Bugs and Chicks

Hi everyone!  well I did get my camera fixed.  It was an annoying problem - the little door that holds the batteries in was missing a little prong and the batteries would fall out.  I taped it shut, but it wasn't enough to let the metal things make contact with the batteries.  Anyway, I'm glad it's fixed!

Here's a card I made with one of the cute fuzzy bugs in Dawn Collins's set of Fuzz Bugs.

I am not a fan of bugs, but these little critters are really cute.  I thought this one would make a good birthday card for anyone, but especially kids.  My boss's son has a birthday coming up in July and I made this one with him in mind.  It's not too girly even though it has glitter.

I'm afraid our wonderfully cool spring has come to an end and summer has moved in.  It was really hot yesterday and the forecast is for nearly 100 degrees the next three days.  I promise to try not to gripe about it too much!

Here is the promised video of the baby chicks.  I got two that are sleeping.   The larger white ones that are really fuzzy are called silkies.  If you can't see the video below, you can view it directly at Youtube HERE

Cute, cute card, Holly! I loved watching the chicks. I think it's just hilarious the way they sleep. It's almost as if they are moving around and then wham, face down and sprawled - they're asleep!
