Under the Sea with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Saturday!  At Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, the DT is having a Birthday Bash!  So all week long, there will be lots of inspiration and plenty of challenges to enter!  We are kicking off the celebration with an Under the Sea Birthday Photo Inspiration (please see blog for photo).
I'm featuring a couple Bugaboo stamps from the AKV Under the Sea Mini Set.  I even went out of my comfort zone with a shaker card!!  It's a simple design, but hey, I tried!  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  So join Catch the Bug all week long for inspiration and challenges!

House Mouse Lovin

Hello all and Happy Hump Day!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day Card.
I was able to use my new banner dies (I would make these with my cutter and scissors, but they were always lopsided, so I finally broke down and purchased the Sizzix set!).  I also thought I'd join a new challenge, the House Mouse challenge - since I'm always admiring Sue's Stamping Stuff's beautiful creations.  Hopefully this year will be a year of creation for me (as well as decluttering, quality time with girls, and continued healing).

Thank you for stopping by today!  This meets the following challenges: House Mouse Challenge: New/Anything Goes (I'm using a new die set), Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Always Anything Goes.

Birthday Bird 2017 with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and happy 2017!!  Wow...I remember when I was young, thinking "I'll never make it to the year 2000."  Of course, I was still considerably young in 2000, but at the time, it just seemed so far away.

Some of my favorite questions from my kids:
When you were young, was everything in black and white? (after seeing a black and white movie)

I've been meaning to ask, what is that? (pointing to a telephone/landline jack in the wall)

How old were you when Jesus was born?

Why doesn't this phone work?  Answer: because that's a calculator.

Why didn't you get your first (cell) phone until you were in your 20's?!  Answer: because that's when they were invented (responding to 9 year old begging for her first cell phone).

What's a card catalog?

So how does it work? (looking at an old phone book)

Anyway, on to today's share.  Today at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, the year is starting off with an Anything Goes creation:
I'm starting my year with birthday cards!  I'm featuring the cute Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Bird.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin.  Again, the challenge is anything goes - super easy - so join in this week at Catch the Bug if you can!  I wish you all a very happy new year.  Thanks for stopping by.

Stella Sled with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and welcome to the new week.  Just a couple more weeks to the big day!  My girls are so excited - we started the Elf on the Shelf this year, and it's so amusing to hear them giggle with delight each morning they find her.  Anyway, today I'm sharing a card for this weeks challenge at Catch the Bug: Make us Laugh!
Of course I HAD to go with Stella and lots of dies - at least to me, this is a lot (and I finally got to use my "hill" dies once again that I received from a dear online friend).  The sentiment comes with the Bugaboo Stamps Stella Christmas Sled image.  So, join us if you can!
