I've Caught The Bug!

Good morning all! I have some exciting news to announce. I have been chosen to be part of the design team for Creative Bug. I will be on the "New Release" Team, which will feature a new Digital Release every other Thursday. But wait, there is more, Every other Tuesday, a "Freebie is offered, and who doesn't like free digi's? This will be a great way to start or add to your collection of these wonderful images. These images are created by Naomi Edwards and can be found over at Creative Bug on the loose. If you are not familiar with with these stamps, please stop by her blog and check out all she has to offer. Her digi's are only $1.00 and they are so fun to work with. In honor of this special occasion, I created a special card to Celebrate my joining of design team.
Monkeys jumpin on the bed
When I saw this image, it looked like a celebration to me. These Monkeys are part of the Manchester family and can be found in her Misc Collection. If you recall, I featured Manfred, the Sock Monkey a few days ago on my blog.

Time to Celebrate
To create this card I used a white card stock for the base.

  • Embossed the red cardstock with Cuttlebug - Houndstooth
  • Red & White Cardstock is from Imaginisce - Circus collection
  • Red & White Twine from Recollections
  • Celebrate stamp I picked up at a yard sale
  • Image colored using Artist's Loft colored pencils and Gamsol blending solution
Really fun card and of course always the matching envelope!

So stop by if you have a chance, but prepared...you may just catch the Bug!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
