Sending love

New Release day at Catch the Bug

 Good morning, still plenty of snow here- I'm hibernating until it's gone.

  I made this card for my two younger granddaughters a couple of weeks ago- 6 year old Emily is dog- crazy so I knew she would love this cute Bugaboo Puppy.  I coloured him with copics, cut him out and popped him onto my circular card base. I made two little envelopes from a scrap of paper and added the tiny heart buttons . 

The girls loved the card and the voucher inside it (to buy a book each) - I'm so happy that all 4 of my granddaughters love books, the three eldest are avid readers and baby Charlotte loves to cuddle up with a picture book. Peace and quiet reigns- for a while!

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

Super cute image with lovely colours and a great design, reminds me of a record, you are probably too young to remember those.

LOve your shaped card Chris.
Brilliant colours and the sweetest of images. Your envelopes are a lovely touch.
Nothing nicer than to read and smell a new book! All mine read, trouble is books borrowed are not returned! {I know which they are lol.}

This is just adorable Chris! No snow here but expected on Saturday. I hate the cold weather and hope it finishes after this! It's always a bonus when they love books and thank all our grandsons do too though the eldest has the call of the computer games now!!

Fabulous card Chris, love that sweet puppy. It’s great when the young ones love to read, it always amazes me that so many just don’t these days, I have always read and just can’t imagine life without books. Have a good evening hibernating.
