A Buggy Birthday for a Boy...


I bet we're not thinking of the same bugs though! I am thinking of Volkswagon Bugs....were you?

The punch art VW Beetle on this little card was inspired by LeeAnn Greff....or if you read her full post here...apparently I need to thank her husband Andy! Thanks Andy and LeeAnn :-).

ETA... I just found the other place I had recently seen one of these VW Bugs. Check out Julia's beautiful card here (I knew I'd seen it some other place along my Google Reader travels...but couldn't locate it when I last looked...but I remembered all the pebbles in the photo background when I saw them again!)...



List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip (Textured), Close to Cocoa (Textured), Whisper White, Kraft, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss (Textured and Plain), Old Olive, Basic Black (Textured and Plain), Real Red (Textured) and Brushed Silver.
Stamps: All in the Family (SU) and On Your Birthday (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Real Red Classic Ink and Whisper White Craft Ink
Punches: Wide Oval, Large Oval, Small Oval, Word Window, Heart to Heart, Horizontal Slot, 1 1/4" Circle, 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle and 1/4" Circle
Accessories: Cloud 1 & 2 Die Collection (PTI), Divine Swirl Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Black Lettering (CM), Magnetic Stamp Alphabet - Evolution (Making Memories), Dimensionals (SU) and SNAIL Adhesive (SU).

Miss Six requested that a person be stamped behind the wheel. Originally there was no-one there...but she insisted that the car looked like it was driving...so there would need to be someone there. You may also notice that for an Australian driver...he is on the wrong darn side of the car! DOH! I wasn't actually thinking about that when I put him there. Ooops. I think he must have just imported it from the States. That's what happened!!

SO...now I'm almost done with the birthday cards. Only one more to go...I think!

Have a good one,









(Blogged to: Nothing...I have a massive headache...I need silence!).
