Oh Snap with Birdie Brown

Hello all and Happy Monday!  I meant to share this earlier, but I've been a little busy....with life and that "job."  Actually, I love my job, but it really does tend to get in the way of my hobbies.
This is Birdie Brown's April freebie!  Saw it, fell in love with it, and paper pieced it.  I don't go anywhere without my camera and my family is kind enough to pose just about anytime and anywhere.  I used some fairly bold paper - hopefully they're not too dark or over powering.

That's my quick share for today.  Thanks so much for dropping by!!

Going Retro with Bugaboo

Hello and Happy Saturday!  The challenge this week at Catch the Bug:*VLW4CzL3AUIVA1IMUQZmCNVgUHwKycNepl9QNNEPZCyiULzRIaHpwT7BoVeIxMdya3m8rztpJ9UCD-TeVgKgXb4Y47B/April2013ColorInspiration.png
I used to LOVE these candy bracelets and necklaces....and now Beanie cherishes these sweet jewels.
I also wanted to keep the feeling of the "good ol' days" that came to mind when I saw the color combo pic and used Bugaboo's Good Times for my ATC.  I put a few paper clips on the side to give a little scale.  Hope you get a chance to play along this week, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Sympathy with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring Doodle Pantry's Lily Collection.  I don't think I have ever made a sympathy card, but I was in need for one.  So this is my "mail out" this week.
I used Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs for the sentiment (inside and out).  Plus, my inspiration is a beautiful card by Pat at Stamp, Paper and Ink.  I never thought of making a card without some kind of designer paper.  Just plain ol' cardstock!  Hopefully this will be well received in a time of loss.

Awwww Shucks

Hello.  I've got a quick post for you today.  Hopefully this has already made it to the right place and I can freely share it here.
I was late with a birthday and wanted to make something a little fun.  Every now and then I get out of my comfort zone and make a fancy fold.
I thought I'd add some "dog stuff" to the sides for added interest.  No sewing at all, but I was pretty pleased with it if I do say so myself.  The dog and bones are from Clear Dollar Stamps, the sentiment is Create with TLC, and the hydrant and fence is from MyGrafico.

Lettuce Celebrate

Hello and hope you are enjoying your weekend!  I'm sharing this week's challenge at Catch the Bug:
I picked Pastel Colors, Bugaboo Image, Embossing.
I'm featuring Garden Bunny Lettuce.  And if you're wondering about my embossing, check out my bunting.  Are you wondering about my sentiment?

LOL!  Feel free to click and save the sentiment if you think you'd ever find use for it.  Well, that's it for today.  We have a wedding to attend for a cute, young couple at church followed by a birthday party for one of Beanie's schoolmates.

Fruit Hat and a Quiz

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'd like to share a couple cards using new mid-month releases from Doodle Pantry.  Usually there is only one big release at the beginning of each month, but this month we get TWO wonderful releases.
My first card features what I consider to be a super fun and whimsical Fruit Hat.  First thing I thought of was a feisty little latina named Carmen Miranda.  Then I thought of a wonderful song by Dorothy Fields sung by Billie Holiday.

My second card features the new Notebook Digi Paper.  I've been wanting something like this for the longest time, and now I have it!  I just see so much versatility in this!
I simply placed my question and little drawings on top of the notebook paper, sizing it to A2 card size.  Adhered to kraft paper and punched my holes.  Super quick and a little cheeky.  So check out all the new releases and inspiration can be found at the Doodle Pantry Blog!

And I attempted a fancy fold on this one:

This was kind of fun to make.  Here's a side view to see the steps better.

Time to Treasure with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Friday!  Today I'd like to share one of the latest Doodle Pantry releases.
This comes from the new Old Trunk set.  I went with some upbeat papers and colors and LOTS of sewing.  First, I cut out the entire trunk on polka dots, then I printed again on white and colored and cut out every piece of "leather" and "metal" and put those on top of the dots.  Visit the Doodle Pantry Blog for all the new releases and to see which set is FREE if you participate in April's challenge!!

Owl Be Here with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  I've been trying to make some "friendship" cards to actually send out...the hard part is actually getting them in the mail.  BUT, I have decided to mail out one card a week, hopefully to touch someone's life and put a smile on a loved one's face.
I'm using Quirky Owl from Doodle Pantry plus the sentiment.  This set also comes pre-colored, which is great for quick cards.

Mother's Day with Bugaboo

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We sure did!

Today I'm here to share a new release from Bugaboo Stamps.
I thought this little guy was perfect for my DH's card to his mother for Mother's Day.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I was going for simple, masculine, yet sweet.
