I Only Have Eyes for You -- and Bugaboo Stamps!

It's Thursday, and very nearly the end of May.  I hate to see this month end.  I love May!  The temperatures start to warm, the birds migrate through, and all the leaves and flowers start to bloom.  I think it's the prettiest month of the year here in Wisconsin.  But, all good things must end.

June will soon be upon us, and that means warmer temperatures, picnics, and ants!  Yes, ANTS!

Today is Oldie but Goodie day at Catch the Bug.  I used a well loved Bugaboo Stamps digi, that quite describes picnics in Wisconsin -- or anywhere!

This adorable image is one of a set of 3 in the Picnic Ants Set, colored with Copic markers.  There's also one drinking out of a soda can, and one chewing on an apple core.  They are all darling!  I love to color cherries, so this one was right up my coloring alley!  Besides, I could put googly eyes on him, and enter him in this month's Crash Your Stash Challenge at the Outlawz.  Bonus!

The sentiment and papers on this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  The sentiment, part of a set created for the Crash Your Stash challenge I mentioned, is called, Eyes. I used 2 different paper packs on this card.  The black denim and red paisley are from the Howdy Collection.  The green gingham is from the Rainbow Gingham collection

I used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday to help me construct this card.  Here's the sketch: 
You can see I gave it a 90 degree turn, but followed it closely.

Oldie but Goodie day at Catch the Bug -- I hope you check out what the other talented designers made, and the oldies they used.  You're never disappointed with a trip to the Catch the Bug Blog
