Bugs and Hugs card made using the Creative Cards cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card made using the Creative Cards cartridge and a Close To My Heart stamp set called Bugs and Hugs. I just love this stamp set! It is just too cute!

The little bugs on this card are stamped in black ink and then I colored them with a little bit of a twilight marker and added some black pearls on the body. They turned out pretty good I think!

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
