Caught a Bug?

Today's Paper Smooches card features Helping Hands, Healthy Vibes and the giveaway of the day, Primary! Be sure to leave a comment on the Paper Smooches Blog for a chance to win this fabulous set. To create this card, I used one of the 'thumbs up' hand from Helping Hands and cut it to insert the spoon which was reverse stamped using another Paper Smooches CHA release which you will be seeing at the end of the month. Are you excited?! They're all must-haves. :) The spoon, germ and sentiment are all from Healthy Vibes, one of the Kismet Collection stamp sets. I inked the rings from Primary with watermark ink to create a border on the ivory cardstock as well as the soft stone cardstock. The blue strips were left uninked. Again, be sure to stop by the Paper Smooches Blog today and every weekday this month and leave a comment for your chance to win at least one of the CHA releases!!
