New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo

Good morning all. I'm a bit late today with my post for the New Release over at Bugaboo but I have a pretty cute excuse....And his name is Cocoa. He is a 4 month old Chihuahua that one of my neighbors rescued from under a porch along with 5 or six others and a few that did not make it. All different litter mates from different adults. All put out in the cold, some nights freezing, and not even feed. So awful. He is nice and healthy now thanks to my friend and he is ours.
 Pendelton, is still a little stand offish. But he will come around. He did decide that the little tiny bed for the puppy is just the right size for himself. I walked around the corner last night and there he was curled up on top of the puppies bed. So cute.
 Now on to why we are really here today. NEW RELEASE day at Bugaboo. Woopie! How about a new Stella? A Stella Scene It? You will have to head over to the Bugaboo Store and grab one for yourself and then stop by the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and see all the great projects by the Design Team today.
For my card today I colored Stella in with Copics and then used some of my beautiful My Minds Eye papers.  used a gold Sakura gel pen to color the balloon in and a few other bits here and there and used some of my Snow Pen for Stella's hair.
 e flowers and butterflies are SVG cuts from LaLa Studios. Love them.
So I hope you all enjoy the new Stella today and our new puppy and Have A Great Day.

So run on over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and see what the design Team has to share with you today and then grab a cupcake or two and a cup of ...(whatever you like to drink) and get busy creating and join us this week for our Red Velvet Color Challenge.
For my card today I used Two of Jodie's fantastic Coffee Time Images( Espresso Yourself and Perk Up)  and you can find those Here in the Bugaboo Store.
I used My Minds Eye papers and the background piece is embossed with my Big Shot. I colored the image with Copics.
 The paper I printed the image is some watercolor paper and the Copics go on like melted butter. Yummy! I added some Stickles here and there as well as some Glossy Accents.

Have a Great Weekend everyone.

A Dilly Beans Valentine Layout

Well I was sorting and organizing the other day and came across a bunch of really cool elements that worked out perfectly for these photos of my Granddaughters. I hope you enjoy the layout.
For this I used Bo Bunny papers from last years two Valentine/Love Collections and some Valentine embellies from K & Co. The Images are all Dilly Bean Images. The four in the center are from one of Megan's New Collage Sheets and the two on opposite corners are Digi Images that I colored with my Copics.

 The hearts are on the Collage sheet also and when you pull on the heart.....
 Out pops a tag with another photo on it.
 Same with the Heart at the Top of the page.  the photo frame in the center is an SVG Cut( Mrs.Robinson's ) from SVG CUTs. I just love my Cricket and SVG Cuts.

 The little guy in the upper left corner Voodoo Doll #4 can be found Here. The Collage Sheet Here and the Big Eye Girl Here
 My Sweet Girls. Ahhhhhh!
It is always fun to take time to go through photos and make a layout or two.
I hope You all have a great Weekend.

There is a new Challenge Up at Dilly Beans Digis

Today we have a new Challenge at Dilly Beans Challenge Blog and I sure hope you come and play with us. Each week we get more and more entries and I just want to thank everyone for that.

So for the Challenge today we want to see Freaky? Whatever your interpretation of that is. I chose to use a couple of Megan's Big Eye Girls for my card today. #264 - Two Hearts Girl and #224 Mermaid. I used one of my paper plate mixing trays that I made a long time ago. I have a ton of altered papers in a box on my shelf and I really need to use them more.  I love this one.
Anyway, I was sort of having a hard time with the Freaky Theme until I came up with the idea for the Head by itself floating around in the water. I think that qualifies. Run over to the Challenge Blog and see what the Design Team came up with for you today.
 I used viva Pearl Pen for the turquoise dots and some tiny cut glass pieces from a Dollar Store Christmas ornament. Pretty cool hu?
I can't  wait to see what you all come up with this week.
I will be entering the following Challenges:
One Stitch At A Time: Round and Round

Friday Freebie at Bugaboo

I can't believe it is Friday again. What happened to the week? I did get my studio switched around and got a lot of consolidation done so I have more room so that's good. I have a layout almost finished and I made a few great cards this week.
So today being a Friday is a Bugaboo Freebie Day. Wooo Whooo! I had so much fun with this great image by Jodie. I colored it with Copics and then used a little Glossy Glaze to accent the nose.
The papers I used for this are from a Digi Kit from The Digi Chick called My Heart.  I printed the papers and elements on texture paper from WallMart and cut them apart and layered them up.

So run on over to the Bugaboo Store and grab your Freebie and stop by the Challenge Blog to see what the Design Team has to share with you today.
I will be entering the following Challenges today:

Jodie has some more of my favorite images over at Bugaboo this week. Wooo Whooooooo! Head over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and see what the Design Team has done with this wonderful image today and then go to the Bugaboo Store and pick up a few of your own.
For my card today I colored the Ava Image with Copics and then for the Heart I colored that Pink with copics, added a layer of Picket Fence Crackle Paint and when that was dry I added a thick layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint.
 The flower is made from a white dollar store Daisy, taken apart and then folded in thirds and then the three pieces are stapled together with 3 of the leaves. I sewed the button onto the flower and the glued on the 2 other buttons.
I really hope you all like this card and I hope you come back soon.

Today over at Bugaboo we are so happy to announce a new to us Challenge Blog that we will be Sponsoring. I hope you will go check out the Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog!

Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog
So the Current Challenge is to use buttons and a ribbon. That was easy enough. Using The Bugaboo Images Dino Heart 1, Dino Heart 2 and Dino Heart 3  I printed them out on Shrinky Dink plastic.
I colored the images with Copics and then punched two holes in the centers and then heated them up with my Heat tool. So much fun.
