Oceans of Joy Birthday Card

Hello!  Today we are attending another softball game - and today we are blessed with TWO games!  Yes....such a blessing.  But hey, last game, the girls won and my baby got the team ball for two runs and four RBI's.

Aside from a very busy day, I'm here to show my latest card for the current Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: BINGO.

My birthday card features Bugaboo Stamps Under The Sea Birthday Set.  The sentiment is included with the set, and all I did was add a little glaze for dimension.  This is for my big brother - so I didn't want to put too much by way of embellishments.

Anyway, I hope you get to play along with the Catch the Bug BINGO challenge this week.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and have a wonderful weekend!

This meets the following challenges: Crafting with Friends: Anything Goes, Creative Fingers: Anything Goes, Aud Sentiments: Happy Birthday, and Crafty Creations: Anything Goes.

Flowers for Mom card

Hello and happy HUMP DAY!  I always look forward to hump day because this is the day me and my girls start the morning by talking like camels.  I'm sure people would think we are absolutely loony, but hopefully these are the memories my girls will have forever, of their mom being a crazy woman!

Today I'm quickly sharing a card using a Bugaboo Stamp new release:

The digi is Flower Garden Set and is currently half off.  The sentiment is cut with Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart.  I feel I missed the boat a little on this one.  Like it's missing something.  Ever have a "great" idea and when putting things together, it's just not what it looked like in your head?  Well, this is one of those moments for me.  But it's ok, my Mom likes ALL my cards - because she's #1 Mom and that's what #1 Moms do.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Off to Bean's softball game.

Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Card

Hello and happy Saturday!  Today, I am enjoying an extremely early softball game.  I mean it necessary to be at the out of town ball field at 8 am on a weekend???  Well, I think not!  But Bean is working hard and I'm a mom.  So I do "mom things."  Like waking up at an unreasonable hour on Saturday.

Aside from that, I'm here to show my latest creation for Catch the Bug's latest challenge: Rainbows/Unicorns.

I loved unicorns as a kid and I guess that never really goes away from generation to generation.  Right now, Bit (6 years old) is way into these magical creatures.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Unicorn Set.  These unicorns make me smile with their funny expressions.  Anyway, short post today, so join in if you can and thanks so much for stopping by for a look.

This meets the following challenges: Simply Papercraft: Anything Goes, Always Happy Birthday: Anything Goes/Balloons, Watercooler Wednesday: All About Occasions, Seize the Birthday: Vibrant Colors and Challenge Up Your Life: Unicorn/Rainbows.

Easter Birdie Card

Hello all and happy Friday eve.  I use whatever little tricks to get me through the week!  Today I'm sharing my last Easter card with you - and yes, it's already been sent out.  It's a little different than my usual type of card, but hopefully I pulled off the color combo.

This is much softer than usual.  The image is Easter Birdie from Goha Digital Stamps and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Easter came so early this year and I feel so off track.  I've been working on my yard, getting it summer ready, and it's only mid April!

This card is for this months Anything Goes challenge at the Corrosive Challenge Blog.  Super easy challenge that lasts all month long.  I hope you will join in.

This also meets the following challenges: Crafty Creations Challenge: Anything Goes, Creative Moments Challenge Blog: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.

Funny Bunny Easter card

Hello and Good Friday to all.  So this weekend, after church, we are going to a farm to cuddle goats.  That's right!  Goats!  Baby goats.  I am so excited.  There will also be goat cheese sampling and an egg hunt for the kids.  Of course I'm probably allergic to the little baby goats, I'm pretty much allergic to everything, but I'm going to enjoy every sneeze and itchy eye.

Today I'm sharing a Bugaboo Stamp new release named Funny Bunny Babies on my Easter Card.

And guess what?  It's a bit of a fancy fold.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Everybunny set..
I saw something very similar on Pinterest.  The card IS straight, I just couldn't get the first photo straight.  Oh well.  I tried.  Anyway, I wish you all a very Happy Easter!

This meets the following challenges: Die Cuttin Divas: Easter, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Unicorn Challenge: Make it Girly.

Gardening Easter Bunny

Hello and happy Monday!  Today starts my girls' spring break.  Thank the Lord for Grandma, because I was not made to be a stay at home mom.  Don't get me wrong, I love my babies dearly, but spending an entire week with them would probably lead to lots of Mimosa drinking starting early in the morning!

So, for today, I'm sharing a card for this weeks Catch the Bug Challenge: Photo Inspiration (please click on link for photo).

I'm going with both gardening and colors, plus I needed another Easter card.  Bright spring colors on this one, featuring Bugaboo Stamps Garden Bunny, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Join in this week if you can!

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Cardmakers: Bunnies, Chicks, Eggs, Dragonfly Journeys: Bunnies, Chicks and Ducks, Pink Gem: Easter Time, and Crafty Animals: Anything Goes.

Easter Daffodils Card

Hello and happy hump day.  With the days being longer, it has me looking forward to spring.  I'm already clearing up my flower gardens and all my bulbs are popping up.  I live in a desert with lots of sand, but my bulbs manage to flourish each year, producing new "baby" bulbs.  Every couple of years, I have to thin them out and either find a new spot or give them away.

Some of my early blooms are daffodils which inspired this Easter card.

I've used Cricut cart Walk in my Garden and the sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  This is also in attempt at using my Cricut more often this year - and I feel I'm off to a pretty good start, plus I wanted to enter this weeks Bitten by the Bug challenge: Easter.  So that's it for today.  Thank you for stopping by!

This also meets the following challenges: Cardztv: Anything Goes, Shopping Our Stash: Here Comes Peter Cottontail, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.
