Am I Bugging You??

It was a normal start to the day....my son got up, trying oh so hard to not wake me....but my internal 'mommy-dar' just knows when he gets up.  At least it was after 7am today.  The rest of the morning followed my daily pattern - checked my email, the local newspaper, did my daily crossword puzzle on line, be-bopped over here to see if anyone posted anything exciting....

And, the first thing I noticed is that today is Scrappy's Birthday.  While I am sure she doesn't remember this, she was one of the first people to 'be nice' to me on SCS.  I have tried to follow her daily crafting and more often than not, can't....BUT, her blog popped up first on my reading list this morning and I am so happy that it did!

Why you ask?

Well, it lead me to Bugaboo Stamps, which was having a blog hop today.  While I subscribe to their blog too, sometimes I don't get the time to read everything I follow....lol

But, after following their hop and ending at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, I decided to pick up their freebie this week and enter their challenge.  Here is my card, featuring their ladybug in a jar.



This a a standard size card with a white base, some buggy paper out of my scraps, some black glitter paper from Colorbok,  a piece of generic red ribbon, and a computer generated sentiment punched out with an SU! punch.  The image is colored with my Bic Mark-Its, and I also used the red one to mark the edge of the sentiment.  I did make the top of the bug jar silver, with a gel pen.  As a final embellishment, I added three white metal dots to hold the black glitter paper in place.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Birthday to Scrappy and big huggz to all my friends,
April

Glad you enjoyed the hop - I had so much fun hopping here and there and the DT even had some suprises for each other which I wasn't expecting.
Really like that backing paper and it would match so many of the new images.
Thanks for joining in with the Bug Challenge,
Paul
