Mustache Birthday with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring Doodle Pantry's Mustache Mish Mash, Mustache Messages, and Hats and Things:
I was going for masculine.  I think this will be heading to Colorado for my brother's birthday.  Anyway, have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Mouse with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Monday!  This week at Catch the Bug, the challenge is Bingo!  I'm going with: Bugaboo Image, Kraft Paper, Die or Punch.
I'm featuring Christmas Mouse Ornaments from Bugaboo Stamps, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.  That's all for now while I play catch up.  Oh!  But I must also share that today is Beanie's first day of 2nd grade!
My sweet, sweet Bean.

Baby Blog Hop with Catch the Bug

Hello all and Happy Saturday!  Thanks so much for stopping by today as it is a special day.  We are celebrating our Bugaboo Design Team Member Min!  Min and her DH are expecting a little bundle of joy, very soon, and hopefully this surprise blog hop will put a smile on their faces!  If you came from Laurie's blog, you are on the right path.  If you just came to visit little ol' me, I hope you will hop with us from the Beginning!
I'm featuring Baby Cow Moon on my CAS card - on it's way to you Min!  Here's the fun part: share a piece of wisdom!
  • I have learned, having two little girls, that I cannot shape them into what I want them to be, I can only guide them to be polite, kind, caring, and loving.  Other than that, they have their own personalities (some are stronger than others), and I have to accept who they are, love them for who they are, and pray that God will protect them and watch over them when I cannot.
So, congratulations, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your baby girl.  They grow up so fast, so don't ever miss an opportunity to cuddle, listen, teach, and learn.  The laundry and dishes will eventually get washed.  Let your smile be her number one memory, not your backside as you clean your house.

Oops, that was two pieces of advice.  So, if you are hopping, your next stop is Mari!

Big Truck Birthday with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Welcome to August!  Time is flying by!  Today I want to share a Doodle Pantry New Release - Big Trucks:
Yes, non traditional indeed.  It wasn't my intent.  I really was going for masculine...but failed.  But hey, there are plenty of female truck drivers out there right?  Right?!  Anyway, also want to remind you that the new challenge is also starting at the Doodle Pantry Blog.  Short and sweet today.  Thanks for stopping by.  I sure do appreciate your visit!

Christmas Chili's with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing another Christmas Card using Doodle Pantry's Chili Peppers:
I made a couple of these for out of towners.  Now, let me tell you what our state question is (every state has a question - do you know yours?):
Red, Green, or Christmas?
So this is perfect!!  Especially since chili is so important to us culturally.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.

Beach Girl with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Saturday!  This week's challenge at Catch the Bug is a photo inspiration, so I'm showing off Bugaboo Brats Isabella Beach to go along with the beach theme:
OK, to be honest, I think her ball looks like a watermelon and I should have gone with a completely different color!  Oh well.  The shell and starfish are from Create A Critter at 3/4" and 1", and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Tall Elephant with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  Today I'm sharing another card for my Auntie who is only with us for a short time.  I've been visiting and sending a couple cards a month, just to try to brighten her days.  I also make her cookies regularly!
Anyway, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the current challenge at Fab n Funky: Walk on the Wild Side.  I figure this adorable Elephant from Doodle Pantry's Tall Trio.  I'm using the colored version and papers.  Simple layout to make sure it goes through the mail smoothly.  This also meets the following challenges: Creatalicious Challenges: Monochrome, Eureka Stamps: Monochrome, and That Craft Place: Anything Goes.
