Birthday with Luck

Hello and Happy Saturday!  The challenge at Catch the Bug this week is:
ABC - Anything, Bling, Cardstock
So this seems fairly easy right?

I'm using Deacon Sitter and Clover for my main image.  Another simple layout with sewing, and of course my little touch of bling under the sentiment.  Hope you get a chance to play this week, and have a wonderful weekend!

Martian Bugaboo Freebie

Hello and Happy Friday (and Happy Good Friday to those of you who celebrate this glorious holiday).  Today I'd like to show off this weeks FREEBIE FRIDAY from Bugaboo Stamps!
I was inspired to make this swing card....I need to watch out with what inspires me!  This was a little harder to do than I thought.  At least the measuring and cutting of the inside papers.
Here's a side view to show the swing in action!  Anyway, pick up your freebie today!!

So Ducky to Have You

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Boy it's been a LOOOONG week for me.  I'm looking forward to celebrating Easter this weekend with my family.  Anyway, today I'd like to share a card I completely CASE'd from Tracy:
But I love CAS, and fell in love with the layout and didn't want to change a thing!  I'm using Fuzzy Duckling (colored version) from Doodle Pantry.  Makes me think of the Despicable Me little girl that says "it's so fluffy I could die!"  Yup, spending too much time with the kids.  Need to find some adult friends.

Hide and Seek Ladybugs

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for my mother.  All I can say is I really couldn't do it without her.
The image is from Oak Pond Creations.  It was a freebie - but not sure if it's still free or been sent to her store.  Either way, it's gorgeous.  I have the original layer, the second layer has 4 flower petals and center, and the top only has the ladybug.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.  Thanks for visiting today!

Graduation and Spring

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hello all and Happy Monday.  Got two shares today.  First is a new release from Kenny K for the Anything Goes challenge this week.

I went simple with black and white.  There are 2 great sponsors for this - so make sure to enter!

My second share is an ATC.  I was terribly sick this weekend (thanks to Beanie).  I asked for death, but God said no.  I asked to be put out of my misery, but my DH just rubbed my back.  I asked for an ambulance, but it never came.
When all was said and done, my body felt like it was hit by a train.  I could barely move, so I decided to make something small.  This is for this week's Wicked Wednesday's Spring challenge.  Tried to show the dimension, but oh well.  And the lovely image is from Designed2Delight.

Over the Rainbow

Hello and welcome.  This week, the challenge at Catch the Bug is a photo inspiration:

And I admit, these are super hard for me.  I think it's because it's left too wide open for my little brain to wrap around.
But the rainbow was my inspiration!  This isn't exactly what I had in mind, but I'm happy with it.  The rainbow is from Miss Kate Cuttables, and the sentiment is Stampin' Up's Sassy Salutations.
I think Ava looks lovely on top.  Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate it.

Felices Pascuas equals Happy Easter

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Today I'd like to share the Easter card I made for my Dad using Doodle Pantry's Lily Collection.  I flipped and rotated to have 3 flowers in different directions.
I printed them out on kraft and popped up the middle one just for a little dimension.  The scallop is from Accent Essentials, sewing, twine, and button.
The sentiment is computer generated and I'm including it in case you can use it for Spanish friends/family.  The literal translation is Happy Easter.
Just click, then right click to save.

Wild Thing ATC

Hello all and Happy Monday!  Just a quick post today of the ATC I made when I should have been working on my midterm paper.  Oh well.
My ATC uses a "sweet" little guy from the Monster Blocks Mini Set at Bugaboo Stamps.  I used some VERY bright papers, sewing, flower die, and pop dots.  I made this for the Fangs challenge at Wicked Wednesday and added the flowers for the ATC's With Attitude.
Trying to show dimension.  OK, back to finish up my "real" work.

Beanies Easter 2013

Hello all!

I finally got a chance to pull out my Cricut and make an Easter card for Beanie.  Not to get preachy, but sometimes it can be difficult keeping the true meaning of Easter in the forefront of the bunnies and chocolate, but I'm still going with "cute" this year.
Isn't she sweet?  I got her from Miss Kate Cuttables, using MTC on my Cricut and the cuts were so super clean.  I actually cut everything in white and colored the layers as needed.

Beanie came in and said "oh how cute!" and I got this disappointed look on my face and said "awww, don't look."  She said "I didn't see anything!  Nope.  I have no idea what you're working on" and walked out of my room backwards with her eyes closed.  I was thinking of putting her in a frame, to be replaced by the next card.  This way, they don't get handled (aka destroyed), and she can have them when she's older but still appreciate them now.

I shaded an extra kraft layer to be my dirt, and went crazy with pop ups.  The blue DP is supposed to be my sky.  What can I say.  I like it.  I really do.

You can get this awesome set for FREE by joining in this months Doodle Pantry challenge.  Oh darn! I forgot to take a pic of the inside, but this includes a cute sentiment: You add color to my life.

Row of Birthday Flowers

Hello and Happy Saturday!  Today at Catch the Bug, the challenge has been decided:
Now, I wasn't actually sure about how to approach this, so I went with the color green and flowers.

Hello and welcome to Oldie But Goody day at Catch the Bug where we use older but still much loved stamps.

Cowboy Birthday with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and happy Hump-Day!  Today I'd like to share a birthday card for my Father in Law.  When I saw this Old Pistol set at Doodle Pantry, I knew exactly what it was for.  Actually, there are several "masculine" sets.  Images for "real" men!
The sentiment comes with the set along with colored and non-colored versions.  When we visit, my DH and FIL spend lots of time shootin' up cans, seeing who's a better shot.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the weather.  It's much like spring here and my bulbs are coming up....I'm sure that means a freeze is coming soon.

Oh!  I want to add that if you enter this months Doodle Pantry challenge (you must use a DP image - and there are lots of freebies if you don't have one already), you get this set for FREE:
Super cute right?  So you WIN no matter what!!

Bugaboo Freebie St Pats Day

Hello all and Happy Friday!  No, I'm not confused, I just want to share this weeks FREEBIE FRIDAY from Bugaboo Stamps (and didn't want to double post!).
This is a GREAT freebie!  I recently got a few of the sentiment circles from Bugaboo because they are so user friendly!  I just love this collection!  And my little shamrock in the corner was made from freehand cut hearts...I was too lazy to pull out my Cricut!  But hey, at least I added some sewing on this one!

Easter with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy March!  This year is already flying by and before you know it, the girls will be hunting eggs and eating chocolate!

Today I'd like to share a couple cards using new releases at Doodle Pantry.
My first card features Easter Star.  Here it is closed.  This is going to a little one in my life, so I went with a fun sentiment!
And here it is open.  The star actually turns around all on it's own.  I couldn't decide which pics to share, so I'm including them all!  LOL!

*****And my second card, features Lion and Lamb.*****
I'm using the beautifully pre-colored image.  This also comes in black and white and has several sentiments.  I was aiming for an Easter card, but I think this can be used for several occasions.

Check out the Doodle Pantry Blog for more DT inspiration using all the new releases!
