A bug... Just for You!

I'm still recovering from the Keith Urban concert from Tuesday. I remember going out on a Thursday night before and getting home after 2AM and can still function the following day to go to work and then go out again Friday and Saturday night. Oh, how I wish I can do the same things I used to do...LOL!


Okay, not a bug... how about a flower just for you? Both main image and sentiment is from Whipper Snapper Design. Main image is called Flower Bug and was stamped on Whisper White card stock with Jet Black Staz-on ink, water-colored using Certainly Celery and Basic Black ink. This cute lady bug did not have dots but I added black dots by using a small pencil top eraser. I then punched it using Marvy Oval mega punch and layered it with Basic Black card stock punched with Marvy Oval Scallop Giga punch and raised it with stampin' dimensional. Both patterned paper is from Stampin' Up Certainly Celery Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from Just for You Cat stamp. I finished the card by adding black sheer polka dot ribbon and the flower rhinestone that I got from Michael's.

Speaking of Michael's... on our way to see Keith Urban, we stopped by there and got some good stuff for my very first blog candy. I was planning to give one right after I hit my 10 thousandth hit but I didn't realize that I have way passed that... so, stay tuned for some goodies from MOI!
