Freebie Friday at Bugaboo

Meet Dottie
new member of the Bugaboo family
Isn't she sassy??
Personally I think she would make a
perfect redhead.
Unfortunately I don't have the right
copics for the job.  Some of the 
other DT members made her a blonde,
which also looks really good.  
Want to see?  Go to Catch the Bug
and see what the others did.

Oldie but Goodie at Bugaboo

It's Thursday so it's 
Oldie but Goodie day over at Bugaboo.
I love this paper and thought this image was 
a perfect fit.
I'm entering this one in
where "anything goes" 
this week.
I'm so glad that Christmas is literally
around the corner.
All the shopping is done, house is cleaned
only a few gifts left to wrap and groceries
to buy.  Huge sigh of relief
come Sunday.

Naughty list

Countdown to Christmas continues....
Have you been naughty or nice??
One of my favorite sketch blogs is 
I just love these Crabby Cathy

Sassy isn't she?

How cute is this little guy??
More bobbleheads released at 
Bugaboo today.
Can't wait to use this on some
Easter cards too. 
I paper pieced the inside of the ears and the 
pads on the feet.  
It's been fun making 
Christmas cards but I'm looking
forward to making some red and pink
Valentine's Day cards.
Don't forget about Bugaboo's
challenge this week.

Monday, December 20, 2010


Yeah, with shopping left to do, a menu to play and food to buy, plus a house to clean
and presents left to wrap......this is how I feel.  
Bugaboo is sponsoring a challenge over at Card Cupids.
The challenge is to use your favorite tool.  My FAVORITE tool 
is the irock.  Those little white "brad looking" things on my card.
Those are "rocks" put on with the irock.  It's a battery operated tool.  You place
the little rocks where you want them, then heat up the tool in a matter of seconds 
 and then place the tool on top of the rocks.  It in turn heats the 
glue on the backside of the rocks, melting them right to the paper.
They look like brads but without having to worry about prongs to hide.
It's genius and I use it ALL the time.

Stella :)

Oh, how I love Stella
from Bugaboo.
This is kind of how I feel lately.
Sad to say I know but
my list just keeps getting longer 
while my time gets shorter.
Wanted to get some card making 
in  today but doesn't look like that's
going to happen.
Had to go shopping instead.
I think I can probably finish up 
the rest of it in a few hours if
I really put my mind to it.
Anyway, hope this brought a
smile to your face :)

New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo

Yeahhhhh more BRATS!
Bugaboo has a line of "Brats"
they are so sweet.
Can't wait to see  the other ones.
Difficult to see in the picture but
I cut the legs off and popped them out 
on pop dots for dimension.
I embossed the background with
my scor-pal.
One of these brats would make
a perfect card for the winter
wonderland challenge going on now
over at the


Countdown to Christmas continues...
I find myself running in place.
So much to do, so little time and all
I want to do is stamp.
The Christmas spirit is slowly setting in
but it never really feels Christmasy
to me until THAT day.
My son asked Santa for a go-kart.
Luckily the Santa at the mall 
talked logistics with him and I think
he's given up on the idea.
My parents got him an electric scooter
which will have to be close enough. 
Created this card for a challenge at

Oldie but Goodie at Bugaboo

When I look at at this image I think of 
my brother and I
snooping for Christmas presents in the
One year when my parents left for a bit 
my brother and I unwrapped some of our
presents very carefully
and no one would of been the wiser but....
when my parents returned my brother got in
trouble for something that had nothing to
do with Christmas.
In the heat of the moment he blurts out
"Well, Amy got blue boots!!"
The cat was out of the bag.
We got in trouble and Mom said all the 
presents were going back.
She never did return anything though.
The next year the gifts were kept at my 
Great Grandparents house
until they were wrapped and our lives
were threatened.

I just love this paper.
I used a nestability to cut out the image.
I love that ribbon too.
It's big but it has wire in the sides
so you can shape it which makes ribbon
making easier.
There are little pearls on the 
scalloped ends.
Paper: Miscellaneous
Stamps: Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps
die: nestabilities
miscellaneous wired ribbon
