Sympathy Flower Watering Can card

 Hello and happy Monday.  Today I'm sharing a card for the latest Anything Goes Catch the Bug challenge.  The challenge is now every other Saturday which gives you two weeks to enter!

My card features Flower Watering Can from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Copics, and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Simple design, considering the type of card.  I do struggle with sympathy cards and usually purchase something instead, but I'm giving it a go.

I've added a bit of sewing as well as touches of glaze.  Simple layout.  Monochromatic.

That's it from me today.  I thank you for taking a look and hope you have a wonderful week.

This meets the following challenges:  A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge: Anything Goes, The Crafter's Cafe: Flowers, and Daisy Chain: Monochrome.

Spring Bumble Bee Hello card

 Hello and happy Friday!

I'm here with a reminder about the current Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge blog.  You have until April 2 to enter.

I'm featuring Spring Bumble Bee by Star Stampz.  I made my background using a hexagon punch, putting yellow punches on yellow CS for an embossed look.

I added a few drops of glaze to look like dew drops, as well as glaze on the petals and other areas.  The layout might seem a bit strange, but that's because I messed up the sentiment and ended up covering it with the image to save the card, and moving the sentiment to the top.  Hopefully it doesn't look too "off."

So you still have one more week to enter the anything goes challenge!  Thank you for taking a look.


This meets the following challenges:  Creative Knockouts: Friendship, Krafty Chicks: All Occasion, Fab N Funky: Flowers, and Watercooler Wednesday: All About Occasions.

Ice Cream Cone Stack Birthday Card

 Hello.  I know it's already March but I just thought of a new years resolution - actually post my creations online!  So let's see how I do from here on out.

Today I'm sharing a card for the latest Catch the Bug challenge: Anything Goes.  Yes, this challenge is just about over, but for those of you who are quick or who have something already ready, please join in!

Either way, I want to share this since I thought the image, Sweet Treats Set from Bugaboo Stamps, is just adorable.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Itty Bitty Banners set, heat embossed onto brown cardstock.  I actually pulled out my sewing machine for this one.

 I added a touch of glaze and popped up the fussy cut image for a little dimension.  The colors are quite bland so I had to throw in some strawberry (or raspberry) ice cream for a bit of pop.

That's it for me.  I wish you a wonderful Friday!

This meets the following challenges: Creative Fingers: Anything Goes, Polkadoodles: Anything Goes, Creative Knockouts: Birthday Wishes, and Crafty Creations: Anything Goes.

Pretty Possums Sunflowers Hello Card

 Hello and hope all is well.  I'm here with a short post today.  I'm sharing a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.  It runs through the end of the month so there is still time to get in on the challenge!

I'm featuring digi stamp Pretty Possum's Sunflowers by Colour of Love.  The sentiment is a die from My Favorite Things.  I colored the image with copics, did a little bit of sewing, and left this flat for easy mailing.

So join in the Corrosive Challenge if you get chance!

My Way Day with Chocolate Cake card

 Hello and happy Hump Day!  Today is My Way Day and if I can have it MY way, I would have my cake and eat it too.

So today I'm sharing a card featuring the Birthday Cake $1 Digi from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with copics.  I created the circle with a stencil and distress inks, fussy cut my image, and popped it up for a bit of dimension.  The sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  Super simple format.

So don't forget to have it your way today and thank you for taking a look!

 Hello and welcome February!  Today I would like to share a card for the current Catch the Bug Blog challenge: Anything Goes.

Just a close up of the glossy goodness.

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).
