Teddy Bear and Stink Bugs

Yahoo it's the weekend! Do you have any stink bugs? Omgosh I never knew what a stink bug was until last year. They are horrible and we have literally hundreds of them climbing up the sides of our home. DH was trying everything from squirting them off with a hose and then spraying bug killer which did not work. I have to tell ya this story!!We have a two story home and I kept hearing noises so I go to the bedroom window and look out and cracked up big time!! We have a hand held vacuum sweeper, the hose with the extention wands is about five feet long. Down on the deck is my hubby, 6'2 holding this little vacuum sweeper and he is swinging the wand all through the air and  he would thrust it forward like he was stabbing someone! My first thought was "what the heck is he doing?" He was trying to catch the stink bugs in mid air with the vacuum sweeper!! I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! If our neighbors were home they would have called the men with the white coats to come and get him! You just had to see it! I went to let the dogs out tonight and before I even opened the front door he was yelling for me to close it! I said; "the dogs have to pee!!" He says "go out the back door their waiting to come in the front door". "who is waiting" "the stink bugs!!" I lost it!

Dustin Pike is the artist of the image I used today.  Dustin designs for several companies and one is High Hope Stamps. I love this  teddy bear angel with the big smiling!!

I am still a guest designer at Teddy-Stampers who I love their blog for every card or project has to have a teddy bear on it! I love teddy bears big time! I collect Cherish Teddies and Boyds ceramic and stuff bears!

Tip of the day:  Did you ever cut card stock and it has a lot of little strings hanging from the side you cut? When you try to pull them off it rips your card stock. Take an emery board and go over the rough area like you would your finger nails. Poof! They're gone!!

Thank you for leaving the kind thoughts for I love reading every single one and it totally makes my days brighter! Have a great weekend my friends!

Your stink bug story totally cracked me up. We have those Asian Ladybugs (who also stink when you squish them) all over in the fall. My cat herd won't even touch them - they must taste bad as well as stick.

LOVE the card! I have several Dustin images and need to dig them out. The bears are so sweet.
