Hello all you lovely readers that have taken precious minutes out of your schedule to pop over and check out this Saturday's sneak peek.  It is the final one for the Summer Bug Brigade so without further ado, here is a little looky loo at the freebie for this coming Tuesday...

Summer Bug Brigade: Another Bug is Born

What's the BUZZ peeps?  You guys are going to bug out over Naomi's newest release.

Ladybug Layover

You are going to want to make a BEE-line for the STORE and add this one to your bug collection!

This lady and her baby have been flying all night.  They are on their way back home from visiting family out east.  However, there is still some distance to go which means a layover is necessary before proceeding.  I spotted them out in our yard and just had to take a snapshot.  They are very photogenic don't you think?  These two can stay in my yard anytime they want!  Did you know that ladybugs eat aphids and other bad garden pests? You definitely want them around.

Suze from Craftysuze created this sweet card to help inspire you all...

Don't these two look as snug as bug in a rug?  This mother baby duo is just so sweet and Suze has done a great job showcasing them.

Jennifer from Krafty Keepsakes was able to help out and created this tag...

This tag is cute as a bug's ear. Another sweet creation showcasing Naomi's newest image.

We are lucky that Queen Bee Naomi had a little time this week to create using Ladybug Layover.  So let's check out her bugalicous card...

Totally awesome work don't you think?  How about we take a closer peek at that wonderful spray of matching flowers and the intricate design of the diecut she used...

 Just stunning!

Thanks so much to our wonderful unofficial design team and of course our incredible artist herself for helping me have something to show all you lovely readers.

Sneak peek guesses...

We had two guesses this week.  Both of them had part of it correct.

The part Ike had right was that it was a baby bug riding on its mama's back and Stephanie nailed the type of bug with her guess that it was a ladybug.  Well done ladies.  I have a special 'Ladybug Hugs' sentiment for you.  Just email me by clicking HERE with the subject heading 'Ladybug Hugs Sneak Peek' to get your special treat.

How would you like the opportunity to win a copy of this sweet duo?

It is time once again to try and give away a few copies of this sweet new release.  To be eligible, just leave me a comment letting me know what you think of Naomi's newest imageLadybug Hugs would be adorable on any card and definitely bring a smile to the recipient, so what is stopping you from entering!

Winners will be announced on August 8th, when it will be time for the next new release!!!!

Which brings me to the winners of the last new release.  We had eight people link up their names and seven of them were actually followers so I have decided to award three copies of Cowbee Greetings.  That makes your odds almost 1 in 2!

Drum roll, please....BBBbbbrrrrrrrrr pish

Kim AKA AngelDevilDog


Please contact me by clicking HERE with the subject heading 'Cowbee Greetings Winner' to get your copy of Naomi's sweet image.

I'll BEE back next week with the last of the Summer Bug Brigade.  Hope to see you all on Saturday when we take a sneak peek.  I wonder what it could possibly BEE?

Why can’t a ladybug hide?

Because it is always spotted!
