This ladybug smells.

Ladybugs don't normally smell.  This one, however, was colored with a raspberry scented crayola marker.  Hence, it smells.  I don't even know the origin of that marker, or how it got in my craft stuff, but it was there, I used it and the ladybug smells.
The rest of this Bugaboo digi stamp was colored with normal, unsmelly markers, with the exception of the bear.  He was colored with pencils blended with Gamsol.  The sentiment frame and words are CTMH stamps.

By the way,
Happy St, Patrick's Day!

We had a quick moving storm pass through earlier today followed by bright sunshine and a gorgeous double rainbow.
How fitting for St. Patrick's Day and confusing for the leprechauns. 

Today, I am entering these challenges:
