Got the bug

I've come to the conclusion that I must have the Bugaboo bug, lol! All I seem to be using lately are bugaboo images, and in case you are tired of them, be warned there's more coming.

My mom's friend loved all the Stella cards so much, she wanted me to make her some too. Her words, 'I've got lots of old friends having birthdays soon'. Wonder if they know she calls them old, lol.

I coloured Stella with my prismacolor pencils and blended it with Sansador (gamsol), then cut the image with my long rectangle nestie. That scalloped border was done with the MFT Dienamics die I ordered about 3 weeks ago and finally got on Friday. As Jeanie correctly predicted, I just had to use it as soon as possible. I tried to make it look like 'traffic controller' Stella, is standing in the road, not sure if it looks like it to anyone else, but to me it definitely does, lol.

I'm so happy I'm sitting in my lounge under a blankie, with a laptop on my lap, writing this post. No cold study, yay! I thought my router was wireless, but it isn't so I have a looooong flylead from the study to my lap, it's quite a mess, but hey it works, and that's all that matters.

I have some really exciting news to share. I'll be starting a brand new Design Team 'job' soon. Jeanie has recently been asked by Kerry to make some cards for her, Kerry saw my comment on Jeanie's post, and Jeanie and Kerry started talking and long story short, I will now be joining Kerry's DT for Ladybug Crafts Ink, her very own stamp company. Ain't that kwel. I can't wait to get my stamps so I can start colouring those gorgeous images, go check them out, you'll love them too, I promise.

I can't believe it's August already, I have 2 months left at work, then it's the end of my 15 years there! I wonder if I'll stay that long at my next job too. Hopefully not, I want to retire long before then, rofl!!!!!

Enjoy your week again.
