Fabrika Fantasy Easter Bunny Card

 Hello and Happy Easter!  Ok, it's not quite Easter.  But I'm sure it will be here in no time considering my days just seem to blur into the next and before you know it, an entire month is over.

Anyway, I'm here to share a card for the January Corrosive Challenge Blog: Anything Goes

 My card features the adorable Easter Bunny by Fabrika Fantasy colored with Copics, and using up my paper stash (a goal this year).  Another completely flat creation to make it post office friendly (another goal).  The sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.

Since I sent out ZERO Christmas cards in 2020, I'm hoping to make up for it with Easter and Valentine cards.  So at least I have a jump start on one card so far.

I hope you join in for the month long challenge if you can.  Thank you for taking a look at my latest creation.  Have a wonderful day!

This meets the following challenges:  Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, Gem of a Challenge: Anything Goes, Crafty Calendar Challenge: Make it Cute, and Creative Fingers: Anything Goes.

Hedgehog Birthday Card

 Hello and happy new year!

I'm starting this year off with a card for the 11th Annual Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Bash at Catch the Bug blog!  All week long, there are challenges and lots of inspiration at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.

Today's challenge is Bingo!  My bingo is Die Cut/Bugaboo Image/3 layers.  I colored my Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Hedgie using Copics and fussy cut.  My card is completely flat - something I'm going for this year to make my cards post office friendly.  I didn't add too much more other than a sentiment from Stampin Up's Special Someone set - using my Misti mini.  Thought I would throw that in there since I got one for Christmas!  Nifty little tool indeed.

So, that is my first share for 2021.  I hope you enjoy it and join along with all the challenges.  Thank you so much for taking a peek at my first creation this year.

This meets the following challenges:  The Sisterhood of Crafters: Die Cuts (or Embossing Folders), Digi Choosday: Anything Goes (Plus they are having a DT Call), Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Always Fun: Something New (Misty Mini).

Rustic Reindeer Bugaboo Stamp Christmas Cards

 Hello and wow, just a couple more days until Christmas.  I'm one of those who shops early, has all the presents wrapped and cards out in the mail.  This year, well, not so much has been accomplished.  This will be the first year since I can remember that I will not be sending out cards to my entire list.

I did manage to make a few reindeer cards for the Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Photo Challenge:

 I'm featuring the reindeer from Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Trio Block.  I was inspired by a card on Instagram I saw quite a while back, but I don't know how to find it again to give proper credit.  I felt the design was just perfect and tried my best to recreate what I remembered.

 I used a stencil and white ink on kraft - trying to be a little more adventurous with my backgrounds, a Spellbinder flourish die, and papers from Stampin Up.  I think they have a bit of a rustic look to them.

Anyway, there is still plenty of time to enter all the challenges at Catch the Bug Blog!

Thank you for taking a peek at my cards today and have a wonderful week!

This meets the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: Anything Goes with a Critter, Crafty Animals: Anything with an Animal, Die Cut Divas: Anything Goes with Dies (Cuttlebug used), and Always Fun: Christmas.

Rory's Poppy Bouquet in Orange Card

 Hello and happy Hump Day.  Today I'm sharing a mid-month reminder for the current Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge.

I'm featuring Rory's Poppy Bouquet by Colour of Love.  I really enjoyed this image and didn't want too much distraction, so I left it sans sentiment.  I added a few crystals and colored with copics.

Join in if you can with Anything Goes.  The challenge runs until the end of December.  Thank you so much for taking a look and have a wonderful day! 

This meets the following challenges: A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Love to Craft: Anything Goes, Watercooler Wednesday: Anything Goes, and Digi Choosday: Anything Goes.

Reindeer Tags

 Hello all!  This week is Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug blog.  So all week long there will be challenges and lots of prizes.  I'm a little late to the party, but today I'm sharing a tag for Monday's ABC challenge (Anything But a Card).

I don't usually like ABC's but I was actually in need of a couple tags for gifts.  My tags aren't overly creative and I adore those who can put together tags that are like a gift all in itself...but I tried.

I'm featuring the reindeer from Bugaboo Stamps Cute Christmas Tag Set.  Using a couple dies, pop dots, wiggle eyes, and twine, I think these came out ok.  And this year, I'm blessing everyone with lotion!  I don't know about you, but with all the hand washing and extra dishes, the skin on my hands is dry and looking much older than usual - so hopefully my recipients appreciate it as well.

So visit Catch the Bug to enter one or all of the current challenges for a chance to win Bugaboo Stamps!

Thank you for taking a look and hope all is well.

Turtle Thanksgiving Card

 Hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I am here to share a card for the latest Catch the Bug Challenge:  Thankful.

I'm featuring Turtle Thanksgiving from Bugaboo Stamps.  I have a simple layout trying to use up some much older papers.
I've added glaze, popped up the sentiment, and added several die cuts from Little B and My Favorite Things.  I hope you get a chance to join in this week's challenge!  Thank you so much for taking a look.

Bugaboo Teddy Bear Birthday Card

 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.

I think these 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.

 I added a birthday die cut sentiment inside and added touches of glaze to noses and bugs.

So join in this week if you get a chance for the super easy anything goes challenge.  Thank you for stopping by!
