cards, bugs and great news!

There is this disgusting and evil beetle called the Nairobi fly (Paederus crebinpunctatus) that comes around whenever it rains. It does not bite or sting but produces a very toxic liquid once it's crushed against the skin.
One of these landed on my baby's neck unknowingly and I think he may have crushed it because this morning we woke up to a horrible rash on his neck.
Moving on to other news, I have been invited to join at the sketches4all forum as a part of the DT (thanks Fia). I have a group going on (Jackie's card challenges). Here is this week's sketch.
Here is the card I made:-

  8. Hi,

  12. Oh no. Not on that cute little boy! It's called crebinpunctatus? No wonder its so nasty.

  13. aww, Willis is adorable! Such an interesting bug... I enjoyed (not sure that's the right word to use in this case) the link about it. Had never heard of it before. Who would suspect something so small could cause such problems even though it doesn't sting or bite?!

  14. Oh my goodness could that baby boy be any cuter!?!! I don't think so and I laughed at what you wrote...he does look like he is saying that doesn't he??!!

    Terrible bug.
