Healing Thoughts with Catch the Bug

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today!

It's all about the 'sickies', be they flu bugs, colds, or maybe the "down-in-the-dumps".
This week, our theme is
Lift Up/Get Well

My card features an oldie Bugaboo Stamps Clyde image, Clyde Get Well
I've always loved this little dragon! In his little nurse cap, how could he not put a mile on someone's face?!
I printed him using my Silhouette Print and Cut feature. I cut my sentiment and shapes with my cutter, as well. The flower is made using two punches, and the leaves I used are from a die. The papers are by My Minds Eye; I picked them up on sale, recently, at Hobby Lobby. I had recently seen a card done in peach and purple, and I fell in love with the combo, so this is my attempt using it. The ribbon is from stash (sooooo much ribbon stash! Ack!)

Here's a closer look at the image and the flower; I'm really liking the flower. I added a few small dots to the tips of the inner flower layer, and I think it gave it that little "extra" that it needed for the dimension.

So, let's see your card this week! Whip up your project and hop on over to enter it into the Mr. Linky!

By entering, you could win up to TEN Bugaboo images!
Head on over to Catch the Bug to play along!

Pick up this cute Bugaboo image, and others, over at the Bugaboo Stamps Store, and make sure you also jump over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: it's 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!

One more thing before I wrap this on the lookout for the upcoming Bugaboo Christmas in July Week Long Celebration! This is always a favorite, with lots of FREE images given away for participating in our challenges that week! I'll have more details on that as the date draws nearer.

Also, I am now assisting the DT Coordinator with some of the more routine things at Catch the Bug Blog to fill in some time for our wonderful Ms. Min, who is expecting Baby #1, and is happily preparing for the arrival! I'm helping out with some posting duties, and I'm also helping out by choosing a Bugaboo Stamps Fan of the Month! So......if you're a fan of Bugaboo Stamps (and who isn't, right?!), make sure you're posting your Bugaboo cards on your blog because I'm poking around Blog-land looking for YOU! :)

Happy Crafting!
