Just Buggy - and a little Lola

This weeks challenge at the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge Blog is Bugs... yep Bugs. You need to include at least one bug. I decided that it was time I used my Heart Tree, and fence stamp together. So I stamped the tree first then masked it and stamped the fence, need 1 1/2 times to fill the card. I used some new stamps I just got for the bugs. Fiskars has released a new line and it is just adorable, Tricia Santry Studio has some wonderful images. These bugs are from the Happy Days set, which is mainly frogs, but had a few really cute bugs as well. I colored everything with my Copics then recolored the bugs with my Spica Glitter Pens. Love those! They add so much, but are hard to photograph! I then matted with a green piece of scrap card stock and of course stitched the edge. I really need to try and not do that from time to time... It just feels better to finish it off. I think it is cute and love the tree and fence together.

Now how cute it this! Ok hubby is pretty cute too... but I am talking about Lola. I thought you might enjoy a photo of her all dry and see how beautiful her color is. She is a smokey grey with really dark markings. Her dark face (a first for us!) is so beautiful. But then how could she not... with Cheyenne, Mommy and
Black Jack, Daddy!
They both have the dark face and are pretty good looking too.
Well it is MIL shopping day, so I had better get going, she is probably tapping her toe waiting for me! Have a great Thursday!
