It's a bugs life

I know, I really need to work on my blog post titles but that just isn't my forte. But the new images from Kraftin Kimmie by Emilie Goulet are so darn cute! My papers are from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and are by Lilybee, this pad is called Double Dutch and although I don't normally use the darker colors, I LOVE this paper!

Now I confess, I left the little sentiment off of this card so I went back and put it on. I then proceeded to add all kinds of "stuff" to my mushroom border and by the time I was finished I HATED the border. So, no removing it as it is glued down so I just ask that you imagine a sweet little "Happy New Home" sentiment on the right hand side of the card. Add a little brown ink around the edges while you are imagining too k? Okee dokee, make sure you check out the other girls images, there are quite a few to choose from and if you leave some comments along the way you have the chance to win some bugs for your collection!
