Cupcake Girl

Hello all!  We were blessed with a late vacation to Great Wolf Lodge, and if you have never been to one, you MUST take a look.  It's a water resort that is much more than just a water park.  Needless to say, the girls were thrilled...and exhausted!  Me too, but in a good way with great memories.

Anyway, I'm here sharing a card for the latest Catch the Bug Blog challenge: Bingo (click on link for bingo card):
I'm going with Sentiment/Sparkle/Bugaboo Image.  And the Bugaboo image I am featuring is from Birthday Girl Set.  The layout is from Splitcoaststampers (297) and the sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I haven't used one of their layouts in forever but sometimes, they are such a great starting point when I'm stuck.  So I hope you will join along if you get a chance this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Daisy Girls Stamp

Hello and yay the week is almost over!  With the girls back in school, it's time for weeks to fly by and living life in a blur!  But that's ok.  Although the other night I was thinking about Bean and how more than half of her life with me at home is almost over and I couldn't imagine my life without my babies by my side....brought a tear to my eye.

But on a happier note, I'm here to share a Bugaboo card using an older but still much loved image.  Actually, I've had this one for a while and never colored her up:
She is Bugaboo Stamp Kidz Daisy.  Daisies are my favorite flower!  I'm also using Sentimentals Cricut Cart for the stamp die cut.  Also, for more Bugaboo inspiration, please visit Catch the Bug Blog.  So just a short post today.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

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.

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.

Teal Snowman Fancy Fold Christmas Card

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a card to kick off the Christmas in July Celebration at Catch the Bug Blog!  All week long there will be mini-challenges and today's challenge is Sparkle & Shine!
I'm featuring the snowman from the Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Blocks Digi Stamp set.  So there are three adorable images - and I enlarged it and used just the snowman.  I used sequins for the sparkle, and if you look closely, I added a little shine to his nose and hat.
Not only that, but I even made this a fancy fold!  I saw this on pinterest and just HAD to try it for myself.  Super simple and I think it really adds interest.  Plus it got me out of my usual rectangle rut for a brief moment.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  So join us all week long with lots of inspiration and chances to win Bugaboo Stamps.

Hello all and hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today I sent my "baby" off to camp for the week...and I don't know if I will survive.  I mean, who will make sure she eats right?  Brushes her teeth?  Puts on sunscreen?  There are so many things that she still needs a mama for and I'm not there to meet those needs!

Teddy with Umbrella

Hello all.  Softball season/games have officially begun, so we will be running around like crazy for the next few months.  Anyway, I'm here to share a card for this weeks Catch the Bug Blog challenge: Raining Cats & Dogs:
Now, I noticed the other DT members created cat and dog cards....and I went with rain!  I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Umbrella Teddy, and I also attempted a shaped card inspired by Creating in Carolina's shaped cards (she's done several and I always love them) - but I think I missed the mark a bit.  I love the image and had fun coloring him, but I'm thinking a shaped card wasn't the best idea.  Well, at least I gave it a try.

Girl with Heart Balloons

Hello all and Happy Tuesday!  I've been in bed for a couple weeks with a respiratory infection - and I'm still exhausted!!  But I'm here to share a card for this weeks challenge at Catch the Bug blog which is ANYTHING GOES!!
I did one of those die cut gate folds from Splitcoaststampers tutorial found here.  It closes with a tuck under the circle/heart.
The picture makes it look like the opening is crooked, but it was die cut and looks pretty good IRL.  I always like anything goes - since it makes it easier to make a card with a purpose.  This was obviously for Valentine's Day.
Another project for Valentine's Day are these little origami pockets for the girls' teachers.  I found the super simple folding instructions on Pinterest.  All of these feature Bugaboo Stamps' Make it Snappy Girl Valentines Day.  This image also comes without a sentiment so you can personalize with your own sentiment.  So join in this week if you can!!
