Wish You Were Here!

Oh to have a wonderful vacation... Oh well I will just live thru my Alota Ship full of Bugs... This again is one of my very first stamps that I purchased from Alota Rubber Stamps -


I have colored with my Copic's then used Stickles for their wings - Then doodled the edges.

Now to the card... I went for this weeks challenge on Paper Crafts Planet Alota Stamps - it is a new challenge that just started and it is one that got me to dust off all of the Cuttlebug folders! Embossing - I love doing it and well basically my folders got buried and I haven't been doing it. So the challenge is embossing, I ran a scrap of red card stock thru for the dots and then a piece of yellow with the button borders. Love those new borders and I don't think I used them more than once or twice.. will now :0)

I used a piece of K&Company Cut & Paste collection, I loved the map background with the postcard - seemed just too perfect for this image.

I was challenged on how to put it all together, larger images are tough sometimes. Well I got frustrated and just pushed it aside - I liked it! I know it is kind of weird but it reminded me of a scrapbook - which if I had just returned from a cruise, I would make a scrapbook about it!

I hope you like it.. and I hope you will join in on the PCP Alota site Challenge ... Helene has some great prizes up for grabs. ;0)

Well better run MIL is tapping toes - Mall is having a sale - be back later

Looks so cute, the bees are adorable! Know what you mean about the cuttlebug borders, love them but hardly use them.
Don't think you could take a long vacation...not with all those hairy family members to take care of. You'd miss them!
