Neglected Nuggets of Gold

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS is Neglected Nuggets of Gold. It was to use stamps that haven't been used a long time. I have A LOT of those, unfortunately! Ladybug Picnic, however, is one that I absolutely LOVED at one time and couldn't put it down. Then, newer stuff came out and I got different ladybug stamps. . .and well, you know how that happens. Anyway, I dug this one out. I'm glad I did because I have a great picture of Arwen eating watermelon that I wanted to scrap using this set. Maybe now that it's out of the archives, I can do that! The layout for this card came from this weeks Sketch Challenge on SCS. I'm so behind on my challenges! Oh well, what can you do?

By the way, I wanted to thank you all so much for the Happy Birthday and Get Well wishes for Arwen. She is feeling MUCH better. She seems to be back to her normal self, and the fever seems to be under control. I am VERY relieved! I will have to post a couple pics of her birthday! She wasn't really interested so much in the ladybug cupcakes. She did stick her hand in the icing and wipe it all over her sister's face, so that was a priceless video that we captured! :) Have a great day and thanks for visiting! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Ladybug Picnic; Paper- Wild Asparagus; Ink- Basic Black, Rose Red, Going Grey, Gable Green, Green Galore; Accessories- Aquapainter, large oval punch, Giga Scallop Circle punch, Mega circle punch, paper piercer, ribbon from Doodliedoo.
