LuvBug for Kerri

Hello Stampin' Friends and Happy Thursday!  Today is my day off and I have high hopes of crossing a few projects off of my crafting To-Do list...this list seems to be growing at a rapid rate and I LOVE it!  I plan to take full advantage of nap time and bed time today.
A few weeks ago I made a cute pink polka dot "slug bug" card for a Friday Mashup Challenge and when my friend Kerri saw it, she asked me to make her a card to match her green LuvBug.  I had a lot of fun making the first card and was happy to make a second one.  I checked out a few of my favorite challenge blogs for a little inspiration and loved the color challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
 Pear Pizzazz is a perfect match to Kerri's bug and the Crushed Curry and Early Espresso reminded me of all the sunflowers that are in bloom right now.  So, there you have inspiration for this card :-)  Not only is Kerri a good friend, she is also my co-worker who helped cover my duties while I was on vacation, so I owe her a HUGE thank you!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Brushed Silver, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink ~ Pear Pizzazz, Crushed Curry
Stamps ~ Lots of Thanks
Other Supplies ~ Build a Banner Stencils, Boho Blossoms Punch, Artisan Label Punch, 1" Square Punch, Large Oval Punch, Extra Large Oval Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Neutrals Brads
The kiddos and I are off to go have some breakfast at our favorite coffee shop this morning and then we'll hand deliver this card to {Auntie} Kerri and visit with her new puppy Wiffle :-)
Happy Stamping!
