An Ant!

Hi everyone, my card today is for the Male Room Challenge, I just had to go with the critters or bugs theme and chose a bug!

I followed the sketch dated 2012 and added papers and bugs from a digi kit I had in 2013, Buggin Out by Kristin Aargard at Scraporchard. I love digi kits, everything matches without thinking. LOL.

I added the sentiment to the "ANT" which came from the kit, the ant is 3D'd, I layered all papers onto black card. The dies are Tattered Lace, in my strange thinking, I thought they could be the ant eggs? I also added "eyes" to the ant and the fly.

Seeing I am in the garden with the Ant! I thought I would show you the May tree (Hawthorn) which borders our garden, it stands out from the other trees, with so much blossom this year, so thought I would share it with you. Also the noisy baby Magpie.

I love this cute card, especially the googly eyes! Male cards can be quite a challenge can't they? Great photos too. We've got two families of Blue Tits nesting in two boxes, they are in and out with worms for the young ones now, it's lovely to sit and watch them ;o)

The card is wonderful - such fun! Your garden is looking amazing and the magpies are beautiful! We have a baby magpie too, but the local starlings are letting him know what they think of him - I almost feel sorry for him! Sorry I haven't been over enough recently. Looks like you have enjoyed some sunshine in the garden
