Bellarific Friday: Huggabuggs!

Hi all,

TGIF!  Today, as you read this, I will be gearing up for my trip to Europe tomorrow!  I am so excited, and I have to say, I'm already a fan of that continent.  Well, I just love travelling in general.  So, I'm off to Germany tomorrow to visit my one and only sister.  You'll be getting a few scheduled posts here over the next couple of weeks.
Does anyone have any fun trips planned in the near future?  I'd love to hear about them!

Anywho, on to today's exciting topic - Bellarific Friday!  For this week's post, Em challenged us to make a card with Huggabuggs!  Christy Croll is the artist, and she has made some totally cute characters!!! There really is an image for every occasion!

Here's mine:

My card base is Sahara Sand CS, and the next square is Orchid Opulence, embossed with my Cuttlebug dots folder, and a black mat.  I actually added some Rich Razzleberry sponging around the outside of the purple square, and I tied some black grosgrain ribbon around that layer.  The rik rak looking design at the top and bottom is a Martha Stewart rub-on, and my sentiment is made from some adhesive chipboard letters I bought at Michael's.

Fluey Huggabugg was stamped onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her totally in with Prismacolour Pencils and OMS, and cut her out using Label 2 Nesties.  I added some Wheat sponging inside the stencil, and the eyes and tips of the antennae are coloured with my black Sakura Glaze pen.
Isn't she totally friggin cute???  All the Huggabuggs are, actually.

Next week's challenge??? A sketch from Cathabella!  We love sketches!  So, use any of the images sold at Stamping Bella with the layout, and submit it to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You will be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the company blog!  We want to see what you've got - it makes Emily oh-so-happy!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
