Cute as a Bug!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!!

I hope your week is going well! Ours is starting to get back to normal after our crazy weekend. Izzy is settling back in and seems to be having a good time. She really missed her daddy though yesterday at work. I think she gets spoiled over the weekend having him around so it is hard during the week when he has to go to work!

She has been talking up a storm lately! On our four hour trip home she talked for about 3 hours and 59 minutes! I swear it is non stop! LOL! She even tells me that she is quiet! But I have to say she comes up with some pretty silly things to say. The other day she wanted some lotion on her hands. I placed the lotion in her hands and she immediately went after poor Tuxy! I asked her what she was doing and she looks at me and says, "Put lotion on Tuxy back!" Poor, poor Tuxy!

Well today is Wednesday and that means it is Watchadoin' Wednesday! Since Summer is finally upon us we have a great summer challenge for you!

Today's challenge is Summertime Summertime Sum-Sum-Summertime!

Here comes SUMMER!

Let’s get out those summer theme stamps and summer colors and bring on the heat!
Summer is my absolute favorite time of year. I am so excited it is near!

Come on and share some fabulous cards with us.

Of course for some reason when I think of summer I always think of going to my grandparents and playing outside. They lived in Northern Arkansas and the bugs were always crazy in the summer! My cousins and I would tie little strings onto the junebug's legs and let them fly around. Our own little toys! Or course my sister hated Daddy Longlegs and we would pick them up and dangle them in her face until she told on us! LOL! The good old days! That being said, I always thing of bugs during summer and we all know how much little boys love bugs! So I decided to make a little boys bug birthday card for my nephew!

Don't you love the look of wonder on this little boy's face! It was so, so cute!!! Anywhoo, I started this card by first stamping the little boy, the jar, the ladybug and the magnifying glass from Boys N Bugs by SUINK and More on white card stock and colored them in with copics. I distressed all the edges with my close to cocoa. For the card itself, I layered on orange, brown and green card stock along with paper from Bo Bunny. I cut out the arrows and placed them on the side and finished the card by stamping the sentiment inside the jar! I really hope my nephew likes it!

Now it is time to check out the rest of the DT's awesome creations!
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Don't forget the blog hop on June 1st where you could win all 5 new stamp sets! Smiles!

I love this card with all the arrows! so cute. My boy doesn't like bugs which is good and bad. He doesn't want to kill them but neither does he collect them in his pockets or tease me with them!
