{You Make My Life Brighter}

smooch3




    Hello hello! Does this card make you smile as much as it makes me smile? Well I hope so. That sweet little bug is from the Paper Smooches clear stamp set "Giddy Bug". This was another fabulous item I received in the WCMD box of happiness I received in November. I just can't say thank you enough times. Today for the very first time I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge (getting my card in just under the wire, sorrry!)  I can't believe it took me so long to try out these stamps, and believe me more sets are in my future. I had so much fun coloring that cute little bug. I used copics, promarkers, and my new Zig Writer pigment markers. They leave such a beautiful rich color behind, but use it lightly because the ink is wet, and the paper will ball up easily. I found that out the hard way, but luckily I stamped the lightning bug several times because I knew I would need a couple re-do's. *smile*  The beautiful heart border chain is an SVG file from "A Little Hut". Seriously, have you been to check out her stuff....seriously amazing.  I cut out three chains using Stampin Up Brights Stack DSP and added a line of stitching using kraft colored thread. I love, love, love the way that turned out! Speaking of colors I was inspired by the current challenge at CR84FN using these colors:



So bright and happy! I hope that you will play along this week with these challenges and as always thank you for visiting my blog! I truly love and appreciate every single comment.
