Alota New Stuff Goin' On

Yesterday was a very busy and hectic day for me. Despite that, I was able to create a total of 3 cards! I never get to create that many in one day. Here are 2 of the 3 cards that I made to share with you today. They are both cards made with stamps from Alota Rubber stamps. I love these cute little bugs!

This first card is made with the stamp called Cutting Rose Bugs. This was a fun image to color and can be used for any occassion. This would make a great card for Mother's Day or a thinking of you card.
This is a close up of the bugs, and that I have added shimmerz to their wings to shine. I have also airbrushed the sky in the background as well as the grass.
My next card features another new stamp from Alota called The Sterner's. Here are those cute bugs again, and this time they are welcoming a brand new baby to the world. =) I decided to make this a card for a boy since one of my co-workers is expecting and will be having a boy!
Baby cards are another kind of card that is great to have a stash of.
Hope you're having a wonderful day!! Please scroll down to see the rest of tiday's
