Saturday Challenge: Bugaboo Bingo



Check out this cute new image in the Bugaboo store.  It's called Bella Birthday Balloons and I just adore her.   I'm gearing up for my May birthdays (I have a ton!) and thought that I better make a few more so I don't deplete my birthday stash.

There is a new challenge over on the Catch The Bug blog.  It's Bingo, a favorite of mine!  I used one of the diagonal rows: dies/punches, player's choice and a button.  My choice was to use twine.

Come play with us and possibly win prizes!

SS 510 Star Stampz


First of all, I want to wish a buddy of mine a VERY happy birthday.  Yep, Sarah M ... I'm talking to YOU!!  I wish I were there in New York to hang out with you and (of course) to eat whatever deliciousness that is in your kitchen!

It's also time for another challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We are sponsored by StarStampz.  She is offering our winner 3 digital images from her shop.

I rotated this week's sketch and used the darling image Bumble Bee for my card.

Why don't you join in the fun?!!

Friday Freebie: Butterfly Rose Girlz


It's Friday!!

And besides being the last day of the workweek (and a school holiday!) it's also time for a freebie over on the Catch The Bug blog.  Best part of today?  Yep, sleeping in on a weekday, it was super exciting!!

Today Jodie is offering this lovely image called Butterfly Rose Girlz.  I wanted to make a circle out of this image, so I imported it into a draw program and eliminated the roses from my image. I  LOVE the versatility of digital images ... you can flip, resize, erase, and even add other images or text.

Hurry on over to the Bugaboo site and snatch up this darling image.

SSS 608


Happy Tax Day to my American friends ... blah!  But the better news is that there is a new fun challenge over on the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.

I'm using an image from the Bugaboo set Birthday Unicorn 02.  This fun set has three images and one sentiment.  I don't know what I love more about this guy, the goofy expression on his face or the balanced hat on his horn!!

Here are the rules for the challenge:

*  Post your project to the blog, by 04/29/2018 at 7:00 AM EST
*  New projects only, no back-linking please!
*  Please limit your projects to 3 per person

You could win 10 free images (using a Bugaboo image), 7 free images, or 4 free images using any image!

Clearing My Desk


Have you ever lost something and then in the process of trying to find that thing, find a million other really cool things?  Yeah me neither (insert smirk).  I KNEW that I had printed the Gerda Steiner image of the month but when it came time to use it ... couldn't find it!

Yes, I could of printed another copy but it was time to clean.  Frankly, my creative space can get pretty cluttered when I'm trying to bang out a month of required cards in just a few days.

Anywho, I found THIS stamp from Wild Rose Studios that I bought sometime last year after a friend gave me two of their images.  Once I used it, I knew that I had to own it.

The other good news is that I FOUND my Gerda Steiner image sometime during my great paper purge.

Using this image on a project allows me to qualify for next month's freebie.  I decided to join in the fun over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.

New Release Tuesday


It's Tuesday and that means that there is a New Release in the Bugaboo store.  This one is called Kidz Mother's Day.  Sadly, I don't need Mother's day cards (miss you, Mom) so I changed it into a thank you card.  You can never have too many of those on hand.

Be sure to check out the awesome projects the design team created with this new image over on the Catch the Bug blog.

I'm also joining in the twine challenge on the Dragonfly Journeys blog.
