Yahoo it's Saturday and time for a NEW Challenge at the Sisterhood!!!

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers has another fantastic challenge for this fortnight!! V is for Vegan but we want to see animals on your card!!! totally opposite to what I thought it might be (silly me)  Since I had the idea way back when, printed the image from Bugaboo Stamps then tucked it away in my "DT" book  so I wouldn't lose it as that seems to be my way of operating these days.  Anyway I thought it was perfect for the time of year and the challenge as well as a tad snarky.


One more Christmas card for my stash!! I decided to emboss the background patterned paper with a pawprint embossing folder, I'm pleased with how it looks. The image and sentiment are a set from Bugaboo Stamps


 What a sad look on his face and tears too.


Inside finished with a Kraftin' Kimmie sentiment set sorry for the fuzzy picture but you can read it

Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Challenge ~~ Day 6 ~~ colour challenge

I'm finally caught up until morning!!! I have had fun playing along this year and so far I have used all Bugaboo images.  I'm not fond of colour challenges when they have mega colours, I prefer ones with only three or four but I found a patterned paper that had mega colours and they matched. Have a peek.


Now this moose is just adorable with all those baubles hanging from his antlers and a moose is very Canadian which is why I added the  sentiment ~ EH?


I coloured the baubles with spica glitter pens to give them som sparkle.


I couldn't resist using the sentiment from High Hopes because we are Canadian.

Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Challenge ~~ Day 6 ~~ colour challenge.

Thanks for stopping today to check out my blog, one more challenge tomorrow and it's Freebie Friday!!!

Catch The Bug Holiday Chaos ~~ Day 4 ~~ Bingo

For Tuesday's prompt I chose another Bugaboo image, I had printed and coloured a few to have on hand when I was doing a tag challenge and some just because I wanted a few extra cute cards for the Holidays.  The challenge for day 4 is Bingo and I chose Die cut/3 layers/ribbon it could also qualify for Sentiment/Free/3 layers and the bottom row too Plaid/bugaboo/ribbon when I think about it the only item that isn't on my card is the pearls.


Plaid ribbon, sentiment (Kraftin' kimmie) traditional colours and for me as always 3 or more layers and last but not least it's a Bugaboo Stamps image.


Close up of the sentiment.

Day 5 of the Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug..............

Day 4 will follow soon, I think with having 3 images coloured I got confused on the days well I know it won't be far behind. Again I used a Bugaboo Image, one I've had printed for a while since I know who I'm sending this card to.


What could be grumpier than a grumpy kitty with "hubby's" favourite Christmas saying .

The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with Stampin'up's word bubbles.

I like to Move it, Move it!!! Challenge #332 at Shopping Our Stash.

What a fabulous challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ Move it, Move it!!! (include something that moves on your project ~ Shaker, wobbler, slider, googly eyes. easy peasy right?  Since I'm still in Christmas mode I made a winter wobbler card.


Silver and blue one of my favourite pairings, Olaf is a digi from Sassy Studio designs. The background is embossed with a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, I got it before I even had a die cutting machine, everything except the let it snow is 4 to 15 years old. 


Since I used a wobbler I tried to get a picture of how it moved (if I could have figured out how to take a video I would have.)


Finished the inside with a simple sentiment.

Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Day #2 ~~ A Sketch

As usual I'm a bit behind on my days for Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos.  I love a good sketch and the prompt for Day 2 (Sunday) is a really good sketch. although I took a few liberties with it you can see the sketch.


I love this snowboarder from Bugaboo Stamps, I have used it many times and never get tired of colouring him up. 


I sparkled up the white part on his hat and used paper glaze from Plaid on his protective goggles.


Elizabeth Craft Designs die  let it snow was used for the words.


Last half of the sentiment die cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
