Bugaboo Fan of the Month

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I would be interested in being the Bugaboo Fan of the month for May. Of course I had to jump on the chance. Bugaboo has such a great variety of images and the DT is so fun and talented. It was fun having my bio in the Bugaboo monthly newsletter. (Pssst…. If you don’t get the newsletter, you might want to sign up HERE. In each letter there are discounts, news tidbits and freebies.) And, I get to participate with the DT in the Catch the Bug challenge. This week’s challenge is “Anything Goes”.


I have needed several “Get Well” cards lately and used the opportunity to use Bugaboo’s Bug Jar – Bugs to make this card. I love the entire Bug Jar line at Bugaboo, but for some reason this one just makes me smile. I think it is the little bug peeking over the top of the jar.




When I started typing up my post, I noticed you can’t see the entire sentiment. The ticket says “Caught A Bug?”. I would take a new photo for my post, but I already mailed the card off. Sorry…


Did you notice the cute yo-yo flower on my card? I have to admit I didn’t make it. I won it in a package of blog candy goodies from my blogging buddy, Anita. I always admire them on her cards and was thinking about actually making some myself when I won some. Yippee!


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a fabulous week end! Don’t forget to stop by the Catch the Bug blog and enter the “Anything Goes” challenge.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.
