Life Imitating Art....

Yep this is basically how I have been feeling the past couple of days! My Stamping Bella order arrived today (thanks Ryan!!) so I knew immediately which stamp I was going to ink up!
I was finally able to get to Taylors Cupcake Challenge 55 for this card - it was a challenging layout for me; part of that could be the fluey feeling I have right now :(

Fluey Huggabug is stamped with mementos ink and coloured with copics, I cut out a second set of wings and popped them up with some glitter on them. I used Stamping Bella Bonbons for the antennas. The DS paper is Basic Greys new line marrakech which I love (maybe it's because there's orange?!) It's layered on SU's Pacific point and tangerine tango; two colours I really haven't used too much but they really worked with the DS paper. The card base is SU Baja Breeze.
I added some kajinker vinyl flowers in the top right corner - orange again :) they are put on with the Kajinker; a great tool that Em brought in before I moved from TO & of course as soon as she showed it to me it was in my basket!

I was waiting for this cute little huggabug to make a card for my brothers friend who was in a serious ski accident, he was hit by a snowboarder & had been in the hospital for a few weeks - he was like another brother to me so I wanted to let him know I was thinking about him.

Thanks for stopping by - hopefully I won't be feeling fluey much longer!!

You've done a spectacular job on this, eventhough you're feeling fluey. Look at all your paper piercing! The popped wings are super cute too. :)
