Bitten by the Bug...

... a Mima Bug to be exact!! Have you seen Kirsty Wiseman's new Buglet range? They are super cute and come in both digi and polymer cling stamps. There are also some very fabby sentiments to co-ordinate with the Buglets. Have a peeksy over HERE.. you won't be able to resist. Don't say I didn't warn you. I accept no responsibility for enabling... I have a hard enough time from stopping myself.

Of course Mima is just my very favourite {at the moment!!}. How sweet is she?!.. and her little teddy.. cuteness overload!!


I've been on a mission to use up scraps of papers and half used paper pads that are fast taking over my stash area and these Papermania papers have been sitting here, unloved,  for.ev.er!! I matted them with blue and pink cardstock and machine stitched them all together {saves a fortune in adhesive!!}



I trimmed Mima out and mounted her on 3D pop dots on top of a white {heart} doily. To embellish I used some Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon and pink pearls. The sentiment is by Waltzingmouse Stamps and is from the Fancy Phrases set.
