You're A Fighter








It's Freebie Friday   at Bugaboo Stamps! Whoo Hoo!  What is this week's Freebie, you ask? It's a really fun one, this week! This week's friday Freebie is AKV Boxing - Punch.  The perfect image for a card for the fighter in your life. (Any kind of fight works!)

To see lots of creations using this fun image,  check out the Freebie Friday post at Catch The Bug!

My card, today,uses the Freebie Friday, image, AKV Boxing - Punch, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. My card layout uses the sketch, below, from Sketch Saturday.



I made this card for someone very special to me, who is battling cancer, for the second time.  Even with this being the second round, the fighting spirit is there and he never gives up! I'm sure it is hard to stay positive, so I figure a little handmade card of encouragement now and then is a great way to show how proud I am of him, for keeping positive through this battle.

It's a Pirate Teddy!



It's new release Tuesday, at Catch The Bug! Are you ready for adorable! Check out the new release, Pirate Bear, that I have to show you! Don't you just love him!  For more creative goodness featuring this adorable little guy, check out New Release Tuesday at Catch The Bug!

Oh, Oh, and if you just can't resist snatching this cuteness up for yourself, he is available for purchase in the Bugaboo Stamps, store! Get him for your very own! You know you want to!

My card uses the new release image, Pirate bear, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash.  I wanted to be different, so I stayed away from "Pirate" type colors or fall colors - And this is what I came up with. (Not bad from working from my stash of scraps!) I love how the houndstooth patterns and the strips go together, with those polka dots between them, for contrast. This is a clean and simple card, designed for the guys, so no frills or embellishments, just clean and simple!

You'll Come Out On Top



Happy Saturday, everyone! It's time for a new challenge, today, at Catch The Bug! This week's challenge is Bingo! One of our favorites, and, hopefully one of yours!  As always, there are are prizes up for grabs, from Bugaboo Stamps, so hurry over to Catch The Bug and link up your bingo creation with us, for your chance to win!

Today, I have a very special card to show you.  This card was made for someone who means the world to me, and is going through something very stressful right now.  Please say a prayer that things will turn out in a positive way. He really needs prayers and positive vibes.

My masculine card uses the image, Puppy Pile, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  All papers used to create this card are from my stash. The paper with the anchors is symbolic of his courage, so it was perfect for this card.  Polka Dots and puppies were used, to lighten up the mood and hopefully bring a smile.  (Who doesn't smile over puppies and polka dots?!) The card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I've used denim fabric tags as little banners, for my hand written sentiments. Tiny wooden buttons were used to embellish the top left corner of the card, as well as below the image.

I am entering this masculine card in the following challenges:

Good Morning Bloggers!

Happy Mother's Day to all those mom's out there and to all those moms who are no longer with us!

I'm back with another challenge and another card for you, today!  Today starts a new  challenge over at Catch The Bug!  Today's challenge is Anything Goes, so you can enter anything you've created! .

You could be one of our random winners and snatch up some awesome digi images from wonderful artist Jodie Mackrell, creator of Bugaboo Stamps!

My mother is no longer with me, but it is still a day to remember her.  Today's card is a Mother's Day card.  My card uses the image, Heel Accessories, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I just love easel cards! It's considered a fancy fold card, but is so easy to make!  This one is exceptionally easy, as its all one piece of cardstock, with multiple score lines.  This card folds flat and is easily mailed, so no special envelope is needed.  I have kept this card simple. I've only used pearls and ribbon, to embellish.  The pink ribbon is tied into a handmade bow. The sentiment is Hand Stamped and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches, by Stampin Up.

Respect The Chickens



WoooHoo I am back in blogland! Did you miss me?!  I've been on a break from blogging and crafting, due to health issues, but am happy to finally be back!  A big thank you to Jodie, the artist, all the admin staff and my fellow DT members at Bugaboo Stamps for allowing me this break from DT duties, to take care of my health.  Bugaboo Stamps and Catch The Bug are the best ever!

My first project, now that I'm back, is for Humor Me Wednesday at Catch The Bug. Humor Me Wednesday is the day of the week when we celebrate some of the nation's funniest humorous holidays! Today, I am celebrating International Respect For Chickens Day, which happens this week! Yes, yes, I know - this is an Easter card and Easter is already behind us. I just couldn't resist using this retired chicken image, though, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers! Isn't he adorable?! Unfortunately, he is no longer available, but there are others much like him, available in the shop at Bugaboo Stamps!

I went with springy pastel colors for my card, which are perfect for Easter! I've used two glittery flower buttons above the image, to add some sparkle. The image is colored with Promarkers. I used some Easter egg printed ribbon from my stash, across the center of the card, and yellow ribbon, tied in a handmade bow, below the printed ribbon. The sentiment is punched with the word window punch from Stampin Up.
