Sweet 'n Sassy May Release Blog Hop Day 3: Buggin Ya

Welcome to Day #3 of our May Release Features!

Buggin' Ya


In Korin's words: As a mother of three boys, creepy crawlies have been a part of my life for many years, so this set is for all those boy moms, grandmas, aunts and babysitters who know what it's like to find critters in pockets or hear that sweet voice asking for a container where he can keep his "new friend".  I have to say, if creepy crawlies my boys brought home were this cute, I might not have been so hesitant to oblige their request. ;)

  1. Nope, didn't even realize the colors were "off". It's really cute, anyway. Love the banners and that sentiment.

  4. this card DID make me feel happy. Very cute!

  9. Love this card design with the flag banners and the colors are perfect for the ladybug, cute!

  10. Sweet card Giovana. Love the darling image, the colors... the polka dots are sooo much fun!

  11. What a fun card! I did realize you colored the ladybug wrong, but I thought you did it on purpose... I was going to say how much I liked the colors swapped out for a creative change! ;) Great layout, too - I love the banners!

  12. Gio, not to worry about the coloration, these hybrid ladybugs sold to hunt down bio feed on plant sucking aphids don't always look like the 'original'. You hit the color zone in your bg reds and blacks. Dots gave feeling of action, which bugs generate in most any crowd! just like this SNS set! Keep Looking UP! mt23stamperatyaho

  13. So very cute! I didn't realize you colored the ladybug wrong until I read further down.

  14. Cute, cute, cute! Love the touch of glossy accents and the banner is wonderful.

  15. Hi Giovana,
    I didn't 'spot' your mistake :-) love the spotty dp's you've used :-)
