OBG: Tuesday Morning Sketches 446

It's time for a card featuring an Oldie But Goodie image from the Bugaboo shop.  I don't send out many Easter cards (there are just too many birthdays around Easter that I just don't have time to make them) but this year ... I've made one.

For my card, I used the darling image: Egg Tulip Bunny.  Jodie has lots of cute Easter images; hop on over to the Bugaboo site (see what I did there?!! Insert a rimshot) for more cute Easter images.

I'm also joining in the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.  Their sketch worked perfectly with this image.

The Sketch Aunts Challenge 42

I'm freezing today so it's no surprise that I chose Gladys to put on my card ... wishful thinking.  I could TOTALLY go for a beach vacation to Bora Bora or some Caribbean island.  Yep, Spring Break and we are ... still here.  (sigh)

I'm joining in the sketch challenge over on Die Sketch-Tanten.  I'm also joining in the fun over on the Art Impressions blog.  Their theme is "Perfect Pastimes."  They wanted to see people having fun.  I  have about a million AI "people" stamps so it was easy to chose one.

I hope YOUR Spring Break involves somewhere fun.

SS 506: Paper Nest Dolls

Again, I'm killing two birds with one stone. There is a brand new challenge over on the Sketch Saturday Challenge blog AS WELL AS a new challenge on the Catch The Bug Challenge blog.

I'm using the sketch and an image from Bugaboo to complete both challenges.  I'm using Jodie's 4 Block Tulip Square image to make my card.  I love the way my card turned out this week ... so pretty!

The sponsor from the Sketch Saturday blog is Paper Nest Dolls.  She is giving our winner 3 free digi-images.

Over on the Catch The Bug site, our challenge is a photo image.  You may use any image on your project to win the Seven or Four-image prizes, but if you have Bugaboo images, we would LOVE to see them!  If you don't HAVE a Bugaboo image, there is a freebie available each Friday.

Oh Chute!!

After I made this card, my 15 year old came into the room and said, "I like it except for the ugly rabbit image."  (What?!!)  Regardless of his opinion, I stand behind my image choice.  I love Cat's Pajama's cute rabbits.

I'm joining in several challenges with my card.  I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.  I rotated their sketch to make it work for clouds and I am low on black enamel dots, so thus, the two instead of three!

I'm also joining in The Library Challenge of Watership Down by Richard Adams.  The Librarian suggested that you be inspired by the cover, the title or the story.  I chose the story.  If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it.  I cried at the end but really I cry at the drop of a hat so .... yeah.

Jeannie over on Dragonfly Journey's wanted to see some Bunnies, Chicks or Ducks.  Done!

New Releases over on the Bugaboo Site!

There is a new release over on the Bugaboo site.  This one is called Thank You Tulip.  I didn't need a thank you card but, unfortunately, I needed another sympathy card.  I removed the words so I could add my own.

Head on over to the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team made using this beautiful and very versatile image.

FMS 328

I didn't have to work today so that means I had more time to play in my studio today.  I've been wanting to color this guy up since he arrived at my door.  I probably should have colored his boots a bit differently.  It kinda looks like he has leg warmers on!  But it's OK, he is ROCKIN' this 80s look!

I used the sketch over on the Freshly Made Sketch blog.  I liked it's simplicity.  I'm also joining in the "Going Green" theme over on the Dragonfly Journeys site.

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone!

March Gerda Steiner Challenge

I'm having a "day"  ... you know, when things are just NOT going your way?!!  I'm ready to take some inspiration from this cat and spend the day reading, sleeping or maybe both.

This is the image from the Gerda Steiner monthly challenge.  This snoozing kitty challenged me; I struggled to find a way to use him.  Here is what I came up with this month!  Using Gerda's image each month allows me to receive next month's image for free.  It's not too late to buy this month's image and join in!

Saturday Challenge: Nature's Wonder

Over on the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog we have a new challenge.  It's Nature's Wonder: All Creatures Great And Small.  The first "creature" that popped into my mind was my dog: Holiday.  She doesn't look like this, but I'm sure that she would be HAPPY to celebrate anyone's birthday as long as she was assured a piece of cake.

This week I'm using the Bugaboo image: Charlie's Birthday.  Jodie has quite a few dog images under the "Critter" tab.

The rules for the challenge are simple:
  • Create a project inspired by the theme and post a link to it on the Catch the Bug blog
  • New projects only no backlinking please!  
  • Limit 3 projects per follower!
Come join in the fun; there are fun prizes to be won!

SS 504: Sasayaki Glitter

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

This week we are sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter.  Our winner will receive 1 digital images from her shop.  I'm using her image: Balloon Hedgehog on my card.

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