Thinking Owl Die Cut Card

Hello and hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It was my first weekend in a long time I didn't sleep most of it away!  So I got a few things done, including this card using the latest Paper Play Sketch:
Unfortunately, a young woman at my church is going through a rough time, so I'm putting together a little basket on behalf of the church and this card to go along with it.  The owl is from Cricut Paisley Cachemire, and the sentiment is from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

This will also be entered in the following: Crafting With Friends: Anything Goes, and Simply Papercraft: Anything Goes.

Bugaboo Christmas Tags

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful week!  As for me, been busy with work, VBS, and trying to catch all the back to school sales.  I probably spend more in gas going from store to store just to get pencils and crayons for 25cents each.

Anyway, Christmas in July is still in full swing at Catch the Bug.  Monday was ABC day (Anything But a Card) - but you have until tomorrow to enter ANY of the challenges.
I made a couple very quick tags - using non-traditional colors and paint samples from Home Depot (that have been lying around for a few years).  So, this is just a reminder to enter any or all challenges by tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Teal Snowman Fancy Fold Christmas Card

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a card to kick off the Christmas in July Celebration at Catch the Bug Blog!  All week long there will be mini-challenges and today's challenge is Sparkle & Shine!
I'm featuring the snowman from the Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Blocks Digi Stamp set.  So there are three adorable images - and I enlarged it and used just the snowman.  I used sequins for the sparkle, and if you look closely, I added a little shine to his nose and hat.
Not only that, but I even made this a fancy fold!  I saw this on pinterest and just HAD to try it for myself.  Super simple and I think it really adds interest.  Plus it got me out of my usual rectangle rut for a brief moment.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  So join us all week long with lots of inspiration and chances to win Bugaboo Stamps.

Picking Flowers with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and happy Saturday!  The current challenge at Catch the Bug is: Outdoor Fun.
For me, my idea of outdoor fun is gardening.  I feel every year I learn a little bit more and hopefully some day I will have successful flower and vegetable gardens.  I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Ava Flower Patch - with the sentiment from a Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin kit. So join in if possible this week!
