color challenge

The challenge this fortnight at Catch The Bug is a color challenge using this imge:


As most of my followers know, I always make and give all of my co-workers birthday cards...I usually will either let someone who knows them better than me, pick one from my stash, or if they can't find one, let them tell me what they thing would be a good fit.  This was one of those situations.  I let my boss pick since it is her right hand's birthday...  She said it needed to be super sarcastic and needed to point out how "OLD" she is (well, she is only 15 yrs YOUNGER than me)...LOL  Someone else said "it needs a pile of poop"...  I instantly thought of this set from Bugaboo and had to make this card.  This is the Oh Crap set.  The sentiment is mine...  I used a hole punch to do the holes in the pile of pooh, then layered an orange layer under it so the holes wold stand out better.  I added some dies (one of almost all of the colors in the scheme.  I added a bow and put gems on the body of the flies.

Nutty Birthday

This is a fun new image from Bugaboo.  It is called "Nuts About My Dad".  I chose not to use the dad sentiment since I do not have any dads in my world.  Instead I chose to use word dies and turned it into a Birthday Card.  I added a strip of ribbon, two buttons with hemp twine and a hemp twine bow.  I used three gems in the upper corner.

If It Ain't Broke

This fortnight's challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs is "Embellishments".  We have two great sponsors for this challenge, Yampuff's Stuff and Oddball Art.

This card was made using an image from Yampuff's Stuff.  This is Wrench Girl.  Even for the theme being "embellishments" I kept this fairly 'clean'.  I used dies, a flower, a leaf and a bunch of gems as my embellishments.  The sentiment is my own.

Birthday Ice-cream

This week's challenge over at Catch The Bug Blog is a "bingo" challenge:

For my "bingo" I went with Stitching, 2 images merged and orange.  The two images I merged were Sketchy Ice Cream and an image from Sweet Treats Set.  I used some green pearls, black and orange flowers and a black bow.  I used a die that has the stitching around the small square and drew the stitching around the larger square.

CRS

Sometimes I wonder if I suffer from it or enjoy it...I guess it depends on the situation...  This fun image is from Catch The Bug and is called JJ CRS Can't Remember.  This fortnight's sketch from Stella Says Sketch is this:

For my card I chose to make it square.  I went a bit flipped on it with the flag and image being to the opposite sides.

Birthday Bird Hugs

A while back I won the opportunity to be a guest designer over at the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog!!  I'm so excited to have this opportunity!  :)  This is my first make and it is for the Saturday challenge.  The theme this week is 'anything goes'.  I'm using BugBdayBird2 for this card.  I added some gems, bows, drew some "stitching" and used dies and punches.
