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!

Snowman Gift Card Holder with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Thursday!  Well, not so happy in my household since Sprout has yet another cold...but lets not dwell on that.  Instead, I would like to share an old but still much loved Bugaboo Stamp creation:
This is made from a little white paper bag (I have several from years ago that I've been meaning to put to good use) and features Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Trio Blocks.  There are two pockets.
One pocket is for the gift card, and the other is for a personalized note.  I'm trying to make gift cards more "fun" this year.  So, that's all for me today.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Snowman Envelope with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing an "ABC" - Anything But a Card.  I like to do my Christmas shopping early, as well as have things "wrapped" as soon as possible.  I know it looks like a card but....
Well, nowadays you can order a gift "card" online that is actually a piece of paper you print out.  So how do you make a cute little gift card holder for a piece of paper?  You can easily put it in a card or a plain envelope....but I thought I'd jazz up an envelope instead.
So just another idea on gift giving.
I'm featuring the adorable Bugaboo Stamps' Cute Snowman.  The plan is to present this with a container of cookies.  So, that's all for me.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

Yellow Flowers with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello and guess what?  It's the last Saturday of September!  I really don't understand where the days go!  So I'm sharing a card for this weeks challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, which is a photo inspiration (please see blog for photo).
I'm CASE-ing the lovely Cely and featuring Bugaboo Stamps Flower Teapot to pop up when you open the card.
Trying to show a little dimension - these cards are hard to photograph!
And the outside I left as simple as possible, going along with Cely's card of CAS and flowers in the upper left.  This hopefully has already reached it's destination.  So I got a little out of my comfort zone, but really enjoyed putting this together.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I'm sharing my card with the following: Crafting With Friends: Anything GoesDaring Cardmakers: Inspired by Another (Cely), Crafty Girls Creations: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Always Anything Goes.

Pet Rock Day with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Hump Day!  My girls think I'm crazy because each Wednesday I wake them up, using my best "camel voice" (yes, I have a camel voice), saying "It's Hump Day!."  Hopefully they will cherish these memories and understand why I'm such a nut when they have their own little beasties.

Anyway, today I'm sharing a card for a fun little thing we do at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog where we celebrate little-known holidays.
I'm celebrating Pet Rock Day which was on September 4 - but you can still celebrate if you missed it!  Who doesn't love their Pet Rock?  My card is actually for my big brother who is turning 47 tomorrow!  I know it's a cute girl, Bugaboo Stamps' Scene It You Rock digi, but I was trying to go masculine.  So pull out those pet rocks and celebrate!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
