Dragonflies are one of those bugs that no one seems to mind if they are around. As I was beginning to write this blog post, I realized that I haven’t seen any dragonflies at our cottage. That is kind of weird since they like to hang out around water. I’ll have to do a little research and find out why.
Edited: Well, Dragonflies do live near the water. They actually start their lives in the water. Adult dragonflies usually only live a month but some species live up to six months. They eat mosquitoes (which is why we all love them). If you want to find out more about them you can click HERE. I still don’t know why there aren’t any around here but that is research for another day!
I made this card using the stamp set called Dragonfly Dreams. It has a set of matching Thinlits called Detailed Dragonfly. Unfortunately, this set was released in a prior year so there is no Bundle Bonus. In case you were wondering, Stampin’ Up! offers Bundles on matching stamp sets and dies the first year they are out. After that, they are only sold separately. If you like a Bundle, buy it before you are not able to.
One of my favorite this about this set is the cute little Dragonfly die I used above. All those dragonflies are attached together with one die. They are adorable, aren’t they? I cut these out using Silver Foil Paper. I thought it added a nice little sparkle to the card.
