It’s Tuesday and the beginning of a new cue word challenge over at CASology!

I first thought of all the cute, cuddly critters that are out there in the world, but just couldn’t seem to settle on one, so finally took off in a little different direction!  I love watching those furry little caterpillars that can be seen as summer comes to a close and fall approaches.  I call them “furry,” but I suppose some people might find them more “fuzzy.”  I remembered I had a little worm image from Paper Smooches, which was rather convenient since they are this week’s CASology sponsor!

Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Smarty Pants)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white), SU cardstock (Basic Black)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  star gemstone, Copic markers, red glitter glue

I added a little “fur” to the caterpillar in addition to some red glitter glue to his glasses and some Crystal Effects to his lenses.  I figured a star gemstone would glam things up a bit too!  Here is a close up of the glasses in all their sparkling, shiny glory:

I hope you’ll join us this week!  The design team and guest designer have provided some wonderful inpiration on their blogs, so be sure to visit them!  Then, don’t forget to link up your own furry creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!
