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 🙂

I did a bit of paper piecing for her gown and cape, I added some copics to the cape to make it stand out from the gown – easy, peasy!
It’s not your typical belated birthday card, but it is perfect for that diva we all seem to know 🙂

Let it Snow

let it snow copyCan you believe it is September already???  Last year at this time I had almost all of my holiday cards made.  This year I have but a handful ready to go.  No stamps used on this card.  I used a few of the digi elements found in the Snow Princess collection to make the scene – quick and easy.  I added sticles to the snow on the branches to give the image more of a 3-D apprearance.

If Friends

I hope you are enjoying the last few days of summer!  We’ve had a cool rainy summer with only a couple of days that I consider to be on the warm side.  I can feel fall in the air.  With the kids back in school, it won’t be long and the leaves will start to turn colors!

As you may have noticed, I Love, Love Nitwit Collections digi papers. I have stacks of papers I purchased over the years that are just sitting in my craft room. I love how I can print just the size of paper I need for my project and the fact they are scalable makes them even more wonderful. I anxious await each new release, in fact I just purchased their newest release yesterday – I just haven’t had a chance to play with it (think of your morning cup of coffee;hint,hint!).

Thanks so much for the visit!  Can’t wait to see your creations,  Dee
