Bug hugs

     Hmmm?  Guess I went a bit bee happy this week didn't I?  LOL  This little cutie is another fabulous creation from Mabelle R. O. of Whimsy and Stars Studio called Coco Bee.  I colored him up with Copics and used some fun matching papers from Glitz.
     If you haven't had a chance to vote yet, pop over to the Whimsy and Stars blog and vote on which image you'd like to be Mabelle's next freebie giveaway.  You have until 4:00 p.m. EST today to get your vote in.
     Coco can be found with all the other wonderful images Mabelle has included in her etsy store right here plus she's got some rubbah for sale over at The Craft's Meow.
     This has been a hectic week for me so far and I'm behind in visiting again.  I'll be around today to see ya.  ;-)  Back tomorrow with another There She Goes card and my Mo's project for the new challenge.  Notice I said project--cause it's not a card.  I'm tellin' ya,  you just never know what you'll see here.  LOL
     I'd like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

  15. LOL, a dog in disguise as a bee, that's a twist! I love the 'vintage' touch of the card, the colors are a little 'dusty' and it works together so well! Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs
