I knew I wanted to take part in the Catch the Bug Challenge and the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge. Normally, that would mean two cards for me but I did something unusual for me, I combined the challenges. I know lots of folks combine challenges all the time but I normally like to focus on one challenge at a time. For me, the point is to be inspired.
After being frustrated by Paul Ford's choice of ATC's as a challenge on Catch the Bug, I found an ATC would have been just about perfect for this card. In the end, my image was a little smaller than an ATC (only 2 inches by 3 inches).
Here is the card open.
Cuttlebug spot. I'm always in awe of Donna Mundinger's cards (Popsicle Toes) but check out her incredible card which is all the more amazing because I don't normally think of this as her "style".
Now that I sent you to a ton of other blogs, lets talk about my sweet little card. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the green panels on the front. I choose the Spots and Dots folder. The image and sentiment were cut out using the Deckled Nestabilities in my Cuttlebug.
Don't you love this turtle? If you are interested in buying him for St. Pat's or many other holidays, you can purchase him here. Jodie has everything from Halloween to Canada Day with this turtle. She also has a sweet little dragon as a freebie this week. I'm still thinking about what I want to do with him. You should check him out. I'm really loving digis.
Thank you for checking out my cards. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm hoping I'll be back with a few more cards this weekend (although the weather here argues for being outside -- it was 70 degrees yesterday).
