None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Lucky Little Ladybug

Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.
Quoted by Lewis Grizzard inKathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You

Good Morning! 
Spring is right around the corner.
March 20th to be exact!

Such bizarre weather this winter season.
Unseasonably hot or cold depending on the region.
Record snow or rain fall. 
Living where I do, we don't deal with snow, but it does get cold so I'm ready for the smell of fresh cut green grass and the bright splashes of pretty flowers! Spring for us is such a short time period where we can shake off the sloth of winter, enjoy the outdoors without the fear of heat stroke and mentally prepare ourselves for the hot Summer months to come. :O)

Today is my turn to post the new Clean and Simple Challenge for the Outlawz.

Here is Arizona, a slight chill is still in the air, but if you pay attention, so is Spring!
I love to see Ladybugs, those little black and red harbingers of Spring flitting around.
This week we want you to show us your lovely lady bugs! 
all colors, all sizes - just keep it CAS!

Come on by to see what the rest of the DT have done!

Here is my card for the challenge!
The white card stock is embossed using a diffuser which left a circle untouched.
I fussy cut Ms. Ladybug and colored her up with a watercolor pencil and blender pen and added her, the heart and banner to non-embossed part with dimensional foam.
