Doing the happy dance! - BUGS!

I'm doing the happy dance on multiple levels tonite! First, I just finished my taxes! CAN I GET A WOOOooo HOOOOooo!!!!!! Secondly, the
"Bugs Life" Crafty Secret stamp set arrived on my doorstep! I have been DYING to ink these guys up! I can't even tell you how much I'm freaking out over the graphics on these stamps! They are the cutest!!!!

I played in Beate's sketch challenge this weekend, so most of the layouts of these cards are based on Beate's sketch HERE. I used Crafty Secrets' new "Flourishes" set for the cool black swirls. I swear, I never get tired of swirls. I'm in crank 'em out mode, because I'm short on thank-you cards. I typed up the "doing the happy dance" sentiment on my computer, because most of the sentiments in the bug's life set centered around 'celebrate' or what's the buzz...ADORABLE sentiments for sure! I wanted to use them for thank-you cards, though, so I thought "doing the happy dance" would coordinate with "thank you", which is printed in the middle of the card (off of my computer). Paper is from Eclectic Paperie (My Mind's Eye Out & About.
I also wanted to follow up and say THANK you to the 4 sweet girls who have nominated me as an "EXCELLENT" blogger! The sweeties are Carrie from pinkadoo, Suzy from Paper Monkey, sweet Camipink Turnbow & awesome Bethie Silaika from Freckled Fun Designs! Their blogs are OVER THE TOP excellent....make sure to check them out and drool when you have time!

I'm going to nominate some excellent bloggers myself...these girls have all just started blogging and they are all over the top UNBELIEVABLE~ check out my EXCELLENT choices!
