Princess

So Pretty in Pink!

HBPI think every little girl at one time or another dreams of being a princess.  When I think of little girls, I think of the color pink. A pink princess … what could be sweeter?

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

One of my brothers asked me for a card he could give to his new girlfriend – I really didn’t have anything I thought would be special enough and then I remembered a new digi I just purchases at 2 Cute Ink during their fall sale (sale goes until Sept 30th!).  I used a non-traditional fall color palette but I think it all works – what do you think?

It’s hard to tell but I fussy cut all of the leaves and layered them on top of the colored digi image to give a bit of a 3-D effect.

You are the Song in my Heart

Happy Thursday!

Sept 25th OBGEach week at Catch the Bug the Design Team likes to share some of the “older” Bugaboo images.  I think sometimes we get so excited to use our new images that we forget about those images we’ve had for awhile.  I’m here to inspire you with one of my favorite Stella and Gus images – I can just see my hubby and me morphing into these two characters :-)

Winter Rudi

RudiHello!  I actually had some time to play today in my craft room and here is my second holiday card I made today. I opted to use my favorite holiday color combination – aqua and red. I love the softer look of the aqua instead of emerald green. Just a quick post as I really do need to get a few thing done around the house, it’s just so easy to play instead of do housework :-)
