Fancy Fold Funny Pup Birthday Card

Hello all!  Today my girls started school and it's always so much fun watching them take it all so seriously, making sure to have their backpacks packed, waking up early, filling water bottles, etc.  Of course next week will probably be a whole other story.

Anyway, today I'm sharing a card for the current Catch the Bug Challenge: Bingo (click on link for bingo card):
I'm going with Dots & Stripes/Flower/Sentiment.  I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Funny Pup 2 and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs.
Also, I'm pretty pleased with the cut out section - not sure if it's a fancy fold, but I'm still pleased with the final result - inspiration from Pinterest.  So join in if you can this week!

This meets the following challenges: Dragonfly Dreams: AnimalsStamping Sensations: Anything Goes, and Crafty Friends: Anything Goes.

Best Teacher Pup Cricut Card

Hello and happy Thursday!  School starts next week and the girls are getting excited.  Actually, so am I, and I look forward to the routine.  This year Sprout has the same teacher as last year which is comforting.  They go to a small school where everyone knows each other and it's been such a positive experience.
Anyway, I made her teacher card and I'm also working on a few other non-card  things for some of the other people at their school.  For this I used Create a Critter Cricut cart, and a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin sentiment.  Just a couple more days to the first day of school!!  Thanks for taking a peek.

This meets the following challenges: Bitten by the Bug 2: Back to School, Crafty Sentiments Designs: Back to School, Die Cuttin Divas: Back to School, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.

Guy Birthday in Blue

Hello and can you believe we are already in August?!  School starts in a couple weeks, and I think we are all ready for a little routine.  Today I would like to share a card I CASE-d from Sandcastle Stamper.
I loved her simple design and didn't want to change it - my only addition was the sewing.  I really do love all the inspiration out there.  I don't feel I do well at masculine cards, but I think this will make for a perfect guy-birthday-card!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

This meets the following challenges: The Sisterhood of Crafters: Boys to Men, Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, and Creative With Stamps: Boys to Men.

Thinking Owl Die Cut Card

Hello and hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It was my first weekend in a long time I didn't sleep most of it away!  So I got a few things done, including this card using the latest Paper Play Sketch:
Unfortunately, a young woman at my church is going through a rough time, so I'm putting together a little basket on behalf of the church and this card to go along with it.  The owl is from Cricut Paisley Cachemire, and the sentiment is from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

This will also be entered in the following: Crafting With Friends: Anything Goes, and Simply Papercraft: Anything Goes.

Bugaboo Christmas Tags

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful week!  As for me, been busy with work, VBS, and trying to catch all the back to school sales.  I probably spend more in gas going from store to store just to get pencils and crayons for 25cents each.

Anyway, Christmas in July is still in full swing at Catch the Bug.  Monday was ABC day (Anything But a Card) - but you have until tomorrow to enter ANY of the challenges.
I made a couple very quick tags - using non-traditional colors and paint samples from Home Depot (that have been lying around for a few years).  So, this is just a reminder to enter any or all challenges by tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
