Skeleton Scarecrow

Skeleton Scarecrow Halloween

So one of the girls at work wanted a Halloween card for her mom that likes scarecrows. Free Dearie Dolls has a ton of scarecrow images. She just happened to have this skeleton scarecrow and the girl said it was perfect. Then she said “make it spooky”! Well this is as spooky as I could get with the spooky cute image! She loves it so that is good! I used Sketch #4 from the October Card Sketch Challenge.

Valentine’s for a Secret Pal/Secret Sister



Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!   Guess who?

When I saw this adorable image was the January Digi of the Month at Deedee’s Digis I was so happy I played last month….because that meant I got it free! I thought this would make a cute Valentine card for a secret pal/secret sister.  Which I have a standing order with one of the ladies at the retirement home to make a secret pal card for each holiday so I’m always on the lookout for good images that can be used! I wanted it to have a Valentine feel without it being too lovey.  I used the color version then used the outline version to paper piece the blue part of the hat and sweater. I wanted the cream color to be the main color instead of white so I cut the snow out and only left a little on the mailbox. And with all the cold weather and snow we are having lately we just might have snow covered mailboxes for Valentine’s Day! I used i {heart} card sketches #51 as my inspiration (I love her sketches!). I think her secret pal is a female but I think with these colors it could go either to a female or male.

And you know you have way too much cardstock when the patterned paper states it matches 4 Bazzill Cardstocks and I had everyone of them!! I actually think that is being well prepared!

Bingo Birthday at Bugaboo Stamps


Well Bugaboo is turning 4 years old and is celebrating all week long. I’m trying so hard to play in the challenges but with a full work week I’m not sure what I will get done! But I did manage to get one of the challenges done!

St Patrick's Bear

I used My Favorite Things Card Sketch #159 as my inspiration.


1) Catch the Bug Challenge Blog – Saturday, January 18 – Bingo – Birthday Theme/ hop


I did a diagonal line from the bottom left – Bugaboo Image, Free, Ribbon. I decided to do a St. Patrick’s card and do a birthday card later in the week….pretty sure the theme was open as long as you did a line on the bingo board.

2) Sentimental Sundays Challenge #190 – More than 3 layers

3) Inky Chicks Challenge #21 – Bingo Board – any 3 on the board. I did metal embellishment, tag, ribbon.
