Hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am here to share a card for the latest Catch the Bug Challenge: Thankful.Turtle Thanksgiving from Bugaboo Stamps. I have a simple layout trying to use up some much older papers.

Hello and happy Saturday! No big plans this weekend, pretty much like most of 2020 since March, but that's ok. Actually, I feel like I'm busier now than I ever was before so I doubt I will have a quiet craft filled day.
Anyway, I'm just here to share a card for the current Catch the Bug challenge: Anything Goes.Teddy Bears from Bugaboo Stamps are just too adorable. This is supposed to be a masculine/little boy card, even with the bit of sparkle in the paper.
So join in this week if you get a chance for the super easy anything goes challenge. Thank you for stopping by!

Hello! It's hard to believe it is already November. Hopefully my internet will be stable enough to get this posted! I really want to share a beautiful image used for this month's Anything Goes Corrosive Challenge:
This is Sakura in March by Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and I just adore her face. I made this for a young lady who graduated high school.
I added a little dimension with the flowers and a few pearls.
That's it from me today. Thank you for taking a peek at my latest creation.

Hello all. Today I'm sharing an older yet still much loved Bugaboo Stamp at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog. I thought it was perfect for my brother's birthday.
Just a close up to hopefully see the bits of paint and glaze. That's it from me today. Thank you for stopping by, I really do appreciate every visit.

Hello and wow I think it's officially winter?? How did we completely skip fall? Anyway, once again, I'm back to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.Kimono Portrait from Star Stampz. I think I missed the mark a bit on the skin color. This is such an adorable digi so hopefully I can get in a bit of practice and give this another go. My papers are literally from Japan - a gift that I find hard to part with.
I did not include a sentiment because I really did just want for her to be center of attention. She's popped up with a few touches of glitter pen. Other than that, plain and simple. Join in this month if you can!
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.

CardzTV Stamps. Mary has a huge selection of sentiment stamps that stamp so clean and clear.
These were inspired by this card from Sandcastle Stamper. I've always had a thing for gnomes before they became popular. I had them in my gardens for years and little by little, they went to gnome heaven and I'm now left with none. Someday I'll find another that speaks to me and joins my garden family.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Hello and happy Hump Day! I have a quick share today. A couple cards made using some new Stampin Up Stamps. I'm not creating much, but for some reason, I'm still looking at catalogs - and couldn't resist getting myself something new.
My first card features Stampin Up's Cute Fruit set.
My second card features Stampin Up's Special Someone set. This is a double stamp sort of set where you stamp the main image (in black) and then the "fur" is a separate solid stamp.
I couldn't handle the flat colored "fur" so I went in with Copics and added a little shading. The balloon shows the black outline stamp, and the inner red stamp - added a bit of glossy goodness. I feel I missed the mark on the grass and clouds (hadn't done that in a while and obviously rusty). I still like the end product for the most part.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!
