Sugar Nellie, my favorite stamp company from Scotland, has some new releases to show off, AND they are giving away some prizes!!! If you would like to check it out....or try to win something.... head on over to their site by clicking on the title of this post or their name above. I don't have many of their stamps, but the ones I have I LOVE!!! I was never a fan of Manga style images until I saw their Manga Fairy....love her. I suppose by now you can tell that I like Sugar Nellies a little.

It's Challenge Time!!!

Hello and Happy Saturday!!!

Today is challenge day at Bugaboo's Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.
This weeks challenge is a theme and sketch challenge.

The theme is April Showers....April showers bring May flowers.....any way you would like to interpret that. And Scrappy also created a wonderful sketch for us to use.


Here is the card I created with the Bugaboo character Skelekinz, isn't she cute!?!? And the sentiment comes with her, I love it.....but then I can't stop singing the song....it's a song I like so that's OK.

The rest of the Design Team created some amazing cards you should check out at the link to the blog above. It's also interesting to see how different all of our cards are for the theme.
This is a great challenge to join in because if you win you get 7 Bugaboo images,can you believe that??? 2nd and 3rd place also get a prize!!!
I can't wait to see what you create!!! Don't forget to check out all the rules at the blog link above!!
Have fun creating!!!

Bugaboo New Release Tuesday

****PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY DIGITAL TWO FOR TUESDAY POST, THANK YOU*****


Hello!!! Today is New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo Stamps!!!
Jodie has come up with some amazing new Earth Day images (I LOVE them all!!) along with some great Molly Moo images too!!! You can check them out here on the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and from there you can go to the store.

I chose this image today because my daughter is going to be holding up an Earth Ball at the end of a song in her spring concert on Friday. So, later I will have to use this image on a scrapbook layout. I also love this sentiment I found when I pulled out these Daisy Bucket, A Wondrous World papers.

This card is also for this weeks Challenge at Die Cuts R Us, where the Challenge is to use an earth or nature related element.



Hope you like it. THANKS for coming to see my New Release today!! See you soon,

Digital Two For Tuesday

Today I have the honor of being Guest Designer on the great site Digital Two For Tuesday(click here). I found Cora's site some time ago while searching for vintage images. Every Tuesday she has free vintage images. I was very glad to make some cards with these images and took it as a challenge from my "normal" style. I had a hard time deciding what to do with these and instead of doing something new, I think I ended up using the images in my style, which is not what I intended, but is how they turned out. If you like vintage or just want to check out some beautiful images you should really go take a look at the site!!!




On this card I used papers and cardstock from CTMH, tag die is Quickutz, flower dies are Spellbinders and flower diecuts are Melissa Frances.

All supplies here are from Melissa Frances Fresh Twist Line. Tag and flowers dies are Spellbinders and border punch Martha Stewart.

THANKS so much for stopping bye, I will be back very soon with more to share, hope to see you then!!!

Beautiful Bugaboo Freebies!!!

Hello Friends!!! I have been gone a while but am VERY glad to be back in stamping land!!! We went on vacation and the beginning was AMAZING (more on that later), but the end was not much fun. Things are finally back to normal and I am very happy to share a card with you today.

You may not know that Bugaboo Stamps has a Freebie Friday every week. Jodie, the owner and artist, offers 2 free images every Friday here on the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog. Yes, I am 1 day late, but I just had to share this cute Bee Bear with you. The images are available for 1 week so be sure to go check out what else is free this week.


Along with the Bugaboo image this card is made with products from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy line (all papers and ribbon). I fell in love with this line of products when I saw it!! Have any of you seen or used the fabric paper from this line?? It looks great. My digital image is colored with copics and the sentiment is from Unity Stamps. The 2 tag dies are Spellbinders and the border punch is from Fiskars.

I hope you like this card and image as much as I do and also hope you will return often to see more of these amazing Bugaboo Stamps that I will be sharing. There will also be a Challenge next Saturday the 24th.
THANKS for your visit,
