You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the drawing!!!

Here's what I came up with my many many scraps:

 Ladybug was cut at 8" using 'Just Because' Cards cartridge.
Because the images on this cart are for a card they will be porportional to a card size.
Which is why it was cut at 8".

ANYONE can enter this week!
My seven year old had a party to go to today.
I had already promised my kids I would take them swimming.
So I whipped this card out including getting the post ready in just over an hour!
I'm looking at the clock amazed myself!!
