Going on a Bug Hunt!

This image from Designed2Delight called Bug Hunt totally makes me smile. It fit right in with the theme of the first VSN challenge on Friday night: Nature.

I'm not really an outdoorsy kind of girl, but my hubby and kids are. They were so captivated by a frog my hubby caught last weekend while mowing the lawn. Ewww, was my opinion. And I bet you can guess what I said when they wanted to keep it! LOL, no way. He was set free, I told them his mother probably missed him.

If you have a chance, check out this week's progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration. And don't forget to drop by CDAC and see the challenge Designed2Delight is hosting, (it comes with a free image)!

Your card is so beautiful!! This post made me smile--so far this summer we have had a "pet" snake, salamander, and lots of crayfish and snails. I draw the line with slugs. Yuck!

I'm not outdoorsy either but having a boy I better be LOL I love this card especially since my son is so into bugs right now.

he-he-he, I'm not outdoorsy kind of girl either! I work in my garden on Saturdays and that's enough. I get freaked out when I see bugs crawling and things like that :)
Really cute card - I love the way you colored the sky (I always have issues with that)
