Giddy Bugs

Hey y'all!

It's Finally Friday, it's been when of those weird weeks in my neck of the woods. You know the 1 step forward and 5 steps back. I have not found my New Year Rhythm yet for sure. Most have been things beyond my control, but I would like to get back to some sort of routine.  Anyway, you didn't come here to listen to all that! 

I have a fun little card to share with you. 
I am longing for the day right now when I see those cute little lightning bugs again! Oh yes, the days of summer! This girl is not a fan of the cold or winter, so I needed to create something to make me smile and look forward to what's to come. I had fun mixing and piecing together the papers.  Most of them are pieces from My Mind's Eye Everyday Flair. 
I used Paper Smooches Giddy Bugs and sentiment from Good Gab. I added a length of black satin ribbon around the card front and tied in a knot finishing the ends with pinking sheers for a decorative edge. Not a lot of embellishments today, but lots of paper layers! :-) I just had a little time to play. :-)

I think I will share at Paper Smooches Sparks this week since it's Anything Goes! 
I love these gals, so I am also sharing at Just B Creative - January Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes!

I hope you like my fun little/quick make today!

Have a FABulous FrIdAy!

Cute anniversary card! I sure hope routine finds you again soon. I know EXACTLY that unsettled feeling, when you deeply desire a good rhythm to your life. I have been craving it for a few years. Much, much too long.

Although I disagree with you about the "longing for Summer", it is still hot here in CA and I wish we had just a smidgen of the cold weather people in the East are having, but I do love your card! Those lightning bugs are adorable, love the bits of glitter and all the great patterned papers you used on this one. Very cute anniversary card!

It's always a reief to read that I am not the only that is not much a fan of this time of the year. I am just a tiny step ahead of you and very slowly getting back to a routine and also some cardmaking.Pfew:) You card is cute; these cuties made me smile.

Take one step at a time; you will get back but sometimes it just takes a bit more time. Take care!

January is usually a rough month here too - and it's the things beyond your control that make it feel even tougher! I hear you :)
Your card is ADORABLE and the glittery bums? The very cutest part!
