Spring Chick

I love this new release from Bugaboo!  This is Spring Bird - Summer Dress.  I used some floral designer paper, a green doily, some lace, flowers and pearls.  I added a touch of glimmer to the bows on her head and dress.

Hording Toilet Paper?

With all of the "missing" toilet paper out there...and hearing about all of those people who are running low, I think it was too perfect that MyBestie/Sherri Baldy created this awesome image with the sentiments and gave it away as a March freebie HERE!

For this card I used the current sketch challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.  Which looks like this:

Cloud Nine

The challenge this week over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog is a bingo challenge.  Here is the bingo board:


I went righ across the niddle (3 Layers, Bugaboo Image, and Players Choice - square gems).  I also went with green...  The sentiment and pig were cut using the Cricut.  I added googly eyes and put the pig onto an action wobbles spring so that way the eyes will move when you flick the pig.

You Deserve to have a great day

Check out this adorable flying bear that just so happens to be this week's New Release - Bear Balloon 02 over at Bugaboo!! 

This card was an attempt at something that went sort of wrong...But, it was still cute enough to share!  The way my Cricut cut out the outline I thought maybe I was supposed to cut it out once I had it folded...NOPE!  Oops!  But I wasn't going to start over.  LOL 


Thanks for looking!!  Now go grab this fun little guy!!

Be Like The Butterfly

This card was made for this fornight's 'Spring Fling' challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog.  We are being sponsored by Fabrica Fantasy.

For this card I used an image called Spring Butterfly.  These pre-colored images are great for those clean and simple cards.  For this one I did add layers using some pop dots and a bow.  I added some sparkle to the "butterfly" too!  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  That is all I did with this card.


Now I have to share a funny...  I was wearing a bathrobe when I was making this card.  You know how they have the lace inside so that you can tie the left side to the inside of the right to make it stay?  Well, I never use those...until this card.  Yep, while wearing the robe I tied the bow and cut it off of the robe.  LOL

Birthday Owl Shaker Card

I decided to try a shaker card again.  Not sure why I struggle with these so much?  This was made for this week's challenge over at Catch The Bug "Things With Wings".  I used the Bugaboo image called Birthday Hoot.  I added some googly eyes and put the owl onto an action wobbles spring, that way, when you shake the seqins/glitter the owl will wobble.

Get Well Soon

Being one of the many who has been down and out the last couple of weeks with a virus of some kind or another, I'm loving this week's Friday Freebie - Kidlet Doctor!

For this card I used my Cricut to cut out the base/frame, sentiment and of course my kidlet!  I colored the image using ink and chalk.


Thanks for looking!  Now be sure to head over to the Bugaboo Stamps Store and pick up this cutie!!

Birthday Kitty Box

I really love putting animals in these box cards.  This time I used this adorable kitty from Pattie's Creations called Nap Time.  The cat, flowers and box pattern were all cut using my Cricut and are all (except the cat) from a Cricut pattern.  The cat was colored using colored pencils, the pot was colored using a marker.

This was all made for the Anything Goes challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge Blog.

Still Hot



I kept this fairly simple by following the sketch to a tee, except for the 
bow that was used instead of the three gems.  I did add some Glossy Accents
as an accent on the car and her glasses.
