Exciting News

Oh my goodness will somebody please pinch me?!!!  About a week ago I got an email from Tammy Miller with "Bugaboo" in the subject line.  Tammy Miller is the design team coordinator for Catch The Bug challenges so I was a curious about what the email might contain.  When I opened it, my curiousness changed to down right excitement.  Catch the Bug was asking  me to be their Biggest Fan for March.  I love me some Bugaboo stamps so I did a little happy dance for a minute or two and then I emailed her back right away to say thanks, I would love too!  As the biggest fan, I get the privelege of participating in today's challenge with the team.  What an honor!

Today's challenge is an Anything Goes challenge and I was so excited that I made not one but two cards for it.
For my first card I colored my  Deacon Rain image using Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  To give his rain slicker a real look, I covered it with glossy accents.  The cloud was cut using my Graphically Speaking cart and Cricut.  I also ran it through the Cuttlebug using the swirls folder to give it a little more texture.  The designer paper is from my Back To Basics mat pack.  Looking at the picture now I'm thinking I might add a Cheer Up sentiment to the cloud.
For my second card, I colored this cute little Ava Flower image using Copic markers.  I fussy cut her out and layered her over a punched circle on a punched  border. I wanted this card to be sunny and cheerful so I used summer sun and some more Back To Basics paper.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Sincere Salutations set.

Aren't those some of the cutest images you've ever seen?!!!  Be sure to pop on over the Catch The Bug blog and check out the inspiration the team has created for you.  Join in on the fun, too!  You have the chance to win some free images and who knows what else it might lead too.  You might just be their  future Biggest Fan! 

Until next time, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
