This week at Catch the Bug we have a great color challenge for you. First of all, give me a minute while I take in the picture above...reminds me of the beach. Now I can't wait for our vacation!!! Anyway, the colors are great, love the blue greens. 

And here's my card for this challenge. Once again I cut out the Bugaboo image (Kawaii Kitty Fish)  with my Scan N Cut. I colored him up with copic markers then added some shimmer with my wink of stella pen to the water in the fish bowl. Quick and easy, my kind of card. I sure hope you can join us this week at Catch the Bug for our fabulous color challenge.

Bugaboo's Freebie Friday

It's Friday and that means a new freebie over at Bugaboo. Time to show off your red, white and blue with this sweetie, Fancy Sunbonnet July USA. I actually cut this image out with my Cut N Scan!! I would never fussy cut it out myself, too time consuming and I'm too lazy!!! Be sure and check out what other members of the DT created over at Catch the Bug.

Missing You

Seems like I'm forever playing catch up! Here is my card using an image from Imagine That which, as always, is late. It's just been one of those weeks!!! I used the darling image and sentiment from Marleen's Swing. I couldn't resist this sweetie image and fabulous color combo!!

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, just flipping it.

Hello Hello

We have a new sketch for you to play with over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. It's fabulous for a quick card!!! 

All the DT made use of freebie images from Dearie Dolls. Yes, images are free, even the color version. Pair one of those with this sketch and you'll have an instant card!! 

I used the adorable Crabby image. We leave in a month for our beach vacation...and I can't wait!!! My oldest son won't be joining us this year so I thought I would send this to him to let him know we say hello! Sure hope you can join us for a great sketch these next two weeks at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Happy Father's Day

Boy did I goof, today is Father's Day and I never mailed out a card for my FIL. YIKES!! I just can't seem to get it together lately!!! Anyway, I'm sharing a card I made for our Masculine Challenge over the CAS group at The Outlawz. I sponged on some distress ink and added some water droplets for the background then stamped the trees from Paper Trey Ink (Through the Trees). I'm not sure I like the colors I used but there was no "do over" with this card since it was late and I was very tired. I sure hope you'll join us at The Outlawz for our clean and simple masculine challenge.

Hey Chickie

Time to play a little bingo this week over at Catch the Bug. So many fun possibilities to pick from! 

I went with the middle row across - Ribbon, Animal, Player's Choice. My animal is the fabulous Hey Chickie Colored from Bugaboo, the ribbon is linen thread, and my "choice" was three layers of pattern paper scraps and brads. I simple love the expression on this chick's face...too funny! And being the color version helped me make this card up lickety split quick! Sure hope you can join us this week for some Bingo fun at Catch the Bug.
