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,
