So I started from scratch, well sort of….
a while ago I made this little ladybug
Fullscreen capture 452013 22401 PM
I had it in another quilt so I figured I’d move it over to be in MY LIBRARY
so I copied it
Fullscreen capture 452013 22501 PM
then under my library I created a new name for the “style” – Animals and pasted it in there
Fullscreen capture 452013 22520 PM
Here’s the ladybug in LARGE
of course again I had to add eyes

This was the first try at the ladybug face, I thought it was OUT too much

Lady bugs, such a useful bug in our lifetime. They just released 72,000 in the Mall of America so they wouldn't have to use harmful pesticides. They can eat all the harmful bugs that eat the plants. Ok anyway, We love ladybugs, called my daughter that for a long time. Love to win, Thanks for the chance.
