i'm here for you. anytime, Catch the bug challenge

 Saturday November 18, 2017
 
It's time for another challenge at Catch the bug..
Today we have a BINGO challenge card.



Here is the BINGO card for you to follow..

 
OH MY I knew I wanted to use this image - Funny Pup 02 so I looked at the BINGO card to see what and how I could use it..
I chose the top.. Sentiment / Bugaboo image / Charm
 
This little dog is so cute.. It doesn't look like my dog but it's so darling. I colored her with copics and added an old old charm I had. I surprised it's not green from tarnish.. it's that old.. I added some pearls to her collar and look at that awesome sentiment.. You who have pets.. I think especially dogs.. This fits. My dogs are always there for me.. ALWAYS and anytime. They love me no matter what and there to comfort me.. (yes hubby does too but you know what I am talking about)
I hope play along and enter your card over at Catch the bug.

I love you - Aud Sentiments #193

Thursday November 16-27, 2017
 
Welcome to another challenge at
 
Our challenge is 
ANYTHING GOES + SENTIMENT
 
 
This is my card. I took Simon Says flower/leaf stamp and white heat embossed on a white card base. I then took a copic BG10 and colored in the background. I went over the flowers only with Spectrum Noir glitter pen. I die cut YOU from My Favorite Things and then stamped I LOVE from the same set. I layered it on the card. I which you could see this in person. It's so pretty.  I will be doing this again. I like the copic BG blue cause it's not solid so you can see a little of the white coming through. I didn't want to go over and over cause I didn't want a strong BG color just a light tint. Cant wait to see what you all create.

Life looks like this ... thankful - Creative with Stamps #20

Wednesday November 15-30, 2017
 
Well it's almost my birthday (20th) and Thanksgiving.. So following the Thankful theme mid month reminder..
I have another card to show you...
 
 
I was looking on what I am thankful for.. I am thankful for my children, family, health (sometimes I question it) and life.. So I created this card showing a family.. Life looks like this...
I used my cloud template to create the background then used Lawn Fawn grass hills and some scraps of paper. I used Close to my heart bunnies and fussy cut them out. I took Mama Elephant balloon, birds and flowers and die cut them out. I colored all of the images with copics and the sentiment is two parts.. Life looks like this from Tech. Tuesday and Thankful is from Simon Says.. It was fun creating this scene.. The bunnies I won past spring time from HeARTful stamping blog which Chris is a Close to my Heart demonstrator. .

It's better to get laugh lines - Pause Dream Enjoy #199

Wednesday November 15, 2017
 
Dang November is going by pretty fast. I hope it's been a good month for you. Weather is good and you are enjoying life.
 
Today we have another challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy #199
The Orange team chose CAS - CLEAN AND SIMPLE
 
 
During the summer I took some stamped images and my Mission paints and went out on the deck and painted. I later die cut them out and put them in a bowl.. Well now was the time to use one of the images.
This is from Tech Tuesday and the sentiment. I did not have a lily pad so I just free handed one and using Zig markers painted the lily pad and water. I think I did pretty good.. what do you think?? I then added the frog on foam dots. This card was done. CAS.
Need more inspiration head over to PDE and see what the Orange created.

 I love Art Impressions images so using an old image that is a wood block rubber stamps I created this fun card. I stamped the guy and colored with copics. I added the wood floor with just swipes of the copic pen and then it looked bare so I added the My Favorite Things dog. The frame and sentiment is by Tech. Tues. stamped with Stampin up green ink. I then cut the image and background with Lil Inker stitch dies.
