Not your ordinary firefly!

Good Saturday morning! It's taken me all week to finish another card! This one is for all of us (me included) who haven't felt very good this week! Hope you're feeling better!! I sat on the couch in the evenings coloring this week and after I saw Anna Wight's card I just had to watercolor her Whipper Snapper bug like she did! I love, love, love him/her!! So this morning I decided I HAD to get this bug made into a card. I wanted to pull in the aqua and green that I had water colored with so chose this Basic Grey paper from Urban Prairie. Lookie!! It has grey ladybugs on it! You can only see one on my card, but it's like a theme!
And, this, of course, is a close up of the coloring. I think I will get brave next time and cover the whole image with Crystal Effects to make the jar glassy!
Oh yeah, the sentiment is from High Hopes. Perfect for this, huh?
Thanks for visiting today! I'll try to get more cards done for this upcoming week's posts. We've had more snow here so won't venture out too far, just to a Super Bowl party tomorrow. I {{heart}} being home!
Hope your Saturday is one with fun! Cheryl

I loved this bug, too, when I saw it on her blog! It's on my wishlist! Great dp for this card, too! Sorry to hear you've been sick...so have I! I was home Wednesday and Thursday with bronchitis! I only went in on Friday to correct the ELA exams! Feeling better today...hope you are too! Happy Super Bowl!
