Friday Bugaboo challenge and cdacsc28







Friday is here! It's not my Friday yet, but that "Friday feeling" is still in the air, if you know what I mean. Today is the last day for Bugaboo's week of challenges, and the theme is anything goes, as long as it's Christmas related. Bugaboo is also sponsoring the sketch challenge at CDAC this week, so I thought I would combine them and kill two birds with one stone. They even provided a freebie for the sketch challenge! Jodie is so generous with her talent, it just blows me away! Thank you Jodie! I have included a pic of the sketch, along with my card of course! She is colored with Bics and Sharpies, and Gelly Roll pens. The sentiment is one of the many Studio Gs that I have. Well, I best get on with it and get this posted, we have some house cleaning to do. Take care! :)

Bugaboo Thursday challenge...SNOW!!







I don't know about the weather where everyone else is, but here in PA, it is hot, hot, HOT! Kinda makes it hard to think that in just a few short months the snow will be flying! Until then though, for today's Bugaboo challenge, we're all about snow! My card for today was quite the undertaking for me...even though I had the tutorial from SplitcoastStampers up on the computer screen, it still took me 3 tries to get the base right! But thankfully, once I finally did, it all came together. I used the ever adorable Poppi the penguin from Bugaboo again...me thinks I'll have to get more of these, as Poppi is just too cute!

Well, I should get this posted, as I have been wasting time in between watching the baby robins who are living on our front porch as they learn to fly...so cute! Take care! :)

Bugaboo Wednesday challenge AND JB29









Good day everyone! I am entering this card in two challenges today, the Wednesday challenge over at Bugaboo, which was to use this sketch, and the Jingle Belles challenge which was called Reindeer games...or to use a Christmas critter on your card/project. I hope this cute little turtle qualifies as a Christmas critter! Well, I gotta get supper outta the oven and link this up, so I'll wrap it up for now. Take care! :)

Bugaboo Tuesday challenge...cutting it close!





And no, that's not the theme of the challenge...I'm just very late in posting it! Chad and I went out of town this evening, and just now got back. Thankfully, I had my card made, photo'd and edited last night, so I can just talk a bit about it, and get it posted and linked up!





So, the challenge for today was to use this particular image from Bugaboo called Ruby Christmas Tree. Isn't she saucy? I colored her with a combo of Bics, Sharpies, colored pencils (skin), and Gelly Roll pens. The poinsettia is made by layering 3 of those wedding flowers from Michael's, and cutting another to make the leaves. I also added some MS fern punches to it with some gold Stickles for added sparkle.



Well, it's getting later and later as I type, so I'll close for tonight, and get this linked up over at Catch The Bug. Take care! :)

Bugaboo Christmas in July Monday challenge



I have high hopes of completing all the challenges Bugaboo is having this week during their Christmas in July and Jolly Good Time celebrations!! One card is done, and the plan is to make Tuesday's and Wednesday's tonight after I post this one. The challenge for today is to make a card/project using non-traditional colors. I have made a card with this color combo before, and really liked it, so thought it would be good for this one too...it's also secretly inspired by Dunkin Donuts' color combo of hot pink and bright orange! AND, I SWEAR, I had this in mind before I saw the gorgeous bag made by Bugaboo DT member Tammy A.


Well, I best get this posted and linked up, so I can move onto the next card! Take care! :)

JB28 and BBW9, all in one!

As the title implies, this card was made to cover two challenges, the one over at Jingle Belles, and the one being held by Bugaboo on both CDAC and PCP...hmmmmm, I guess technically that is 3 challenges, but who's counting! The image is Bobblehead Reindeer by Bugaboo...so cute!!! Jodie's images just speak to my cute-lovin' side! :) Anyhow, the challenge at JB is "Holiday Leftovers", aka use scraps to create your card. Bugaboo's challenge is the sketch. I hope this card fits the bill for both challenges! Well, gonna post this now! Take care til next visit!

Winter Wishes

Isn't this little guy so cute? He's called Poppi Xmas Candy Cane, and he's one of Jodie's adorable creations over at Bugaboo. I *LOVE* HIM!!!!!! I colored him with Sharpies and Bics, with a red glitter gel pen for the berries. Cut him out with Nesties and did some sponging while still in the die. The sentiment and snowflake are from a set I got a LONG time ago called Happy Everything. I had been wanting to try pleating ribbon for some time now, and finally did so on this card. The striped DP is from a pack I got at Target last year. The top section is embossed with the Swiss Dots EF. Believe it or not, I am actually entering this card in a few challenges:

Catch The Bug challenge blog: Anything Goes

Jingle Belles: Stars or Stripes forever

Catch The Bug on PCP and CDAC: wet and/or dry embossing

Well, it's late, so I best get to linking, and then to bed! Thanks for visiting! :)
