Wednesday October 29, 2014
You are seeing dots.. lot's of dots.. Polka dots to be exact. I think I may of over done it but the theme is POLKA DOTS..
I used the image Always in my heart Sophia  I just cut a lot of circles and backed them off center on black to give a little contrast. I stamped my sentiment on the circles and cut out Sophia. I hope you play along and lets see what you have for polka dots.

Catch the bug - New Release - Merry Christmas

October 28, 2014
For those who like fast easy color images this is the one for you. I just lightly colored the ornaments and used the designer paper and the card base to make the card complete. I tried to do a glitter technique all over but it just gave a fuzzy look so round filed that mistake. LOL  The idea was good but not for this type of card at least for me.

Paper Makeup #164 - Pumpkins. Happy fall Y'all

Monday October 27, 2014
It's a sad sad day at Paper Makeover.. this will be our last challenge. It's sad but totally understandable. Our lives change and we have to do what is best. The store will still be open but the challenges will close.
I am still on other creative team so I will be posting as usual.  Now on to todays challenge..

Wow it's almost the end of October and Halloween and colder weather. It was fun to make a fall card with out it being Halloween. I chose to use the pumpkin images called color it autumn at Paper Makeup.  I just cut them out and colored them then thought I would make a pumpkin from oval punches and add the sentiment over it.  I used washi tape to give a frame look.  It's a fun card.
I hope you play along and remember to use a digi..

Catch the bug Free Friday - Merry Christmas

Friday October 24, 2014
This cute little girl is the free Friday image.. She is ready for Christmas. I know she's on the way to your house.. (she's free) I love the papers from BG. Eskimo kisses. I liked the trees on the left but once it was made it looked too plain so I added the twig die thing.. then called it quits.. but kept looking at it as I was making other cards and so went back and added the sequins. I think that gave it a good look. I hope I did not over do it..
I hope you get over to the store and grab this cutie while she is there.

Fitztown #58 Vellum challenge / And I think to myself...

Friday October 24, 2014

I had this great vellum sentiment from Quick quote and I thought this Teddy Floral image was perfect to go with the sentiment.  I colored the image with copics and had fun choosing colors that I thought would pop and make this cute bear image even more darling than it is. I hope you get a chance to play in the challenge at Fitztown

Aud Sentiments #118 - 2 or 3 word sentiment / You're the best

Wednesday October 22, 2014
Welcome to another two week challenge at Aud Sentiments #118 for our 2 or 3 word sentiment.
Not one or four words but 2 or 3 words.. Make sure they are on the front of your card.
This challenge is sponsored by The Paper Shelter and I chose to use the image "It's tea time"

This is my card and I had a fun time coloring her and trying to figure out the color's I wanted to use and how to color. I know there are some jewels in her hair and I just made them part of her hair mainly because I wasn't sure how to color them and it also looked like it could just be a curl of her hair so I chose to go that way.  I chose to use 3 words from a new stamp set from Simon Says called "what's brewing".  Fun image and I hope it inspires you to play along and add your two or three word sentiment on the front of your card. You have two weeks to play along.

Pile it on #42 - cheerful uplifting message
IDIC #234 - food or drink
Glitter n sparkle #107 - use some orange

Paper Pretties #333 - Birthday - Happy birthday

Wednesday October 22, 2014
I wanted a different kind of Birthday card.. My sister in law is into gardening. Oh my.. my brother and her have the most beautiful garden. I did not get the gardening gene my brother got it all and I am so glad because they have the most awesome property. This would make a nice birthday card for her come March. I chose to use the image Simply special
I have not used this burlap background stamp in like forever and I like the added touch it gave to the card. I used versa mark so it just gave a tone on look.
Its really a colorful card even if it does have the dark gray.

Paper Pretties #332 - friendship
I used the image Best friends for my friendship card. I love the OMG!.. I know it's seldom used in my language but it was fun to use on this card. I also love the large purple ribbon.

Another Tuesday at Bugaboo means another look at the New Release at Catch the bug - Frame it witch frog

Paper Makeup #162 Use BLACK

Monday October 13, 2014

I chose to use MeMe fairy for the image for my card.
I was not sure what I wanted to do using black so decided to color the dog black.. I don't think it's too bad. Sure there are other copic users who know better ways. But I am ok. Will give me chance to look around and find what needs to be done to get a good black image. Looks like U-tube will be my teacher.  I hope you play along. Remember to use a digi and play along.. Cant wait to see what you choose for black.

I used the papers from Cosmo cricket, and my minds eye. I had this stamp by I don't remember who puts it out. I cut it apart and only used the Plant the seeds of success..

Paper Pretties #331 - Clean & Simple
Ok I always get confused on C&S because I seem to over doooooo... I just have that problem when it says C&S.. But this was so easy. I used washi tape on the left side.. see the mustache washi.. I thought it looked like bats .. funny huh.. I took advantage of the orange card stock and had very little coloring beings I had a pumpkin and candy corn. I used color pencils to give the extra colors. How about those spiders. I love those little guys. They are so cute and add a nice touch to the card.
I used Holiday sweets image.  I hope you play along over at Paper Pretties.

Catch the bug / Bugaboo New Release / smile

Tuesday October 7, 2014
Happy Tuesday and it's New Release day at Catch the bug - frame it balloon boy
I thought he looked like he was celebrating a birthday so that I what I made. It could be celebration of anything. I used a all over embossing folder for the card base, added the smile die from Tech. Tues. and the enamel dots and heart mme. The happy birthday is just an old stamp I have from club scrap. For the image I colored with copics and used glitter on the balloons, I added the strings behind the two balloons because I made them see through and it looked funny with out the strings when I was done coloring. I gave him some white freckles  on his cheeks and nose. He did have black freckles.. I love the bright happy card that it is.

Paper Pretties # 330 - SPORTY - Happy birthday dude!

Wednesday October 1, 2014
I know there are skate boarders who do this as a sport.. So I chose skater Zac.
I .. in my lot younger days had a skate board and my girlfriend and I would go over to her Uncles on Bainbridge Island in WA. state to use our skate boards. In those days back in the 60's there was not a lot of traffic. It was mostly a vacation island in the Puget sound.  I am sure now day's its over populated as all the areas seem to be.
Any how I hope you play along and make a sporty card.
