Bugaboo New Release

I am SO excited to announce that I've been chosen as Guest Designer for Bugaboo Stamps.  Yay.  I've loved Jodie's images for so long; this is kind of a dream come true.  My first card uses the new image Sign It Snowman.  I have thing for snowman images so it wasn't difficult using this little cutie.

I'm joining in the following challenges:
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - Use an ornament (my "o" is an ornament)
Coloring in Scrapland - Tic-Tac-Toe (I'm doing the center row: Ribbon, Die and Bright - my paper is super shiny)

I hope that you will drop on by the Catch the Bug blog, and admire the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.

SSW2-123 Dilly Beans

Are you blinded by all the sparkle on this card?  I kinda went crazy selecting the busiest paper that I owned to make this card!!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.

Our sponsor is Megan Suarez from Dilly Beans.  I really DO love Megan's quirky and fun images.  They are such a blast to color!  This week I'm using her Mummy & Spider Love Candy (and really, who doesn't love candy?!!)

Our winner will receive 3 free images from the Dilly Beans shop.  What a great prize.  Won't you join in the fun?!!

Wishing "Shoe" Well

Is this guy not a riot?!!  I love his kick-y boots and that cheesy grin (plus the wobble I put on his back) ... and suddenly he is just the perfect image!!  I also wanted to show that "Chet" wasn't afraid to show his softer side too, so he's got a pink background.

I'm joining in the wiggle-wobble challenge over on the Art Impression blog.

SS484: Boo-Frickity-Hoo

It's Saturday and time for another challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.

This week we are sponsored by Drawn With Character.  Our winner will receive 3 free digi-images.  Cool.  I have just TWO more Halloween cards to make so I chose to continue with my Halloween theme.

I hope you have time to join in the fun this week.

I gotta admit ... I don't ever get tired of making Halloween cards.  Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays.

Which is why I was so sad when my boys told me that they don't want to Trick Or Treat this year.  What?!! (insert boo-boo face here)  There is still time for them to change their minds but I WILL try to respect their decision.  Maybe we can have a big bonfire and cook s'mores and hand out candy ... that will be fun too, I suppose!

This cute little mummy is a Whipper Snapper Design stamp and I'm using the sketch from the Cheerful Sketches Challenge blog.

My second card was more of a challenge.  The Catch The Bug site had a recipe: 1 Layer of Paper, 1 Word Sentiment and 1 Embellishment.  Yikes!  Sooo not my "thang" which is why it was so intriguing!!

I used the Dracula BobbleHead image from Bugaboo and then ... used my one embellishment to make him an actual bobble head (I'm not counting the crystal effects or glitter as an embellishment, just saying!).  His head wobbles!!  This simple card is seriously cute!

I'm also joining the "Anything Goes" theme over on the QKR Stampede site.

More Halloween Cards

I am sooo sick of all the drizzly rain.  Too cold and wet!  It IS the perfect excuse to stay inside and craft tho.

My second card uses the sketch over on the Freshly Made Sketch site.  I decided that the kids would like interactive cards and their sketch was PERFECT for a shaker card.

Despite all the card making (aka laundry, vacuuming and baking that I've avoided doing all week) I still have 10 more Halloween cards left to make.  Ugh!

I'm also entering the "Fall Colors" theme over on the Fab and Funky site and the "Trick or Treat" theme over on Cute Card Thursday.

At least I've had fun.

SSW2-122: Little Blue Button

Sooo, I got in a huge hurry to mail a few of my cards.  I quickly mailed this one off to a sick loved one and I didn't really notice that my picture was so terrible.  Sorry.  If you squint at it with one eye closed, it will look as cute as it WAS in real life.

Now that you can "see" the card better, I wanted to share that it's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.

We have a fun new sketch and the return of Little Blue Button as our sponsor.  I'm using her image: Spike and Anna Having Coffee.  I thought that she was darling.

 Our winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to her store.  

Here is a bit more about Little Blue Button:

Little Blue Button Stamps started it's life in december 2012 as free digital stamps company "Digital designs by Olga".  Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.  In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.  Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printables by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva.
