Bug me Anytime Challenge

(Please bear with me...I'm *attempting to* make this stay at the top of my blog post  - thus this is a repost from April 10th!)

It's my BIRTHDAY today and I've decided I'd like to get younger for my birthday this year! So if you know anybody who can arrange this...! :P Just kidding! (no. really I'm NOT!)

Today is Bugaboo Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge day! You should have arrived here from Jackie's Blog. If not, head back to the Catch a Bug Blog first to start the hop! There is a few special twists here today, so you gotta pay attention so you can collect the 1 letter you need for the word game!! 

You know the drill, you follow the rules outlined on the Bug Blog for the challenge and you win a chance at some awesome prizes. Go to the BUG BLOG and get all the yada yada yadas!  After you do what you are supposed to here and collect the letter you need, head over to Tanya's blog to continue the hop...AND the hunt!!

Here is my card for this challenge, I used one of my favorite digi's from Bugaboo Stamps, which was apropro to the challenge theme of BUGS! The little ladybug atop the turtle's back was a challenge, as I decided to try some flocking on it!  The challenges I combined in creating it are listed at the bottom of this post! Hope you like it!


...ANYWHO since it's my birthday, I want you all to celebrate it with me! For each of you who comment here, become a follower (if you aren't already), AND add your email address (so I can contact you) you will get a chance to win my BIG BIRTHDAY PRESENT! What's in it you say? Well I'd show you but that would be a waste of time - because it's a present so it is wrapped up silly! But the retail value of the goodies inside is upwards of $25.00 USD My BIG BIRTHDAY PRESENT is up for grabs for ANYONE who comments, is a follower, and gives me their contact email (that means my fellow DT buddies are eligible too!). I'll email the random winner on April 16th  to let them know they won! I'll need a response from the winner containing their snail mail address within a week or I will have to draw an alternate winner. So good luck with this drawing, and this weeks blog hop and challenge!
HY... you almost forgot this!
