Bit By the Bug Tuesday: Meet the Flockers

Hello everyone!  It is Bit by the Bug Tuesday! If you are new to the blog it is that day of the week when I share with you all, the latest freebie available over at Creative Bug on the Loose.  As I mentioned last week, Naomi is currently not doing too well although there has been some slight improvement.  No fear though, I've stepped in to help her out so for the next few weeks, you'll still be able to take advantage of her weekly freebie.  Keep reading to find out how to nab it.

This week we have "Meet the Fockers" for you. 

Hee Hee.  I had fun naming this image.  If you don't get the pun, I explain it on Naomi's blog.  As for card ideas, there's a plenty.  I've created an encouragement card.  Two other friends that I roped in to helping out  graciously offered to assist me, came up with different ideas on how to use this image. 

Here is the front of my card...

Here is a closer look at that cute image...

Here is the inside....

Here are the card details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

Digital Image:
  • Meet the Flockers (front):  As mentioned, this image is available as a freebie this week over at Creative Bug on the Loose.  Get it while you can because it will be gone by next Tuesday.  
    • I used Copics to colour the birdsBodies: Y11, Y13, Y15.  Beaks & feet:  Y17, YR04, YR07.  Hair bow: B32, B34, B39.
  • I was lucky enough to find a really cool pattern for the clouds online at a neat site called Webtreats, Etc.
Digital Sentiments:
  • Front and inside sentiments:  Ones I created.
Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Designer Papers:  The DP used in making this card are from Recollection's Bold & Basic Paper Pad.
  • Shadow in behind the sentiments is Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Cape Cod.
  • Shimmery shadow in behind image on front is Michael's openstock scrapbook paper.
Challenges I hope to enter include:
Some more challenges may be added to this list later this week and/or month.

In order to take advantage of this week's free digi stamp, 'Meet the Fockers', head over to Creative Bug on the Loose and follow the instructions on how to grab it.  While you are over there, don't forget to check out the wonderful cards created by Ike and Vicky using this week's freebie along with all the great digis Naomi has available in the store for purchase. If you have the chance, please leave her a little love tooShe could definitely use some right now.

I've caught the bug,

Until next time,

Note: I apologize if there are any formatting issues.  This is a scheduled post and we all know Blogger has a mind of it's own.  If it turns out that something looks wonky, i.e.--part of the sentence is a different size, font, or colour than the rest, I'll fix it as soon as I'm able to.
