Last Wednesday we went to City Hall for a special event Science Alliance.

Listening or TalkingA teacher who is also a scientist was telling about insects in a very special form. He was comparing them with people, their behavior, body structure and their way of living. I really liked it and I think kids enjoyed it too. The decorations were great! You can see some on the pictures. The most fun part was to try special glasses where you can see like different insects. My son also liked trying to become a grasshopper’s lunch.

This event was part of a library program called Reading Bug. I really appreciate the wonderful people at the library who are doing it for our kids. Especially Ms. Carolyn.

Bug Vision Being A Bugs Lunch

Butterfly CardTalking about insects, here are some cards I made. For the card with a butterfly I used a Heidi Grace Collection acrylic stamping set and for the butterfly image I used a stamp from Enchanted Fairies rubber-stamping set. I stamped them with golden pigment ink and then embossed with golden embossing powder. I also stamped some flowers separately and embossed them. Then I cut them, colored with markers, and attached to the main flower image with glue dots.

For the next card that I made for my Grandma I used a dragonfly sticker. The flower was made using a template from Paper Wishes designed by Susan Janes. I love those templates. They are easy and fun to use not only in card making but scrap booking also.

Flower Card Bee Happy!

A third card also was made for my Grandma. I cross-stitched a ladybug, punched some little flowers, added an embroidery thread for a stem and that’s it.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
Hope to see again,

Supplies I used for the cards: cardstock, designer paper, Fold-It Swirls template, stickers, flower punch, embossing powder, golden pigment ink, gift wrapping paper (for making a flower), embroidery floss, ribbon, stamps, Marvy Uchida Brush markers, rub-ons, glue dots.

    What great pictures…Your boy is quite handsome. I’d say, “Cute” but he might be embarrassed about that. Love the picture with the Praying Mantis bug (they are weird bugs). Looks like everyone had a great time.
