Bugs and Kisses Anyone….

And happy Monday to everyone!  I hope a great weekend was enjoyed by all.  Ours certainly was great, but it’s here and gone before you know it!

I know this stamp set is retired, I didn’t have it and when it hit the ‘last chance’ list I just had to scoop it up.  This is what I did with it ~


I really challenged myself with this card, BECAUSE….I have never done a card with all squares.  I was like….Linda what were you thinking???  I felt like it took me forever, but at the end of the day it turned out okay.

My Son-in-law is in the pest control business……guess what his card will be for his next birthday?  …your right!

Here’s looking at those little critters closer ~


I wanted each one to have a little something to stand out.  Hence came the one leg on the grasshopper cut out and popped up, using the 1/2 circle punch I was able to punch the middle section out of the snail and pop it up, the caterpillar’s antenna was popped up and I gave them all black eyes of different sizes.

Each scalloped square is also popped up using dimensionals.  I used my Mat Pack to pierce the photo corners.

All eyes are looking towards the inside ~


And that’s sort of how my ‘square’ card went.  You’ll have to leave me a comment and let me know what you think……did I pass?

A BIGGIE for you all……..tomorrow is the Pals August Hop, you don’t want to miss it – theme is 3D!  See you there!

Oh Linda!

This reminds me of all those years when we had grasshopper visits from this point in time until the freezing weather arrived. The squares are simply delightful, and the little guys are insectuous!
