Life Lessons polka dots

Today it's New Release day at Catch the Bug and there is a wonderful image called Bug Window Girl.  The hilarious sentiment is from TLC, Create and so is the patterned paper.  I put velum on top on the patterned paper and lace on the top edge to look like white underwear to be silly.  I added some polka dot flowers and a 3D butterfly.  I think this is such a fun card for Friday the 13th...just in case you have a superstitious mind.

Sharing in your sorrow

Today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug.  For my card I used the image Sign it - Dog Condolences.  On the front of the card, I heat embossed a sentiment from MFT.  And on the inside I used one of my favorite TLC pet sentiments.  My co-worker asked me to make this card for her to give to a friend of her's.
I made it an easel card, which really impressed her.
