I know you didn't come by to read my chatter, so without further ado, here's today's mini-challenge:

Use Today's Free Image
Three Designer Papers!

Here's my card for this one! I am so in love with the new Guinea Pig critter that Jodie has drawn for today's freebie! I think he is so stinkin' CUTE!! I had a guinea pig when I was a little girl, but only for a short time (my mom decided she didn't like him, so off to aunties house he went!) I did have hamsters when I was in my 'tweens, and I tried to color this guy after the way one of my Teddy Bear Hansters was colored.....a soft golden brown.  :0)

Now that you've been inspired ( I hope!), why not head over to pick up this cutie for yourself?
Don't forget to hop over to the Bugaboo Store, don't want to miss the Daily Deal that Jodie has posted, and be sure to check back every day for a new "doesn't get any better than this!" price on some super sweet Bugaboo images!
I'd love to see you enter in the challenge over at Catch the Bug, too!  The challenge blog is also where you can find out all the lastest "dish" on what challenges are happening and what other challenge sites that Bugaboo is sponsoring (more chances to win some free Bugaboo!). It's also where you can check out all the other fantastic DT projects, including the OBG (Oldie But Goodie) stuff, the ABC (Anything But a Card) items, and the Tuesday New so much more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
