I'm Buggin' Out!

Howwwwdeee!  Welcome to my Sweet 'N Sassy Tuesday!  Today, I'm sharing a fun little set that is part of this month's Sweet Perks!  It's called Get Well Critters and I have had some fun playing around with it! 

I never seem to have certain cards on hand.  Certainly "get well" cards come in handy and are a great encouragement to those who need it the most!  I'm grateful for the versatility of this set and the little "push" it has given me to build up my stock pile of cards to encourage!  Especially at this time of the year! 

Here is the full set along with the matching dies.....

I took one look at that jar and fly and just knew I had to use my shrinky dink plastic!  How cute are my little mini flies/shaker jar?  I added a few sequins, too, for some extra shaker shimmer:
I got my first set of shrinky dinks when I was a very young child---a few eons ago!  I still love to watch them shrink.  It's so cooool!  I stamped the fly first and then used alcohol markers to add the color.  You could use a variety of coloring tools, but I like the vibrant color that the alcohol markers provide.  After trimming them, I placed them, one at a time, into a tin box and cooked each with my heat tool......yes, I have no patience!

TTFN & don't forget the awesome!
