ATC’s with a bug theme………

My Saturday ATC group exchange involved a bug theme this month- any bug you wanted to create with.  I am guessing the butterfly is the #1 choice of ‘bugs’……… Here is my ATC

Background Pop by the Technique Junkies
Stamps FCD and smARTworks
About 1/2 of the ATc creators make all of the same design (like me), and the other half make them all different…….  Here are the ATC’s I exchanged for:

*We arrived home from Ohio last night – a fun family time vacation!  Today, I stamped my ATC’s (made a few for the Technique Junkies too….)  and went to the exchange and then went to dinner with friends.

I will be visiting blogs tomorrow- thanks to everyone that has stopped by while I was away and for all of the kind comments you leave on my blog- I appreciate it!
Have a great weekend- stay cool!

Well your ATC is lovely and so are the ones you received. I love butterflies and it is hard to think of them as bugs!

Hey chick. I just had to stop back by and say congrats on your featured techniques for TJ!! I just hopped over tonight and took a look at it. I still haven't taken to the time to try one single technique yet. I guess that means I'm not a junkie, teehee. Thanks so much for adding my blog candy on your side bar! I have you entered 4 times so far! Have a great weekend!
