Happy Keester

Well, finally, Spring decided to finally show up and bring us some warm temperatures - And just in time for Easter. I was beginning to think the warm temps were never going to show up, but I'm so glad they have!

Anyway, we're back today with a new challenge for you at Catch The Bug. We're challenging you to an ABC challenge - Anything of your Choice, Bling and Cardstock. This is an easy one, folks, so get our your crafting supplies and start creating! We want to see lots of players this week!  Remember, there are awesome digi prize packs up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps!

Check out Catch The Bug if you need more creative inspiration!

Since Easter is tomorrow, I just had to make an Easter card, for today's challenge.  MY project uses the image and sentiment set,  Gus Happy Keester, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. This is a new fold for me - A vertical step card.  It was very simple to do and I love how it turned out.  I wanted a masculine Easter card, so I went with mostly green and yellow, and green dots for my bling. My "A" (Anything of your choice) for this challenge is the sentiment.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
