It's been a really long time since I used stickers and doodling to make a card....made me think back to the time when we used decorative scissors and glue sticks too, :)  It was actually kind of fun to create and sure was easy to make. Seems like cards are a lot more work these days, like little LO's, so this was rather refreshing.

( I did alter the Prima flower a little bit, I removed the pearl and replaced it with the yellow gem so that it would match better to the flowers on the sticker border. )

Prima - flower
EK Success - gem sticker

I never get these answers, lol I think I am brain dead! ;)
 
The answer is:
 
paltry
( inferior, trivial )

Confession time Sandee...yep you guessed it...I cheated! (Gasp)
My brain just happens to be mush at the moment from overdosing on that wicked stuff called chocolate.
(By the way hope you had a great Easter...I'm seriously comtemplating elasticated troos)

It's been ages since I called around to your place. I now realise that something is wrong because although I'm a follower I don't get to see your posts unless I remember and physically visit!
So I've got a lot to catch up on... ;D
Love that little bug...he's the cutest bug I've ever seen! The sentiment is so perfect too.
Clever you :D

Hi Sandee, I didn't work it out either - far too early in the morning here for my brain to be warmed up but your card did make me smile, it is very pretty! Hugs, Anne x

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements. Good luck!

I am happy to note that no matter where we are in the world, our Mum's have all occasionally given us a kick up the rear....

Love the little touches of red on the card, they really lift it.

So adorable! Something sweet about ladybugs! I had to add them to my card the other day! I love how you used your doodling around the card, such a great look. You keep me on my toes with your quizzes too, I didn't get this one, but when I saw the answer the "light" came on. ha

I put some alpha stickers on a book page today and before I could get it scanned, somewhere between my craft room and office, I lost one of the stickers. Now I know why I hate stickers. But I agree that cards made by card makers now days are usually over the top.

And I'm still stuck in that decorative scissors and glue stick era.

My memory stinks :( I couldn't get paltry!

But your card doesn't stink - it rocks! I love the doodling and the ladybug.
