All is Calm Gift Card Holder

Hello all and Happy Friday.  Today I'm sharing a card I made with one of those gift card centers featuring Doodle Pantry's All is Calm:
I made a few of these for the librarians - Sprout calls them her teachers, and they deserve that title because she goes weekly to story time and arts and crafts.  We really do have great libraries and librarians.  Since I needed four of these, I went with a really simple layout.
It's hard to see the insert, but I really like the way these open up so the card pops right up.  I think it's much more fun than just putting the card inside.  So that's it for today.  I hope to be back soon to regular posting!  This meets the following challenges: Crafts Galore Encore: Anything goes, Divas by Design: Anything goes, Little Red Wagon: Christmas, and The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes.

Penguins and Snowmen with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Friday!  This week at Catch the Bug, there are several "mini challenges" going on.  Check out the Blog for all the details!!  Since I'm running late, I'm featuring a card for yesterday's challenge: Christmas Critters:
I thought this Bugaboo Stamp Duo Penguin Tree was perfect for a card to "Grandma" from my girls.  The layout is Splitcoaststampers SC188.  And here is a card for today's challenge: Clean and Simple:
Oh how I love me some CAS cards!  I picked this Two Snowman image to go to my brother and nephew.  So you still have time to play along!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Skelekinz Christmas with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello and welcome to day two of Catch the Bug's Christmas Chaos.  Today's event is a sketch:
I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps' Skelekinz Merry Christmas for my non-traditional goth card - for Beanie this year.  Hopefully she won't wonder if mama was drinking it up when I made this - I always try to fit my cards to the girls' personalities at the time.  So stop by Catch the Bug for all the fun going on this week.

Christmas Cactus with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Friday.  Today I'm sharing a new release from Doodle Pantry - Christmas Cactus.
Now, I'll be honest, this was a 20 minute card.  But those are actually my favorite kinds to make.  But what makes this so easy is the beautiful coloring of the images at Doodle Pantry.  Anyway, I've been so busy lately with sick kids, being sick myself, finals, and work, that this will be yet another short post.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Bee Well with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I'm sharing another Doodle Pantry card featuring the Circle Something Set:
Aren't these bees just the cutest!  I printed 3 different sizes (precolored), and added glaze and glitter to the wings.  Super quick and simple.  Hope you like my get well card!  Have a wonderful Monday!

Thanksgiving Turkey with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello and Happy Saturday!  This week, the challenge at Catch the Bug is a photo inspiration (please check the site for the photo):
Yup, it involves turkey!  Know what?  I personally love turkey.  And I can't wait for turkey leftovers either!!  I'm also giving my new-ish spellbinders another try.  I think this one is more of a success - but to be honest, I really needed to concentrate on how I wanted it to look.  And my image is Bugaboo Stamps' AKV Thanksgiving Turkey.  Bean pointed out that I should have stamped "gobble" twice. I agree, but it was too late.  Oh Well.
