A Quick Share..

Hi, everyone! 
Yes, I am still on my crafty-break-ation, but I was doing some reading this morning while waiting for some downloads on my computer and I came across a good article that I wanted to share. It's about copy-right in the craft world. Just a few good practice ideas for us crafty folks to keep in mind, I think. :)

to go to the article.

I hope you are staying warm! Enjoy your almost-weekend!

Stamps and Punches for Sale

Hi, everyone!
I have listed the last of the stamps and punches that I am selling, all at deep discounted prices, in my ebay store. This will be the last time they are available, with the exception of four sets that may be relisted due to an un-paying buyer from last week.....but those will be up in a few days if the payment isn't received. So......take a look, spread the word! Once the week is over these items won't be listed again individually.

CLICK HERE to go to my store main page.

I will be listing a lot of new-to-me vintage jewelry over the next two weeks, and a few Vera Bradley purses and totes, too! If you like girly stuff, be sure to come back and visit me! :)

Thanks, everyone!

Click Image to Enlarge

Hi, everyone!

Today is a very special day.........it is the beginning of the 
Bugaboo Stamps 5th Birthday Bash Week!

I know you didn't expect to see any craftiness out of me for a while, what with taking a break to manage some other things in life, but I could not let this date pass without wishing Bugaboo Stamps  a very big 
Happy Birthday!!
Bugaboo Stamps is responsible, in part, for my love of digis, afterall! Jodie creates some AMAZING images every week! When she says there's "something for everyone" in her store, she's not kidding! Not only is she an incredibly talented artist, but she is also super sweet! I am very proud to be part of her team of talented designers, and glad to call her a friend. 
Jodie......a big, huge cyber-hug to you on this momentous milestone!!


Okay. okay.....enough "mooshy-gooshy" from me, right?! lol!! I will stop with it, already, and move on to my card for the day.

To kick off the week, we are having a
Birthday Big-Top BINGO Challenge!

My card uses one of the images out of the Mini Set - Birthday Girl. I had not used her before today, and I think she is simply precious, don't you?!
I chose to use the BINGO Squares: Balloons, Stripes, Bright Colors.
You can join in the fun by choosing your three squares for your creation, and then posting it over on the Catch the Bug Blog Inlinkz for a chance to win some great prizes!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Winter BINGO at Catch the Bug!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! We are hosting our monthly B-I-N-G-O Card Challenge! This is going to be my last card posted, for quite some time. I will still be helping out on the Catch the Bug Blog, but I won't be actively creating any new cards for several months. I thank you all for your support, in the form of leaving comments, and I'll see you again soon! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and a safe and healthy New Year!

Without further ado , here is this weeks Catch the Bug 
Bingo Card:

Isn't this BINGO Card awesome?! So many choices!
You may choose three squares: horizontal, vertical, or diagonal!

For my BINGO squares, I chose to use the "Bugaboo Image""Snow/Snowflakes"  and the "Bling" squares. 
My card features the Bugaboo Stamps Kidz - Winter Girl image. She is one of the newer   images at Bugaboo Stamps. What do you think?! I love her! Her 
cheeks are totally pinch-able!

I colored her in PSE, added a pretty winter sentiment, and some bling. I popped up the main image for some extra dimension. Pretty easy-peasy, really!

Which List are You on?! It's a 'Naughty or Nice' Challenge at Catch the Bug!


It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This week's theme has me using an image I have had in my arsenal for a long time, but have not put to a card. The image I am featuring is called JJ Christmas - Ornament. She's a sassy girl in this image, so I'm guessing she didn't quite make the cut for the 'Nice List'!
 Haha!

This week's theme is
Naughty, or Nice?

Oh....You Dirty, Dirty Girl!

Hi, everyone!
We are trucking along through our
Christmas Chaos Week 
at 
Catch the Bug!

Today, we are showcasing creations that will tickle your funny-bone....or so we hope!
We are showing off our
Humor Me Wednesday
with the twist of Christmas!

Normally, Wednesdays are reserved to highlight some of the whacky holidays each week at Catch the Bug, some of the lesser-known holidays, that is; today, though, we are creating some humorous Christmas Cards to share with you! 

For my card today, I am featuring the super-sexy, ever-so-snarky JJ Christmas Cheers image. I think one of my friends will get a chuckle out of JJ's antics!

I colored up my image is PSE, as always, adding a sentiment that I found on the web. I added some glitter gel pen to her boot buttons, but it is hard to see in the photo (some things just never photograph well, right?!). I used some Bazzill Bling card stock for my image mat and dp mat. It also gives a bit of shine and shimmer to the card. I dug deep into my stash for the dew drops that I added, and the wreath charm is something that I picked up for a lady on Facebook group for selling/swapping scrapbook stuff (there are so many, and I apologize because I don't remember which one of them I found the charms on).

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT goodies at the Catch the Bug Blog, today! Don't forget to join in with your funny card, too, so you can be entered to win the daily prize!

Happy Crafting!

Beginning the Christmas Chaos with some Sparkle & Shine!

Hi, everyone!
Welcome to the beginning of the Bugaboo Stamps weeklong 
Christmas Chaos
events!

Today we are kicking off a week of Christmas celebrations. Every day we will present a challenge for you to use to create a project, and enter it into the Inlinkz fir a chance to win some great Bugaboo Stamps prize packs! (Be sure to checkout Catch the Bug Blog for all the details!)

For todays challenge, we want you to create a project using some
Sparkle & Shine!

For my card, I am using the Fancy Sunbonnet - Winter Birdhouse image.
I used a bunch of Stickles, Crystal glitter glue on all of the "snow". It didn't turn out as sparkly in my photo as it actually is in my hand, but I think you can at least see some of it. I colored my image in PSE, then did the Stickles, matted and added a snowflake brad.  I think this will be handy for my post-Christmas mailings! :)
