Bug A Boo Stamps Itchy


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I don't have anything green for you today, you'll have to pinch me...  We are into the second week of Spring Break for our kids and I've been helping out with the kids ministry at church.  Too fun! 

Have you met Itchy yet?!  Itchy is one of Jodie at Bug A Boo stamps cute creations and I've fallen in love with him.  It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug and I used Itchy for my card because he's so cute and fun to color.  Maybe I should have given him a green sweater, what was I thinking?!  lol  

Itchy is colored with Copic markers BG000, BG01, BG05, E70, E71, E74.  My layout is an old stand by, simple yet effective.  I used Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal & Chocolate Chip along with Neenah Solar White, Spellbinders dies and a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders and that go to sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  I thought this would be a great card for Operation Write Home.

Be sure to stop by the Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug challenge blog to see what the rest of our fabulous design team has made!
