Time to Celebrate!

Hello.  🙂  I’m back today as promised with a SIMPLE birthday card using another image from Bugaboo.  Not too many doo-dads, just a bit of trim, nothing fancy. 

Time to Celebrate!

I love these big ol’ smiley kids.  This image is A Kid’s View Birthday BalloonIsn’t she cute?  I tell ya, there are so many cute images in that store. I  had a hard time narrowing down my selection. 

I printed the sentiment from my computer using SNF Goody, a font I purchased a while back from Scrap n’ Fonts (only $3).  The little clippy thingy is a Karen Foster “Charm Pin Up Brad.”  I believe the intention is actually to hang a charm from it, but I turned it upside down and tied a scrap of ribbon around it instead.  I think it works both ways just fine.  🙂 

I’ll be back tomorrow with Kimmie’s Saturday Krafty Challenge!  Thanks SO much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hi everyone!  Now that I’m kind of “in between” releases, I wanted to take some time to play.  🙂

This week is Bugab0o‘s FIRST birthday, and although I don’t didn’t have many of their digi-images, this week they’re on sale for 60% off (through January 22nd), so I did a bit of shopping.  It’s all Jeanie‘s fault.  😉   I totally blame her… and her frog (…had to buy that image too).

Bugaboo has challenges all week long and today’s challenge is to make a birthday card.  I’m going with snarky Stella, Life of the Party …because this is almost “me.”  Ok…in a few years, lol.  (I didn’t buy anything TOO snarky, but I did laugh at all of them.  And trust me, I am NEVER the life of the party.  EVER.  I’m a quiet observer.)

I’m the Life of the Party

I  colored her with markers, added a bit of ground with pencils and used an older SFYTT that I’ve used many times before.  (It’s a fave of mine.)

To add just a little extra something, I colored over Stella’s glasses and balloon with a clear 3-d glaze pen.  (Those parts aren’t sparkly, just shiny.)

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Bugaboo birthday card…a very simple one.  (Simple is ok, right?)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Did I Stutter?

Hi everyone.  🙂

I was hoping to have a somewhat quirky post today to go along with my quirky card, but I have company arriving in less than an hour and a few last minute things to do.  Eek!  I have felt so behind… on everything…

Did I Stutter?


This is one of a few digi-images I recently purchased from Bugaboo Stamps.  I first saw them on Jeanie Witmer’s blog, The Spotted Chick.  She literally had me in stitches over these stamps (and her cards are always SO cute).   I was poking around the Bugaboo store last night and realized I’d be placing another order soon.  Oh my gosh, some of those sentiments are so darn funny.  The one I used here is very mild.

Ok…gotta run.  I’ll be back Wednesday with my first preview of Kraftin’ Kimmie’s June release!! 🙂 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
