Paper Playtime Challenge #74 ~ Diecut Divas "Bugs"

Good Monday morning, yet again, my friends.  It seems like Monday rolls around faster all the time.  I had an extremely busy weekend and need to play "catch up" both in my house and in my craft room this week. 

It is time for another challenge at Paper Playtime Diecut Divas.  This time we challenge you to use a bug on your card cut with any die cutting machine.  Okay, so absolutely anyone who knows me (or is even vaguely acquainted with me IRL) knows that I hate bugs of any kind....especially butterflies.....I can hear the gasps as most people think they are this really was a challenge for me.  I actually had to cut out one of these creatures called a bug and add it to one of my creations.....NO!!!!!  I don't even really like the cartoon bug cuts that other people think are cute...they're just all BUGS to me.  But I had purchased a stamp set recently that made it easier for me to make this card.  You will see why when I add the picture.  And, ummmmm, I do like the way it turned out (even if there is one of those things on it...Hee!hee!)


All card stock, patterned paper and embellishments
from my "Use It Up" inventory
Cricut ~ Forever Young ~ daisy cut at 3 1/4"
~Just Because Cards ~ ladybug cut at 4" (part of a card and needed to
make both layers fit properly)
~Elegant Edges ~ Leaves cut at 1 3/4" as well as shadow
Colorbox Chalk ~ Charcoal
Sentiment ~ CARDZ TV stamps "Think Spring"

Thanks for coming by today.  Please join us this week at Paper Playtime and share your creations with bugs.  You could win a $20 VISA gift card sponsored by my DT sister, Lynn. 

Have a GREAT Monday!!
