Happy Bug Day - Seize the Birthday

Be warned - this is a VERY BRIGHT card!  I went a little crazy on the brightness of this one - but figured it'd be just perfect for a young boy! 

The Seize the Birthday challenge begins today so come on over and play along with us.  We're using the same sketch as last week and again sponsored by SK Digis - who provided the images for the DT this week.  We need to see your masculine birthday cards this week.


Cute little caterpillar isn't he!  He just kinda jumps out at you and makes you think of all the creepy, crawly things in life!!  I used some SU papers and embossed the top in bright blue. 



This will be my last post for Seize the Birthday challenges.  Special thanks to Lesley and this wonderful opportunity and to the fantastic DT for so much inspiration.  Thank you so much.

Thanks for stopping by...........Lynn

Hi Lynn,
Every week I promise myself that I will take part in this challenge and then I don't know what happens. Now I am so busy preparing for the bazaar.
The snail on this card is so cute... all smiley miley. And the papers very nicely coordinated. The embossing matches the papers perfectly.
Much love,
M

Lynn, just as cute and comfortable as A Bug in a Rug. LOL He's darling and I love the polka dots both in the paper and embossed. You and your weekly inspiration with these challenges will be greatly missed. Enjoy this upcoming weekend.

Aw, your last post? Good thing I'll be stalking (I mean following) you anyhow :) You're stuck with me!
I love the sentiment. Not the bugs. *ick* If they generally had this kind of fun googly face maybe.
