An Oldie But Goodie (OBG) - Caught a Bug?!

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! (As if I need an excuse, right?!)
Today I am using the Jesse Bear Bug Jar image.  I think Jesse Bear is my favorite Bugaboo Stamps Bear. I just love his oversized hat! It reminds me of when my son was a little guy. He loved wearing hats, and he had one that reads "#1 Son" on it. Of course, the joke is that he's the ONLY son, so that hat was saved, and currently resides in my closet "basket of memories". :) They sure grow up fast, don't they?! Sheesh....time flies!

For my card, i used an old "Stella Says" Sketch. (You can find all kinds of wonderful "Stella Says" Sketches here). This card uses all scraps from my stash. I have been leaving my scrap box out, in a very  easy-to-remember space, so that I will try to go to it before digging into my uncut 12" papers. I actually have four scrap boxes! They are photo boxes, and I sort my scraps as I'm crafting: designer paper scraps, Stampin Up scraps, American Crafts scraps and an "everything else" scrap box. So far, leaving them on my table top is helping me to use them up faster! 
I pulled out my Stampin Up Photo Corner Punch and Scallop Border Punch. I also used some Ladybug Buttons that I cut the shanks from before adhering with Glossy Accents. I am leaving the front with no sentiment for now. I was thinking this could be a great card for a little boy, or even a "sorry you caught a bug" card for a sickie.

You can check out all the great images that Jodie has to offer, at the Bugaboo Store here.
