Have a Merry Holiday

The Bugaboo design team is back from vacation and let me tell you, it sure was needed!! This week at Catch the Bug, we're playing a little bingo...so fun!!

Here's my card, using the adorable Theodore Christmas Present from Bugaboo. I found this in my pile of printed off images so I went with it. For bingo, I'm playing the top horizontal line of embossing, ribbon and charm. I sure hope you can join us over at Catch the Bug for some bingo fun!

What's Up?

Thursdays at the Creative Playground is inspiration from the Imagine That Digistamp design team. I couldn't resist playing with the adorable Giraffe With Butterflies image...what a sweetie!!! I also used a piece of Giraffe Pattern digital paper, also from Imagine That Digistamp. A quick card, just the way I like it. And yes, that's a little piece of washi tape. I have so much of it, it's time to start using it!!! Now head over to the Creative Playground for more inspiration.

Frappuccino Anyone?

Here's my last coffee card, this time a cool frappuccino, topped with whipped cream and colorful straw!! I embossed the lid outline onto vellum so you could see the yummy goodness underneath. I seem to notice another trend besides the coffee theme...I've been using doilies with my projects, something I have never done before!!! Showing my feminine side I guess!! Hahaha!!

Coffee Cafe

Told you I was addicted to this Stampin' Up Coffee Cafe bundle!! Here is card #2...be ready for another one tomorrow!! I adore the designer series paper with its wonderful blue, greens and brown. A fabulous color combination.

Tomorrow morning Brian and I are flying out to Denver to visit with Phillip!! I can't wait! He needs our help buying a couch and coffee or end table, depending on how much room he's got. We've Facetimed so I have an idea of what his apartment looks like. I know I'll drive him crazy trying to give it the mother's touch!!! Wish us all luck!!

Well Done!

Our Clean and Simple challenge this week over at The Outlawz is a congratulations card for a sporting achievement. I was very generic with my sporting event, but I couldn't wait to use the Hooray Bundle from Concord & 9th. And this piece of pattern paper could not be more perfect! Now I hope you can join us the week at The Outlawz for our latest CAS challenge.

Life Happens, Coffee Helps

I am part of a Stamping Club over at Stamptastic Designs. Each month we receive via email a tutorial of 6 different cards. This month one of the stamp sets featured was the Coffee Cafe bundle from Stampin' Up. It just so happens I have that set but hadn't inked it up. I made the 3 cards featured in the tutorials plus 3 more inspired by the other cards!!! Seems that I can't put this set down now!!! So fun, quick and simple...just my style. Stay tune over the next few days as I show off the other two cards!

Challenges I'm playing along with include:
Southern Girls - Add some stamping
Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
Crafty Gals Corner - Bingo (Sentiment, Free space, Bow)

Flamingo Birthday

It's time for a little Thursday inspiration over at the Creative Playground. I absolutely couldn't resist playing with another flamingo set from Imagine That Digistamp!! This time I used Flamingo Birthday along with two of the wonderful digital papers included in this set. And surprise, I did a fancy fold card too (at least to me it's fancy since all I ever do is the standard A2 card!!). This is a Z-fold card...oh so simple yet really, really cute!!! I'm sending this one to my niece in Florida for her birthday in a couple weeks. I think she'll absolutely love it!! Now head on over to the Creative Playground for more inspiration. And while you're there, check out our monthly challenge too for your chance at winning a gift certificate to the Imagine That Digistamp store.
