Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--What's Buggin' You?

So excited it is Tuesday, That means it is time for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and Jeni has another super fun challenge...What's Buggin' You...well for me it would be ladybugs LOL:

This darling bear image is to remain nameless since I could not find him on the new Sassy Cheryl's Digi Site and as soon as Cheryl see's my dilema she will let me know the link and I will correct  that. Sorry.  Colored with copic markers and pounced with a copic blender pen to give the texture of fur.  Don't you love the technical coloring terminology :)
 The Bear image was cut out with a scalloped spellbinder die and mounted on a lace doilie, which was mounted on the next larger scalloped circle spellbinder die.

I thought you might like to see some new dp so I dug out my long hoarded SU dp and found a really pretty flowered piece I liked, mounted the circles. added a punched fence at the bottom.  A SU ribbon in red with white edging was strung across the fence and a hand tied bow was added.  A cute ladybug button which originally started out in lavender and clue was transformed to match the color scheme with copics and my favorite sentiment from my SU days was used.
The Sentiment was the one I used for my calling card match book covers...I thought it was perfect.  Bug me Anytime.....and that little ladybug is just too cute and goes so perfect with the Sassy bear.  I punched the tag with a tag punch...original I know and mounted with a gem brad in red.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards and see what is buggin them this week,  I know it will be worth the trip over.  I know everyone is busy getting kids ready to go back to school but try to take a few minutes and play along with this fun challenge.  I am sure there will be something buggin you this week that Sassy Cheryl will have the perfect image to cover LOL.

I am leaving on Thurs to go to Tennessee to my son's wedding.  It is going to be such a wonderful time and I am looking forward to a nice vacation and wonderful time with friends and family.

As much as I love you all this week my family is going to come first.  See you in two weeks

Well, sorry to say, I can't correct it . . . .b/c I haven't colored it and put it on the site. Isn't that TERRIBLE! I guess I'd better get busy this morning. HUH!?
This is a darling card Cathy. Super adorable. . . .and I shall, 'bug you anytime.'

Pouncing is very clear terminology. Goes well with Distressing paper we just spent a small fortune on. Ha Ha
Your pounced bear is very creative. You can see all the textures and colors in his fur. Sweet card and sweet image.

Enjoy your son's wedding and I hope you have a marvelous vacation. Be sure to post pics of the lucky couple.
