ANOTHER creation  for today's sketch showcases one of the latest digi images from "priscillastyles".  Isn't he just the cutest of bugs??!!  This "Craft Bug Digi Stamp" comes in a set of four ... you can check it out for yourself HERE.   I created the background paper by using some of the MANY scraps laying on my worktable and I really like how it came together (helped in the clean up too!).

Wow Darlene, a double hitter! Your cards are both so bright and beautiful, fabulous creations this week!

Great cards, Darlene. You already know how much I like what you did with the craft bug, but I also want you to know that I absolutely adore what you did with the sweet AnnaBelles image. Spectacular take on the sketch.

Hmmm I love that you made your card this week in the colors of the Norwegian flag! (Ok, so I know that the stars and strips have the same colors, but I just had to think it was in my honor right?) :)
Love both your cards! That bug really makes me smile big time!
