Bear Meets Mosquito

So, yesterday I showed you my first creation with Under the Stars. I mentioned that one of the reasons I bought the set was for the mosquito. Here, in Texas, we have big mosquitos and yes, I know other areas do to but I swear this year the mosquitos are the size of small aircraft! To top it off I think they are waiting outside the door for me and pounce as soon as I walk out. I've had bites before, but not like this year! Anyway, I had this card in my head from the minute I saw the set but just had to figure out how to get it on to paper. I'm pretty pleased with the results. I guess this kind of falls under the "not so nice" category especially since the mosquito seems to be enjoying himself a bit too much! I did two versions, hope you like them!

Hi Sharon, I didn't realize you were in Texas! Me, too, and it's definitely mosquito bite season! Love your blog, TFS.

I've just found your blog and love it! AND I love this stamp set and it should be here any day now!
I was going to use it with some camping scrap booking pages. :) But your cards are so cute too!
