Cutie Patootie

, German Phrase of the Day: Es war ein unglaubliches Feiern. = It was an unbelievable party. Did everyone have fun last night? I can't believe I had to miss most of it...but you don't wanna see me on 3 hours of sleep right before I have to get on a VERY long plane ride with my 5 year old alone. So...what did I miss?!?!?

First off...the Bon-Bon's winner is Karen! She made this beautiful card!! Karen, send me an email and let me know if you'd like the Wade E. Bug or Lovebugs sets along with your address and I'll ask Christie to send it out to you!

Today's card features Wade's little cutie patootie on her own. I was able to easily ink her up without inking him to stamp on this precut circle I had leftover from my December MFT box. Doesn't she look so shy and demure? But you know underneath the coyness there's a bug who knows what she wants, just like my little bug! Speaking of her...she just might be getting this little Valentine...I know she'd love it!

As I usually do I stamped with Palette Noir on a precut circle, then I colored her in with my aquapainter and watercolor wonder crayons. At least until I have my prismacolor pencils, I would just die if someone took my crayons away from me! I put some stickles on her flowers to make them sparkle.

The designer paper is from the SU! Winter Brights SS Kit, and the card base is a 4.25" by 8.5" piece of Real Red CS. The ribbon is May Arts pink polka dotted organdy. Lastly, I stamped the greeting from an MFT set...I just love Kim's fonts!

I hope you enjoy this one...I'll have my Prettie Girl challenge card from 2 weeks ago posted here tomorrow. Not sure if it made it to Canada yet, but Christie just may not get a surprise when it does finally arrive!

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Lovebugs from Paper Pretties
CS: Watercolor, Real Red, winter brights ss kit

Ink: Palette Noir, Real Red

Acc: sponge, aquapainter, WWC, ribbon, stickles



  1. Fantastic card! That little image is adorable.

  2. I have not had much time to visit your blog but I made the time today. Oh my gosh!!!! *All* of the cards that you have made in the past couple of weeks are all wonderful. Your work is just beautiful. I will make it a point to stop at your blog more often. Love your cards Jana.


  3. Just darling, Jana! I love her by herself! So cute!

  4. Wow, Jana, thanks so much for picking me! I had such trouble with that card, that I have made another in the colours to challenge myself again!
    I'll email you my address and choice (Lovebugs, as my DD is a ladybug freak)!
    Doin' my happy happy happy dance!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
