The theme is Baby it's cold outside

For my card I used the image SNOWMAN 1  This image comes in a set of three.  I colored the image with copics and used my cloud template. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I then used My favorite things stitched die.

This is my card and fun image called Cone of shame... I don't have cats (allergic) but I do have two hair dogs.. and they have been in need of  the cone of shame.  I feel sorry for them as it has to be uncomfortable. Plus they cant use the dog door so that sucks too. for me.. LOL
Well for this card I colored the images with copics and fussy cut them out. I then found some Basic grey dp.. This is from a pet pack but what I chose doesn't have any pets on them..

Everything is better - Catch the bug - Humor Wed.

Wednesday July 18, 2018
 
It's time for Humor Me Wednesday at Catch the bug
 
Today is "Take your pet to work day" and you can find this image Kidz girl cat in the Bugaboo store.. I would of loved being able to take my pet to work but I'd have to bring two small dogs. hum don't think the State job would like that.. But when I was in a private agency I did have to bring my dog which was having some recovery from surgery and he just laid under my desk and it was great. He wasn't up to moving around and just wanted to sleep but I was there for his meds and potty time. I loved it..  Well I don't have a cat only because I am allergic to them. but I saw this darling image and thought it would be perfect for take your pet to work. I chose a Stampin up background dot paper and went through my scraps and made some banners and added a little Quick Quote chalk ink along the edges. I added the Darcies sentiment to a larger banner. I colored the image with copics and used glossy accents on the hearts on her top and bow.

Your are better than summer sunshine - Bugaboo New Release

Tuesday July 17, 2018
 
Tuesday is New Release day over at Bugaboo..
Check out the design  teams creations over at Catch the bug..
 
 
The new release is Beach Ruby... Well I have been doing beach scenes the last few weeks so figured it's time for Ruby to be heading down the road to the beach.. or she's on her way down her sidewalk to her car to drive to the beach.. I created the grass, sidewalk with copics. I added grass between the sidewalk cracks cause most sidewalks I see have them.. Must be our nice high humidity, rainy weather we have in Washington state.. LOL.  When I thought of sidewalks and grass I thought of worms so I added a few Tech. Tuesday worms. LOL.. I then colored Beach Ruby with copics. I created the clouds with my template and using Stampin up ink added the Simon Says sentiment... not sure why she's wearing high heels to the beach.. but hay I don't do and don't think I have ever done high heels.. I'm more a tennis shoe, birkenstock, ugg wearer..

Did you hear the Egg-citing news? - Always fun challenges #67

Monday July 16, 2018
 
It's time for another challenge at
Our theme is PAPER PIECING
 

I sure had a lot of fun creating my card. I started by using my ground and cloud template and Ranger inks. I then drew in the tree trunk with copics.  Next I dug through my scraps and using Reverse Confetti bird house, branch and birds I stamped and cut out the different pieces to create the scene. I also used Tech. Tues. leaves and scraps. Added them to the tree.. (not sure if I like them.. but they are there now and adhered down..) So thinking of the sentiment.. I thought this could be a baby announcement. So I used Paper Pretties sentiment and heat embossed and cut apart and adhered to the card. Now for the babies.. see the little shinny eyes in the bird house?? yup.. 3 babies.. The little arrow to point you towards the bird house babies was stamped with Stampin up ink and it's from My favorite things. I added a little nuvo drops to the bottom of the bird house.
