I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

My Love Bug

This is a fun card I created for a couple challenges this week.  My Craft Spot issued the challenge "Valentine's for Kids" and Pause Dream Enjoy issued the challenge "Mainly Red".  I used Simply Charmed to cut out the cute bug and phrase "love bug".  The "my" comes from the same cartridge, but I cut it down from the word "yummy" that goes along with the cute pie image on that cart.  I embossed the mat with Swiss Dots, and cut the patterned paper with Spellbinder's Edgeabilities Classic Scallop.  This was a challenge for me cause I don't usually work with red - pink, yes, but not much red.  I am happy with how it turned out and think I might give it to my nephew.
