Red hot Red!

Good morning everyone! First thing I want to remind everyone of Kerrys blog candy. She is adding stuff everyday and when she hits 200 followers someone is gonna win big! Her link is on the side so hop over and check her out, she makes me laugh everytime I visit. And today it is Tuesday which means a new challenge at Totally Ladybug Tuesday (and it is almost Wednesday which is my favorite day cause it means I am off!  The challenge Ladybug Crafts this week was chosen by Gaelle and  is to use red on your card. How hard is that? I LOVE red but my mojo was seriously missing due to working all weekend and the last 3 nights, so my brain is fried but I managed to make up a little sumpin sumpin.

The black polka dot paper I printed out on my computer and the yellow dp is from October Afternoon. 
I am not wild about the felt flower but since I had already tried a ton of other embellishments and didn't like them either I went with it. I will say that the flower cut beautifully with the felt I got from LCI. If you are looking for a good quality felt that is the place to go, cuts like a dream, no little fibers that don't cut thru or shred. Love it! Alright everyone, your turn to join in for a chance to win a free stamp or be one of the top three and get to post a LCI challenge top pick banner on your blog.
