More Blooming Bugs!

Hiya folks!

No, not real ones peeps, just the printable version, thank goodness - LOL

Time for a new Tuesday Taggers theme today then, and this week our lovely Pat has chosen 'Bugs'. We are sponsored by The Craft Barn this week too, so you'll need to include a link back to them to be included in the prize draw for the £15. voucher.

I chose not to do a proper card this week, and made a Notecard Set instead. Everything here was printed off from a kit I bought at Cardmaking Downloads. The envelopes were printed onto cheapy inkjet paper from Tesco. I printed the notelet fronts onto good quality inkjet paper before cutting out and sticking to some linen effect card. I inked the edges first though, for some extra definition.

The wallet is just the A5 sized paper from the kit printed onto white cardstock, and again stuck to some linen card. I cut some extra bits of that card and folded it for some pockets inside to keep the envies and notelets from falling out. Just before sticking the A5 bits down I stuck some ribbon to the card, so I could secure the whole thing with a bow. Ta-da!

Just as well it was so simple, as I was suffering with a bug of my own this week. Rid of it now though thankfully!! So, come on then ladies - lets see those buggy creations! If you need more inspiration, believe me there are some gorgeous projects this week over at Tuesday Taggers!

This happens to fit a couple of other challenges too! What a surprise I hear you say - LOL. First at Colour Create the theme is 'Pastels, or Spring'. I have used very soft colours here (apart from the ribbon that is!), and at Totally Papercrafts the theme is 'Pink and Green' - yep that's covered! Last but not least there is an 'Open theme' at Flutterby Wednesday - just in time me thinks. . .!
