Gotta Love Gus....

I started my blog almost a year ago so that I could participate in the big birthday celebration over at Catch the Bug and it's almost that time again.. Anyhow, I decided I just couldn't put off blogging any longer because I fell IN LOVE with all of the fun characters Jodie has over at Bugaboo & because, well, it really looked like it would be fun! Gus is one of those wonderful characters that got me hooked (along w/ Stella..can't love Gus & not love Stella!)
Here is another of the co-workers b-day cards I made this week featuring Gus

so I did have to alter Gus just a little to add to the humor...the person the card is for is always wearing a cowboy hat, so I just HAD to add one, as well as color in a few chin whiskers to mirror the person it was for. The dp was from my scrap pile & I colored w/ my prisma's-except for the hat, I used my Bic markers on it.

Here is the inside.. Too fun! Everyone loved this card when they signed it!
I am entering it on these challenges:

Uh-Oh....I Frog-got

Ok so this is no laughing matter... I have been so caught up with the holidays & then trying to get myself back into some kind of normal routine & keep myself from falling into hibernation (which REALLY sounds good right about now..) that I completely forgot not 1, not 2, but 3 co-workers birthday's & it is not even quite the middle of the month! UGG! What a way to start the year! I feel so horrible! So here is the first one I made, I think that the cuteness factor made up for the tardiness... (her birthday was the 2nd)
The stamps are all from a set called Froggy2love by the The {Stamps} of Life and the sentiment on the inside is computer generated. the DP is all from my scrap pile. I just love those lil googly eyes!
