Bug Me Anytime!

Love this sentiment. Living my life as a school counselor I have people confiding in me about issues they have, usually about their children. They always apologize for bothering me and really it doesn't bother me at all. So the saying "Bug me anytime!" feels so appropriate. Maybe I'll carry this card with me and give it to the next person who apologizes! I combined the freebie "Caught A Bug" set from Faith's Designed 2 Delight and one of the first SU! stamps I bought a couple years ago. I had it in my head to use transparency film to make a 'jar window' in the front and expand on the lady bugs on the inside. Sometimes executing my ideas is not so easy...


This is the front...




and this is the inside...



I am entering this buggy card in the following challenges...

Designed 2 Delight to use this set so I can get a free digi next Friday!

Off the Wall Craftiness - to use the following color combo


Paper Cutz Challenge - is open to anything goes
Sugar Creek Hallow - is an anniversary, anything goes
Craft Challenge - is paper piecing, just did a little, that would be the cork stopper on the jar.
Creative Sketches - use a technique of Fancy Folds, Cuts, or Punches. This card was all about cutting (!) and I also used a punch for the tag

I hoped I didn't 'BUG' you too much today ~ Tee Hee!
Have a great rest of the week-end!

What a sweet thing to do for someone! That would totally make someone's day because as a parent of a child who I can tell I will already be in to see the counselor I know I would appreciate this! Ha! This is super adorable, and I am so happy you used our color challenge at OTWC to create this special card! Thanks for playing with us at OTWC and Good Luck! :-)
