Catch the Bug Saturday Bingo Challenge March 17th, 2018

The challenge this Saturday over at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge is 'Bingo'.

I choose for my card the vertical line containing the requirements of a Bugaboo Image, Flower and Stripes.

I picked the image of the Sunbonnet lass  carrying a jar of strawberry jam for a specific reason.. My card  will be going to my sister who is our family and friend 's  jam lady. We all await eagerly for jam season and the gifts of love she gives us.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #207 Go Green.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #207 Go Green March 12, 2018

Judy is hosting this fortnight's challenge ! We want to see the major part of your project as green.

Please head over to Crafty Cardmakers for all  the challenge details AND  take a peek at the lovely work of the multi talented Design Team!

I used an image from Beccy's Place called Shabby Chic  Roses   Isn't it a beauty! I used the pre coloured version, added glue glitter and Stickles to the roses and made the  middle rose and the leaf just below it dimensional. The flower embellishments are from a garage sale grab bag.  I added three rhinestones as a final touch.

Catch the Bug Challenge NR March 6th 2018

New Releases!It is Tuesday and over at the "Catch the Bug" Challenge Blog that means it is new release day! The above card features a fabulous new digital stamp called  "MarchWord'! It can be found  on  the Bugaboo web site. 
 Please  go to the Catch the Bug site to view all the wonderful projects  using this stamp by the oh so talented DT. 

I wasn't sure at first what I could do with a March card as I had no female birthdays or special occasions for that month. I loved the image  and wanted to use it, so thought maybe it would make a lovely 'just because' card instead . I think my card turned out quite good and decided I will send it to one of my step-daughters. She is a big fan of anything purple or shades thereof.

Card Details
Size 5 1/4 x 5 1/4
Digital stamp 'BugMarchWord
