Catch The Bug Challenge – Feeling Punchy!

This weeks challenge at Catch The Bug is all about digging out those punches, and using them on your cards or projects.  If you are anything like me I’m sure you have tons of them!

KPT Hat Boy

The image I used for my card is Kid Pocket Topper - Hat Boy.  I colored the skin and hair with copics, but paper pieced the shirt and hat with some scraps of designer paper.  I used the Martha Stewart Checker Board Punch for a border.  The designer paper is by 3 Bugs In A Rug.

I hope you’ll join us again this week for our challenge, maybe you’ll be the lucky winner of some gorgeous Bugaboo Stamps!  Good luck!
