First Bug of the Season

OK, this is a little weird, but today I had the first bug of the season splat on my windshield.  It was a little bit exciting, especially since the sun was shining as I was driving down the freeway.  (Yes, I am easily amused.)  The odd thing was that about 1 minute earlier, it was hailing and raining hard.  Strange weather in Seattle.

So, I'm inspired to post a "bug" card - in honor of the occasion.  

Card by Betty Stevenson

What I like about this card, is it's a great way to use up scraps, and little pieces of paper that you have hanging around.  In fact, I don't usually keep papers that are only 1/4" wide.  I'd be overflowing with them!  The stamp set is called Bee Happy.  You can't tell very well in the picture, but the bee is colored with a Vanilla Cream marker.  It's simple; I like it.

I hope a bug splats on your windshield soon, wherever you are!  :)
