If you gotta have 'em, this is the time to get 'em while the gettin's good :)

After weeks of rainy weather, the kids and I have been enjoying our days at my parents pool, day trips to the beach, playing outside, etc not as much time to get kreative like when I am house bound in the winter (brrrrrr).
Quick card, quick post (and off to the pool :) - Here's a clean and simple card, using the Love Bugs Hostess Lev 1 set. I needed an anniversary card and couldn't wait to ink up my love bugs. Using VersaMark, I stamped my bugs across the page then sprinkled on some Black Embossing Powder and heated it up. The bottom half of the card was placed on my sm polka dot Texturz Plate and run through the Big Shot. Colored in my bugs with Real Red, Summer Sun and Basic Black Markers. Used my 2 way glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds to my bees wings and lady bug dots. Matted my Whisper White onto Basic Black and a standard Real Red card base scored at the top. Using the Word Window Punch, I popped out my window. Used my Real Red and Basic Black Markers to 'color' directly on my stamp - a little huff to remoisten and stamped on Whisper White. Again used the Word Window to pop this out, added some Real Red dashes around the outer edge and then adhered it on the inside of my Real Red card base - so the sentiment peeks through on the card front. Added Black Gingham ribbon and a luscious Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon simply tied in a knot and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot, to finish off my card.
