Just a Note

It's Monday, and that means it's an Anything But a Card day at Catch the Bug. Thank goodness for Pintrest, I was able to get an idea for a post it note holder (instructions can be found HERE). It was super simple...gotta love that! I used a newer Bugaboo image, Cherry Girl, in the color version. Not only did it save me time, but it was already colored in my favorite color combo of black, white and red.

My Special Friend

We have a new clean and simple challenge this week at The Outlawz - Wings. I knew right away I wanted to use a new set from Avery Elle called Butterflies. I heat embossed this beauty, colored it up with my zig brush markers, then cut it out with one of the dies. I love the added shine on the butterfly from the heat embossing. I had a bit of trouble getting my colors to blend with the brush markers. I then scribbled some orange onto an acrylic block, picked some up with my yellow marker, then was able to blend no problem. I'll keep playing with these markers but for now, this method works for me.

Dream Big

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Bingo challenge going on this week at Fab N Funky. I went with pearls, tag, and ribbon. And my Doodle Pantry image is from the newly released set Dream Catcher Color. With the image still in the die, I sponged some soft teal blue ink around the image. I love the white border then around the oval. The two pattern papers are also from this set and I used my favorite dotted circle embossing folder for the final layer. Play along with the Bingo challenge this week at Fab N Funky for your chance to win a great Doodle Pantry prize.


Raymond's Frogs

Did you see the sweet set Kris of Imagine That Digi Stamps released called Raymond's Frogs? It is the cutest!!! I couldn't wait to get my hands on him and create something. Lucky for me he comes in a color version because I needed to make something quick since we are now on our annual beach vacation. Be sure and pick up Raymond's Frogs for yourself, especially if you have some boys in your life...this set is perfect!!

Holly Jolly Christmas

 It's Wednesday and I'm lounging at the beach!!! Sure hope my post goes live when it's supposed to!! I don't want you to miss out on this fabulous sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Yet another opportunity to use some pattern paper scraps!

Our wonderful sponsor is Sami Stamps. If you haven't been to her store yet...what are you waiting for!!! She has some really fun and fabulous images! 

Like this cutie, Whiskers in my Stocking. I cut this image out with my Cut N Scan, colored it up with Copic markers, then popped it up on a watercolored background oval. I sure hope you can join us for our challenge over the next 2 weeks at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

New Release at Bugaboo

It's Tuesday and new release day at Bugaboo. I'm always amazed that Jodie has several new images every week!! And isn't this one a cutie, Christmas Bird. I used the color version because I needed to get a card done quickly before leaving for vacation! That's one of the reasons I love the color version of digital images. Be sure and check out what the rest of the DT created with this sweetie over at Catch the Bug.
