BUGS AND KISSES

Hi all!! WoW!! Two posts in a row?? I think I may have finally figured out how to balance my time - LOL! I am really enjoying stamping again - now I just have to start ordering all of those fabulous new stamps that I know are all being released everywhere, heehee!! Today I wanted to share a card I made using my set called Bugs and Kisses. I love this set and have not played with it in a while. I went with the dragon fly and actually made it dimensional by making two sets of wings and just paper piecing the second set. Here is a closeup of the actual wings so you can see it - I love this look! And, check out the polka dots on that ribbon - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new in-color ribbons, they are yummy!! I also used lots of the new in-color card stock and yep, the more I use them, the more I love them! I also used Taylor's sketch this week - too fun, it will definitely be a keeper for me!! Now, I am off to work, but I will be back tomorrow with something fun to show you! And, I got to blog hop last night and I have to say, you all have been creating wonderful eye candy that I sure enjoyed after such a long day! So, take care and enjoy your day - thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!
