Hello all, and welcome back to my blog!  Today is Tuesday, and at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug blog, that means it's New Release day!  WOOHOO!  This week's image is a cute one...but aren't just about ALL Bugaboo images cute??  LOL  Anyway, here's my card:

Alrighty, this one is called Spring Bird - Summer Dress, and isn't she a purty thing?  She's spending some time outside with her little bug friends (ew!), and a pretty daisy in her hand.  She looks like she just had a nice shower and got all dolled up for a special outing.  Bless her little heart!  Like the Lawn Fawn sentiment says, she is enjoying the little things like a nice day, and a pretty flower.

I colored everything with my alcohol markers, and used a piece of Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 paper to dress up the right side of the card.  Oh, and the sentiment comes from the Village Shops stamp set.
