W.I.P. Ladybug, Ladybug...Don't Fly Away...Cuddly Cute, Stay All Day!

Here's a Sunday Sketches - Sneak Peek of the latest mini in my "Hat Tricks" collection! A cuddly cute Ladybug friend that inspired a silly ladybug hat befitting of a big eyed girl!
It was tough to decide which hat to do next with so many awesome suggestions from my friends on Twitter, Facebook and in The Hive, but this one just sort of flew in the window and I thought it must be a sign! hehehe!
Here's a couple more pix for good measure...cuddly cute lady love bug!
And I even got a few "POPS" of color started!
A big thanks to everyone that has made suggestions for fun hats to include in this collection!  I have a list that is growing by leaps and bounds...polar bears, rabbits, puppies, koalas, and even a llama are just a few of the fun ideas tossed into the air!  I've got sketch ideas in my head and hopefully they'll all make it to paper soon! 
Keep 'em coming!
Now back to the drawing board for more coloring fun!

Shared over at Sunday Sketches! Be sure to pop by and check out all of the amazing sketches and creative creations...and join in the fun too!
