Crawling by to Say Hi

Thursdays are Oldie Bug Goodie days at Catch the Bug, and I sure do enjoy playing along!! Today I'm using the adorable Bugaboo image Crab Flower. It makes me think of the beach which we are heading off to in few weeks!! I can't wait!!! The papers are from an old 6 x 6 pack by My Mind's Eye. Speaking of eyes, I added glossy accents to this guy's eyes for some fun shine and dimension. Now be sure and head over to Catch the Bug to see what other design team members created.

Thinking of You

We have quite a  CAS challenge this week over at The Outlawz...a one layer card!! Once I quite over thinking it, this came together quite quickly!! The stamp set is from Gina K Designs and called Sentimental Bouquet. I used some of my favorite inks by Catherine Pooler (check 'em out HERE) as well as from Simon Says Stamp and Paper Trey Ink. Yes, as I tell my husband, I NEED all those different brands of inks!! I embellished with a few score lines and sequins with some gold Stickles in the center. Now I sure hope you can join us for some one layer card clean and simple fun at The Outlawz.

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Hiding in my Craftroom - Feminine
The Crazy Challenge - Flowers

You're So Sweet

What could be sweeter than a freebie image from Bugaboo?!! Yep, this Bear Heartstrings is free at the Bugaboo store so be sure and scoop him up HERE. I just colored him up with my Copic markers and added a bit of sparkly Stickles to the wings. Head on over to the Bugaboo blog, Catch the Bug, to see more inspiration from other members of the Bugaboo design team.

Christmas Wishes??

But summer has just arrived, why a Christmas card??!!! It's never too early to start making Christmas cards! And this one makes use of the sweet Imagine That Digistamp image and sentiment from Marianne's Hamster set. The snowflake paper is from the Merry & Bright digi paper pack, also from Imagine That Digistamp. Now other members of the IT design team have some wonderful inspiration so be sure and check 'em out over at the Creative Playground.

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Send a Smile 4 Kids - Anything Goes

Oldie But Goodie Thursday

I so enjoy creating for the Thursday Oldie But Goodie inspiration post over at Catch the Bug. I have collected so many Bugaboo images that I love playing with some that I haven't used in a while. Like this one, Kawaii Kitty Cupcake. Being a mom of two furballs of my own, I'm always drawn to cat images. Yep, you guessed it, I cut this one out with my Scan N Cut!! I love that thing!! For more OBG Bugaboo inspiration, head on over to Catch the Bug.

You Make Me Smile

Boy a good night sleep would certainly make me smile!!! I'm late with my card but got it made. Our CAS challenge this week at The Outlawz is to use a technique. I went with foiling and heat embossing. The background was created with some deco foil transfer gel and this Winnie and Walter stencil. The sentiment is from the latest My Favorite Things kit, Sketchy Flowers, that is unfortunately sold out. I'm not sure that I'm lovin' this card very much, but I have to get over it and move on. There's more stamping that needs to be done!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful today!!
