Love Bugs

The fireflies and jar in the Hero Arts’ Picnic set reminded me of the first time I ever saw fireflies when I was on summer holidays in New York years ago - I thought they were fascinating and so cool!

Love Bugs
Stamps (Hero Arts) – Picnic & Small Variety Alphabet

I stamped the jar and fireflies and as I wanted to make a mini jar card, enlarged the image on a photocopier. Then I adhered the image to a piece of folded card and cut through the layers to form the front and back of the card. After a little bit of colouring, I added some stickles and punched hearts. The sentiment was stamped on a punched tag.

I'm submitting this card into Stamp It! Cards Love Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World , the current Hero Arts Challenge, and Paper Crafts' July Gallery Challenge.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

So sweet! Cute to have those fireflies in love. We were camping last week and my girls had so much fun capturing (and releasing) them.

Darling card, Heather - what beautiful shading on your jar and I love the stickles on the lid. So clever to make love bugs!!

Oh Heather, this is just too cute & just perfect for the summer challenge. I agree with Lin about this being a winner! I haven't seen fireflies in years, probably b/c I'm tucked away in the house by the time it's dark.

What a fun shaped card, Heather - filled with lots of memories of my childhood in the eastern US where fireflies fly! Love the sparkle you added to this great design, too.
