I have been a HUGE FAN of Melissa’s gorgeous, shabby creations for many years — I’ve had the pleasure of sharing her work for The Shabby Tea Room several times and am tickled {pink} that she was able to make some time in her busy schedule to work her magic with some goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique!!

papersweeties-jerithomas

Aren’t those little bugs the cutest … and I LOVE the jumbo words!!  So, here’s a little card I created using some of the new goodies …

Little Miss Abigail is sweet as can be dressed in her adorable ladybug outfit!  I stamped the background paper using the *NEW* Bee Happy set and the cutest ladybug around!  All the coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol!
