Bugaboo Santa Face Tag

Hello all!  So anyone get any really great deals the day after Thanksgiving?  I try to finish up as much shopping as possible WAY before Christmas so I can concentrate more on the Reason for the Season rather than stress about the perfect gift.
Anyway, today I'm sharing a new release at Bugaboo Stamps.  Thought I'd color him up, fussy cut, and pop him up on a tag.  The die cuts are Cuddlebug and Sizzix.  So this little lovely will hopefully adorn a handcrafted gift - my mission is more handcrafted and less credit card purchases!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful day!!

Bunny Love

Hello all.  The challenge this week at Catch the Bug is BINGO!
 I'm taking a break from Christmas cards and came up with this - using Brown, Gloss, Starts with B (Bunny):
Don't know yet if this is going to Bean or Sprout, but it's definitely for one of the girls.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC and the papers are from Shery K Designs (MyGrafico).  The adorable image?  It's called Bunny Love.
Join this week for a chance to win some Bugaboo Stamps!

This meets the following challenges:

Snowman in the Window

Hello all and Happy Monday!  Actually, Bean has a cold, but she's a trooper and hopefully will be all better by Thanksgiving.  I've been cleaning my craft room lately because I'm literally tripping over things!  I did manage to make this card in time for the Designed2Delight challenge!
Faith has a progressive challenge, so if you use the "required" stamp, she sends you next month's stamp for FREE!  It's a win-win deal since I LOVE her stamps.
Hopefully you can see the little window I made and the dimension.  I used a copic to make my white ribbon red so it would match.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.  I know yellow isn't a traditional Christmas color, but I think it came out ok.

Just a short post today.  Off to try to warm up!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Birthday Balloon Ants

Hello all and Happy Hump-Day!  Hope you're having a good week so far.  For me, pretty uneventful - which is a good thing!!

I haven't had much craft time lately, but really needed to get this card out today so hopefully it makes it's way on time.
Aren't these Balloon Ants CUTE?!  This is part of my winnings from Doodle Pantry a few weeks ago.  I'm also going to enter it into their challenge this month (you still have plenty of time to enter!!  Must use one of their images but they have plenty of FREEBIES.).
If you enter their challenge on time, you get a FULL SET for free and this months set is not only AWESOME, but perfect for us in the desert!!  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Wish Big.

This also meets the following challenges:

Lion Love

Hello and Happy Saturday.  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm taking a continuing ed class on bath and body products!  Maybe I'll learn how to make those bath bombs or chapstick or something equally fun.  Anyway, I'm here to share this weeks challenge at Catch the Bug:
This is a pretty easy one, and I just got this stamp, Lion Love, not long ago and have been wanting to use it and now is the perfect time.
I also thought the sentiment from Create with TLC was perfect.  Really CAS on this one.  I would like to learn how to color "ground" but the last time I tried, I really made a mess!  I'll keep practicing.

I'd also like to send a big THANK YOU to Cely for the gorgeous Halloween card (mine is a slightly different version).  Having one of your cards "in real life" is awesome.

Bugaboo Freebie Friday Pup

Hello all and Happy Friday!  Been a busy week for me, but it's been good.  Today I'm sharing this weeks FREEBIE FRIDAY from Bugaboo Stamps.
LOL!  Isn't he precious?  We have a little guy named Max - he's a pekingese.  He's still young and not the brightest dog we've ever had, but he sure is sweet.  Not too long ago, one of his eyes popped out!  Yup, their eye's CAN and DO pop out!  I thought it was just a story....but $500 later, I realized it's all true.
Anyway, the sentiment is from Create with TLC, and the papers are from a swap (loved the colors and patterns!).  So make sure to pick him up while you can!  Oh, of course I added googly eyes for fun!

Candy Cane Bear at Bugaboo

Hello all and Happy Tuesday!  Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe weekend.  Today I'm sharing this week's new release at Bugaboo Stamps.
Now first, I did NOT color this by hand!  I did it on the computer, just to see if I could.  It actually took more time than I thought it would, but I could see there is a learning curve, and that it's even a little fun.  So you never know, I might do more of this.

Also, I found this great TUTORIAL on this fabulous little box.  From the outside you might think: oh, another box.  But the inside is what I really liked.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Isn't that a great opening?  I was thinking I could add a little tissue paper and maybe some Hershey Kisses - because those Dove caramels are MINE!!

This project meets the following challenges:

Bugaboo Ava ATC

Hello and Happy Saturday.  This weeks challenge at Catch the Bug is:
And this is a favorite for most!
I'm using Ava - Grad Diploma for my ATC - which is a baseball card size little piece of "art."  I made these for my swap group and hope they enjoy my little creations.
Just want to show a little perspective of the size.  Coloring this small can be difficult, but it's a good kind of challenge for me to practice.  So enter with your Anything Goes creation for a chance to win!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
