Love Bug

Happy Monday to you! Today is our last day of Winter Break - tomorrow Abby goes back to school and I start back up at the preschool. It was a great break seeing lots of friends and family and even getting a little accomplished! I finally have all the Christmas decorations down and the house back in order - that in itself makes me feel oh so much better!

I've been trying to make a card using the new TAC stamps that will be available in our new Serendipity magalogue which debuts February 1st. Today I decided to show a card using BUG OF FUN

When I saw the set I kept thinking slug bug - as that is one of Abby's favorite games to play in the car. I made the SCARLET cardstock panel using a heart from the I HEART YOU stamp set and NEW CANVAS Palette Pad . Once I saw that all I could think was "hey love bug". The set actually had the sentiment! I stamped the car on KRAFT cardstock and cut it out. I used buttons for the wheels to give it a little dimension. I used my SCOR-BUG to make the little line coming out the back - reminds me of the cars in cartoons. For the girl I stamped her on white cardstock and colored her with Copics. I then cut her out adhered her to the back of the car. The white borders were done with my Fiskars Border Punch and I folded them up to give them a little dimension as well.

I think it would be a cute card - perfect for Valentine's day or just to send a little extra love to that special someone. What do you think?

I'm going to try and start posting daily again. That is if I can continue to find time to create. I still need to write out my goals for 2010 - it really helps keep me focus and I like the sense of reaching those goals. I do know that I want to scrapbook more. I'm in the process of ordering prints and planning some pages. Hopefully I'll be able to share some soon! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
