Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday!  I can't even tell you all how GLAD I am that the weekend is here; this week at work wasn't the greatest, and I attended the funeral of a friend who had a massive heart attack at the age of only 53.  That is a mere 5 years older than I am!  Scares the living CRAP out of me, let me tell ya!  She will be greatly missed by all of us who knew her; she had a way of making you feel as though you had been friends your whole lives. :(

Anyway, let me share with you the card I made for the current challenge going on at Catch the Bug:
Welcome to the September edition of Bugaboo BINGO!  I know you all know how to play the game by now, so let me just share with you the card I made:

I made this card using image BUGBEE01 There are a total of 3 images using this character, and I love/have them all!  The coloring of the image was done with alcohol markers, and was totally inspired by the piece of tissue box I used as my "patterned paper."  That's right, I used another pretty tissue box to make a card.  I think this is probably the 3rd time I have done this now.  Hey, if it's pretty, why not use it?!  LOL!  The hello die comes from a die and embossing folder set by Momenta called Thanks Floral Wreath.  I added sparkle to the wing and the sentiment using Wink of Stella.   I followed the bottom-most line in the BINGO board.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope I inspired you to look at those tissue boxes in a different way...if you don't already!  Don't forget to drop by the Catch the Bug blog to join in the BINGO challenge!

Take care, and God Bless!
