Buggin' Out

Hi Friends! Not too much to say today, but I'm blogging to avoid cleaning out the kids' rooms. I am convinced that their clothes multiply on their own (except for their socks, which disappear into some vortex under our house).

Anyhoo, I finally inked up some of my Paper Smooches stamps last week (only 3 months after I bought them--LOL!). I had to make a card for a 3 year old last week, and this is what I came up with:


Yep, another pink and yellow card. I paper pieced the wings on the butterfly and colored the body with Copics. The sentiment is from Harold's ABCs (which I still had on a block from a pub call--talk about lazy!). I decided to do some hand stitching (this was the practice card for this card). Here's a close-up of the hand stitching:


Not the most creative use of PS stamps, but I like how it turned out. For a more creative flair, how about this card?

I just day-glowed the card in Photoshop--hee hee. Doesn't it look like a lightning bug? Well, my son is done with his snack and about to catapult out of his high chair, so I need to boogie.
Have a great rest of the weekend!

  10. Jocelyn, I'm glad you were finally able to ink up those stamps to create this cutie! That's too funny that your sentiment was still on the block. Sometimes I take mine off the block only to regret it five minutes later! :P

  15. I'm pretty sure avoiding housework is why I blog every day :) Also, we have the same laundry problem! Our sock vortex resides under the couch.
