Missing U!

I hope you guys won't get tired with these Doddle Factory Creatures from Starving Artiststamps. They are just too adorable to not play with them!


This time I used the small ones to fit as much as I can in the card. This card is for my nephew Michael who just graduated from Navy bootcamp a couple of weeks ago. I wanted his cousins, his brother and sister to sign it and those creatures represent our very own creatures in the family...LOL! The kids had fun picking their own creatures as themselves. I saw this layout on one of the blogs I visited last week but cannot remember who it was...sorry!


And, Tracy of Eat, Sleep, Stamp is hosting her very own sketch challenge and I just had to play along with everyone else. I have this flowery bee from Stampendous for awhile now and thought it would be perfect for this layout. Their wings are covered with Ice Stickles and I put a flower brad to match the color of the patterned paper.
