365 Cards Days 321 & 322

365 Cards Day 321: In Stitches
Now I know we've had a stitching challenge before, but this one will likely prove to be a bit more challenging...
The challenge is to stitch on an image to create texture. The image can come from a stamp or patterned paper. It doesn't count if you use something that is already stitched ;)
**I do believe Pam is refering to when I used pre-made quilled butterfly's! LOL**

I stitched (with Q's help!) the cute little lady bug's antini (sp?)
This is a soon to be released digi from Simple Doodles. I can see lots on cards being made with this sweet little image :)
I paper pieced her (are the males called "lady bugs"?? lol) with making memories paper, ek corner punch, bloom from paper blooms, rhinestones for eyes and the ends of antini, swiss dots cb folder.

365 Cards Day 322: Girls' Night Out.
The theme for this challenge is Girls' Night Out, and it doesn't have to be an invitation per se, but your card should be inspired by this theme.

I am so short on time so I colored the image!! And now you all see why I paper piece instead of coloring!! LOL This digi from In Style Stamps was perfect :) unknown paper and ribbon is by Pebbles Inc.

one of my daycare kids used to refer to the ones he decided were boys as lady dudes...(dude dude dude dude looks like a lady.... singing in my best steven tyler/aerosmith voice *grins*) )
