Bug-a-boos

Second post for today...I just HAD to because I was so excited to share another gatefold card with you. I had so much fun coloring this cute little bee from the bug-a-boos collection by Gingersnaps. Got this cute set of three from Tamiko's. I added stickles to make my bee a little sparkly.DP pieces from my scrap bin and at first I thought they didn't really match, but they kinda do...somehow the colors just made me happy. I'm really liking my rectangle nesties dies...although I get excited when I see everyone using all of the new nesties, I really wanted to stick with the basic shapes. We'll see how long I hold out from getting any new shapes!
Hopefully, I'll be able to make more fun cards this weekend to take my mind off of the 3 day furlough that we were informed about that will start come July 1st. I'm actually okay with it and know that I'll make whatever adjustments necessary to survive the 2 years that these furlough days will be imposed on us - at least I still have my job, right?! It kind of means I need to watch my unnecessary spending (boo hoo!) but I'm sure I have enough stuff to last me quite a while (happy face!). Since our furlough days will be on Fridays, I'm thinking of having furlough Friday classes! Sounds kind of exciting to me!! We'll see what I come up with. Well, I hope you all enjoy your Aloha Friday! Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you again tomorrow!!

that is one cute image!! Thanx for sharing! Sorry to hear about your furlough, times are rough. But you, of all people, could make lemonade out this lemon. That would be interesting to do a "Fun Friday" furlough with you.

Hey you! What a CUTE image ... kinda looks like a martian! Love how you added stickles and your coloring is right on!

At least the furlough will be on a Friday (long weekend) and it truly is better than people losing their jobs.

Hugs,
Kyoko
