Live, Love, Laugh and be happy.......

It's time for a New Release image from Bugaboo Stamps.  Would you look at that little darlin?  Isn't she adorable?!!!!!  I featured here on this "all occasion" card, but she would be perfect for just about anything from Thinking Of You cards to Birthday cards.  You decide.

I  colored the image using a combination of PSE 12 and Copics.
Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

Freebie Friday

Good morning and how are you doing?  We enjoyed our summer vacation at Catch The Bug but it's time to get back on track with a Freebie Friday image for you to grab.  Would you look at these cute little pea pod babies?!!!!   They are adorable and make  for a great We're Having Twins birth announcement so that's exactly what I did here.

I colored them using a combination of PSE 12 and Copics.  The sentiment was created using PSE.  The main panel with the image is just one layer.

It was great getting back in the swing of things.  Be sure to go and grab your free image from Bugaboo Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  TTFN

Rock A Bye Baby

It's a baby blog hop surprise for Min!!!

Min is one of the coordinators for Catch The Bug and she puts in numerous hours helping our team to run smooth and she just happens to be pregnant with her first baby!!!  A baby girl as a matter of fact.  We thought it would be fun to surprise her with a BABY BLOG HOP before her little one arrives!

You should have arrived here from the talented Angela Pruisman's blog, Just Monkeying Around, but if you didn't and would like to join us on the hop, head on over to Catch The Bug to get started!

Here is the card I made for Min featuring Bugaboo Stamps Boo Peeker Bottle

I colored the image using PSE 12 and added some depth using Copic markers.  I thought it would be cute to make a baby head band and use it as an accent on the card.  It's been a while since I did any crocheting, but this was pretty simple and will be useful.
Min and Glenn, I just want to say a big congratulations to the both of you!  This is a joyous event in your lives.  Before you know it you'll be asking each other, "what did we do before we had kids?".  They are a gift from God and I know that you will be great parents.  Being the mom of three grown children, my motherly advice I want to share with you is, take the time to sit and rock that baby.  The dishes, laundry and everyday stuff will always be there waiting for you, but babies grow so fast and before you know it your looking back, wondering where the time went.  My dear friend gave me the same advice when I was starting out and boy was she right.  

Now it's time to head on over to the fabulously talented Billie Andersons blog, Ink On My Fingers.

Whose A Happy Camper?

You will be when you see the New Release image from Bugaboo Stamps.  He's  AKV Men Camping and he's got his gear on and he's ready to be yours!  

Check out the card I made featuring him:

Using the PNG file, I copied this image onto an outdoor background using PSE 12 and then colored him using Copic markers.  This was the first time for me to try this technique and I have to tell you, my fingers thanked me.  No more cutting with those tiny scissors.

That's all I have for today.  Don't forget to check out the new release images at Bugaboo Stamps.

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

Challenge Time

Whew!  What a great time we had last week with all the challenges.  I had a very busy schedule this 
week and took a little break from everything but I'm back this morning with a fun challenge for you.  It's a photo challenge, so let your creativity be inspired and take it wherever it wants.  

Here is the photo:

And here is my all occasion card featuring one of Bugaboo Stamps new images, Bacon In The Sun.

Don't you just love that pig!  He looks so chill!

I colored him using Photoshop and then added some depth using my copic markers.  I kept the layout and details pretty clean and simple, letting him be the star of the show.

Now that I've shown you my interpretation, I would love to see yours!  

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

I absolutely love our annual Christmas In July at Catch The Bug, don't you?!!  It's filled with fun challenges, great prizes and loads of fabulous Bugaboo  inspired projects.  The best part is you will be able to check off some of those Christmas cards or projects from your to do list! You can never start too early on Christmas!

 So let's get this party started with the big, jolly guy himself!


We're kicking off our celebration with a blog hop, but if you started at the beginning you already know that and came here from Angela's blog.

 If you just came here to check out my blog, and want to hop along, the best place to start is here at the beginning.

Here is my Santa card featuring Bugaboo Stamps AKV Santa-presents.

Keeping it kind of simple on this one.  I colored the image using a combination of Copics and PSE 12 , then added the snowflake embossed side strips just to punch it up a bit. I still felt like it needed a little something more, so I added the snowflakes and ribbon.  Still simple but fun. 
Now  it's time to head on to Billie's blog, the next stop along the hop.
