What's Bugging You?

Sassy Jeni wants to know what is bugging everyone this week.  Well here is my idea of a cute little boy with his woodland friends. Boys do love to collect bugs and they always seem to have a piece of twine in their pockets.  He is called Nature Boy and you can find him here.

I thought a twisted easel card was worthy of displaying my little cutie.  I printed him on the orange card stock and I printed him on Cryogen White cardstock.  I colored the white image with my copics and cut him out.  I then applied him directly on top of the printed image on the orange.  That way I didn't have to cut out all those cute little hairs sticking out on his head and the shoestrings.

The orange card stock is Brazills textured and the brown and cream is SU.  I cut the scalloped frame with my Cricut Stretch You Imagination cartridge.  The square DP is from the Paws and Claws collection from TCP Studio.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Check it out, this is one of Pauline's Freebies.  If you have treated yourself with a peek at her site, you are in for a treat.  Those cute little bugs are EK Success Stickers that I picked up a while back at Walmart for $1.00.  Now that is a bargain!.

If you would like to get buggy with us, get one of Sassy Cheryl's digis and create your own little critter creation!  You can enter it here.

  11. Hey Linda, seems like Jeni has not only got us working on bugs, but she's planted the not so usual fold in our brain. I have to say this card made me smile(HUGELY). It IS so boy and you are so right about what's in their pockets. Beautiful job.
