I'm pretty sure I had a good time last night...

When Stella and Gus from Bugaboo Stamps first caught my eye, I knew I was going to be making cards with them.  I wound up being on the Bugaboo Team for several years.  I'm excited to be back creating with many of the characters that Jodie created.

I usually have a story to go with my cards. ( What inspired the card.) Here it is:  My grandfather was a doctor in a so-called "one horse town" in the South. As small as it was, there were plenty of people to fill the cells of the jail. Being concerned about these people, my grandfather (whom we called Daddy Doc) would visit the jail and offer free health care.  What I don't understand, every year the present and former "jailors" along with the officers of the law and Daddy Doc would take a huge group picture behind the jail!!! WHAT!! Go figure.  I hope I can find that pic and I will post one day.

The Stella Identity Theft image was used, along with the sentiment from Ginger's House. I cased Stamp-in-Play.  I added some keys and hooks from some old punches. I colored with copics.

I'm entering the Catch the Bug Challenge: ANYTHING GOES ( If I can't get to a computer to link my image, at least, I can give a "shout out" to Bugaboo Stamps and the fab team that help bring these awesome characters alive.)

A2, I made 4 cards with different colored dresses.  I also added clear
glitter pen to hair and purse and machine stitching.
