole thing was put together...not so much...
But I still like it :)  The image is LoveBug2, colored in with my pencils (and of course some glitter pen).  I used a spellbinders die for the frame, and cut out the heart banner from a Silhouette cut file.

The sentiment banner is from a stamp set that I won from Damask Love.  It worked perfectly layered on top of the hearts!

Once again, a few liquid pearls in the corner and it was done!  I love my liquid pearls. They are so much easier than normal pearls, and I can make them any size I want!  They usually end up on every card because the bottle is sitting right in front of me on my desk and (like my glitter pen) I just naturally reach for it :)

Anyhow!  I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
