Ladybug Parade with TAWS

This is my second post today!

One of my favorite, fun stampers -  Snappy Stampin' with Arielle - designs for The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS).  Check out this charmer and then get a chuckle from this card.  I commented on the eye glass card by saying that she finally wore me down and I was ready to get some TAWS stamps for myself!!  She emailed right back saying that I should check out their current challenge.  It requires TAWS stamps - but they have FREE digis!!  I was all over that!!


The Alley Way Stamps

There are three digis - the ladybug, the cupcake and the sentiment.  I copied the ladybug across the card and then got the wild idea to add a baby bug - oooh, so sweet!!  The challenge was an inspiration piece...


I'm looking at my picture and seeing some sloppy coloring.  You'll have to excuse me but I was in a mad rush to get ready for this wild group...


We fed them...they did a quick Bible study, then it was out to do some football.  I had five pounds of shredded beef that had slow cooked with chili sauce and dill pickles (it's actually quite good) - FIVE pounds - and they loaded their sandwiches so full, there was no meat leftover for seconds!  Now they have headed to a swimming pool and I'm quickly posting before attacking the mountains of dirty dishes!!

  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps free digital stamps
  • Paper: white
  • Ink: Memento black and copics
  • Accessories: Misc twine, a touch of glitter glue on the candle, Cuttlebug border folder (if you haven't seen Cuttlebug's newest release they have regular folders paired with coordinating borders - all really nice!)

This card totally rocks Kim! Love your line of big bugs, the itty bitty bug, the triple twine, the border embossing & all that glorious white space that makes your imagery "pop"! A real treat! :)

This is fabulous Kim - I love how your card tells a little story. Looks like your gang of boys had a good time but surely they needed to burn of a little more of that energy on the dishes?!

Kim this card is adorable!! I really love how you morphed the inspiration piece. Now I wish I had a printer at home so I could get my hands on that cute digi stamp. Well done and absolutely the cutest card I've seen in a long time.

Awww, what a sweet little card. Love the white background. It really makes everything pop. And of course, twine goes everything.
