Thinking of You

This week, over at The Outlawz, we're having an Anything Goes theme for our clean and simple challenge. So the sky's the limit. Of course I was running behind so mine had to be also quick and easy!!! I enjoy making my own stamped backgrounds, so that's what I did here, using a stamp set from Avery Elle called All Squared Up. In my hurried state, I goofed up a portion of the background, so the white and black strip served as a cover up! Problem solved. Sure hope you can join us at The Outlawz for our anything goes clean and simple challenge.

A Birthday Wish

Tada!!! I finished the last card for the week of challenges going on over at Catch the Bug. Today was a recipe challenge - I went with Animal Crackers (I still love those cookies!!) - use at least one animal on your card and Stickles or liquid pearls.

And here's my card, using from Bugaboo the adorable Bee Bear Flowers. His wings were the perfect place to add a little Stickles. I had to pull out my honeycomb embossing folder as well as some glitter paper for the little banner. Clean and simple...perfect!!

Send in the Clowns

Yesterday at Catch the Bug, the challenge was to include a clown on your project. I found this fun one, from Bugaboo, called  Clown Around Unicycle. Keeping it clean and simple, just the way I like it!! One more day to go and I will have all 7 challenges completed!!! Just waiting for the Stickles to dry then finish putting it together. And the best part is I don't work tonight so I will have time to play!!

Have a Yummy Day

Okay, here we go, down to the wire of the Bugaboo Birthday Bash going on at their blog, Catch the Bug. Wednesday's challenge was to use humor on a birthday project. Not only did I have this adorable Bugaboo image, Bubbles Birthday Cake, printed out, but I also had it colored up for a project that never came to be!! Time saver for me, that's for sure!!  And talk about lucky, because in my search thru my stack of printed images, I found this sentiment too. Fabulous!!

Color Challenge

Now that's more like it, I'm way behind on the challenges going on over at Catch the Bug to celebrate Bugaboo's 5th birthday. The color challenge is for Day 4, Tuesday (today is Thursday!!!). Told ya I was behind!

Here's my card, using from Bugaboo the image Flower Garden. Once again, I pulled this image from a stack that were already printed off to use someday. Well it seems that day is today!!! Back to my stamp room I must go!

Happy B-day!

I'm all out of sorts today, overslept but boy did it feel wonderful to do so!!!! I want to share my b-day card using a Fresh Brewed Designs image, Coffee Cake. I've been in the mood for not so traditional colors lately and figured brown and green for a birthday card hit the mark on that one! Yeah, then I thought I'd add a touch of pink, just because. I used paper scraps AND a previously printed off image...hooray for that! The gold buckle is actually a die cut, and I think that's the first time for using that die!

I wanted to let you know we're having a new digi release at Fresh Brewed Designs January 27th. A few sneak peeks can be found on the Fresh Brewed Blog

Also, if you share the above badge on your blog or Facebook page, you'll receive this cute ladybug image absolutely FREE! Read all the details HERE.
