Bugaboo: Birthday Bash


You are probably saying ... where have you been, Joanna?

I have been a terrible blogger lately. Truth. Here is the reason: I just got a new job -- Yay!! But the stress of starting in the middle of the school year has been huge!  I've done very little but go to work, sleep and try (and I do mean TRY) to be a wife and mom.  The house is a total mess!

So, I am taking a two month leave from Bugaboo (how great is Jodie and everyone at Bugaboo that they are letting me get my life together?!! I love Bugaboo art and this team!!) I know that this creative break will really help me.

So goodbye for a bit.  I will see you in March.

Please, head on over to the Catch The Bug blog to see all the fantastic creations by the team.  We're celebrating Bugaboo's 9th Birthday.  Many stamp companies and blogs are closing shop but Bugaboo is still here.  Come celebrate Jodie's enormous achievement and get the chance to win some fabulous prizes.

Bugaboo: Oldie But Goodie


Happy Thursday!

Or, as we over on the Catch The Bug blog like to say Oldie But Goodie Day.  Today is the day that we share fantastic and NOT forgotten Bugaboo treasures.  I'm still caught up in the making Christmas card rush (I know, I know ... hard to believe since I've been making them ALL year long) but I'm still short a few.  I'm using Elf 001 ... yep, the elf that started all the craze over on the Bugaboo site.

I'm also joining in the fun over on the Try Stampin' On Tuesday site.  I liked their sketch and it fit my image perfectly ... when I rotated it.  It made for a super cute card.

Head over to the Catch The Bug blog to see other fantastic cards by the Bugaboo DT.

SSS: We Wish You a Sketchy Christmas

Ho Ho Ho!!

It's time for the 2nd challenge in the Season For Awkward Holiday Chaos!  Today we want you to follow Stella's sketch challenge to make a project.  Easy-Peasy!

I'm using one of my favorite Bugaboo images: the Christmas Trio Block.  I loved it so much that I segmented the blocks into individual images so I can resize them and use them together or apart.  It was like getting 4 images for the price of just one.

The Awkward Holiday Chaos runs from Saturday, December 1 - Friday, December 7.  If you make a project or card for each challenge, and post it on the Catch The Bug blog, you have the chance to be a winner.

Yes, you read correctly,  a weeks worth of challenges and LOTS of prizes to be won!!  Why don't you join in the fun?

SS: Little Penguins


Good heavens!

Can you believe that it is already DECEMBER?!!  Now I get that I am old and time passes faster but geez louise ... this year FLEW by!!

The time to make Christmas cards is HERE!! Yikes I have 38 more cards to make. Bugaboo is trying to help alleviate our Christmas stress by offering incentives to help us to catch up on holiday gifts.

Yes, it's the Holiday Chaos (I love this time of year!!)

It's so easy to join in the fun, and win prizes!

Today's challenge is to make a project that has some type of snow.  I'm using Little Penguin Decorate Tree on my card. I think with that big ol' glittery snowflake on the card, it fits the theme.

So come on by the Catch The Bug blog and join in the fun!

By the way, I'm using the sketch over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  They ALSO have prizes to be won.

Crabby Cathy Says, "Go Home, people."


It's another Freebie Fri-YAY!!

That means it's time for a freebie over on the Bugaboo site.  Super Dooper Yay! This week Jodie has this little cutie available. The image is called Crabby Cathy Right Idea and can be found under the Freebies & Sales tab.  I gotta admit that sometimes it is nice to spend a holiday in your own house for a change.  We did that for Thanksgiving and although I MISSED seeing the family, it was super restful.

But enough about me, hurry over to the Bugaboo site and snap up this one. While you are there, why don't you shop some of the other darling images that Jodie has for sale on the site.

If you need more inspiration about how to use this image, head over to the Catch The Bug site.

NR: Happy Fall From Bugaboo


It's Tuesday so there is a fabulous New Release over on the Bugaboo site.  This one is called Pumpkins and Leaves.  It really is the perfect image for those Fall cards that need to made that shouldn't have a "Halloween" theme. I'll be giving this one to my aunt who doesn't celebrate Halloween.

Please head over to the Catch The Bug blog and leave some love for my teamies.  Their cards are always amazing.

SS: ADFD - It's Penguin-ing to Look Like Christmas


Time for another challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  This time we have the return of a favored sponsor: Tammy from A Day For Daisies.  She is offering our winner a $12 Gift Certificate to her shop.

I used the sketch to make ... yep, you guessed it, another Christmas card. I'm using Tammy's darling image: Penguin Play

I hope you can join in the fun this week.
