Cricut Cardz Challenge #57

I had some free time today...being stuck in the house with all the icy roads and snow...no school and office closed...so I decided to lasso my 12yr old son, Caleb, into helping me with Cricut Cardz Challenge # 57.  At first, he was whining like my 2yr old and didn't want to.  However, once we started cutting this cute bug out....his whines turned to, "Ooo...she's so cute!" I have to agree...very happy with her.  I'm not sure I complied with the rules of the challenge, though...I just read that I was to use red, white, and black ONLY!...I added pink for the face and the black and white patterned paper have silver glitter specks.  Oh well!  I'll read better next time.
 We used my favorite Cricut cartridge...Create a Critter...You can't tell, but the red paper is glittery (because I love bling!).  Caleb wanted the little bug to have bows and dress (Wait, til I tell his friends about this...hee hee!).  Anyway, we did and I just love the result.  The dress is from the Teddy Bear character and the bows are from the Lamb on the same Critter cart.  I added a wavy lines (cut with the wavy Creative Memories cutter)...cut in the same sparkly red and black white papers. We were both inspired by our little Miss Ladybug, my daughter Michelle (2yr) who wore the costume for Halloween:

Glad he was able to spend time away from the video games!
