Polka Dotted Bug

Today the Pink Papery Studios team was given another sketch from Valerie. It was such a fun one but has me wishing for bigger nestabilities!!

Amy also asked us to use the newest image in the Simply Sistas line - available soon in the store! This digi image is a lot of fun. And instant gratification too!

The first car I owned had a plaid ceiling. The original ceiling came unglued and so my dad tore apart my car and used some fabric lying around in the garage to replace it. It was really a very cool thing to have. Truth be told, I kinda miss having a decorative ceiling in my car! Seeing this plaid paper reminded me of that and so I wanted to make it a focal point on my card. And who wouldn't love to have a polka dotted Bug? Well, I certainly would!! I paper pieced my bug using the same technique that I originally posted HERE.

Just some pretty flowers to finish this off. The center gem is actually something from the jewelry department - to string a bracelet perhaps. I love re-purposing items from their originally intended use into something else.
Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the team did with this sketch and image. Their links are in my sidebar!
Whew! Another Wednesday comes to a close. Be sure to come back tomorrow - there is something really cool going on over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and YOU get to be a part of it.
Have a beautiful evening! I'm off to do the dinner dishes and fold some laundry! I'm so incredibly thankful to have a family to do these things for. I've found that when I think of it that way, housework doesn't seem quite so horrible!! Maybe next week I'll let you in on my other secret to make housework tolerable!!

Cassie,

So super creative and I love the colors and the plaid cieling!!! So cute!!!

You are always so creative girl and I love all your creations!!!

I have not heard from Inky Impressions but not sure what to do they did say they would send us out a stamped image so maybe we are just supposed to wait for it and then find out??? If I have heard nothing by Tuesday I am going to write them an e-mail. What did you do???

Anything???

I hope you are having a great Sunday our Church Services were all cancelled due to the over 18 inches of snow we got Friday and Saturday!!!

THAT'S MY CAR!!!! Ok, maybe not exactly...but pretty close!! My first card was a white '74 bug that I ended up restoring with my dad and it became the bright yellow bug with black velour interior! I {hearted} that bug! I had to sell it to move to the US. Now I drive a white 1998 New Beetle! You can take the bug from the girl, but you can't take the girl outta the bug! LOL I may have to buy this stamp!
