Well, For Fox Sake!



Good Morning, Bloggers and Happy Valentine's Day!  It's new release day at Catch The Bug and we some awesome new release images in the store, today, in the Bugaboo Stamps store! We also have some awesome crafty creations for your viewing pleasure, on the Catch The Bug blog! Come on over and check out the new release creations from the super duper design team!

Can you believe that I farted around (Ooops, yes, I said farted!) and didnt get Valentines mailed out, in time?! Shame on me, I know!  I have a male friend to whom I ALWAYS send cards on holidays and special occasions - Unfortunately, I missed the boat for Valentine's day this year, so I've made my friend this card, as a belated Valentine's card. I've used this cutie new release image, Bugforfoxsake, from Bugaboo Stamps, The outside sentiment says "For Fox Sake." The inside sentiment, which you cant see, because, oops again, I forgot to take a pic of the inside of the card, before I mailed it yesterday) says "I'm late for Valentine's Day." I've used all papers from my stash, for creating this card.  It's a masculine card, so I've used masculine colors and papers, with no embellishments. My card layout uses the sketch at Sketch Saturday

What A Bundle of Joy



Today starts our Sunshine and Smiles Challenge at Catch The Bug! Get out your crafty supplies and create something to link up with us, for your chance to win! it could be anything - As long as its something that brings you, or others, sunshine and smiles!

I love children, so thats one thing that brings me sunshine and smiles, regardless of the weather or the season. So, Im approaching this challenge from this unique angle! My card uses the image, Wee One Fairy - Look Back, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  All papers are scraps from my stash. Oh and, Who doesn't love sparkle, right?! Little gemstone footprints and handprints have been used to embellish and add sparkle and shine.  The wings have been given some glittery shine with a Clearstar Gelly Roll Pen. I used pink and white gingham ribbon to add a handmade bow as the finishing touch to this card. The sentiment is punched using circle and scalloped circle punches.

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman



Good Morning! I thought I would show off a different type of craft today - New year, something new, right?  I wanted to show you this adorable little snowman that I made as a Christmas Gift for a co worker.  I actually made several, in different color combinations. This is just one of them. (Silly me forgot to take pics of the others. I am just now getting a chance to post the pic, now that the holidays are over and things have settled down.

This cute little guy is made entirely of different types of socks, with the exception of his face, which is made from buttons. I've also used a cluster of gold glittery balls and greenery, to embellish his hat.  I've named this little fella Herbie.  WHy? I have no idea - He just looks like a Herbie to me. :D

I decided to enter this cutie in some challenges. *DISCLAIMER* I did attempt to look over the challenge rules for each of these blogs.  I entered only in challenges that did NOT specify it had to be a paper craft or use a stamp or markers. I apologize, if I've entered in a challenge that only allows paper crafts. If that is the case, please let me know and I will be sure to mark that on my list of challenges. It is never my intention to enter challenges where the craft type is not accepted.
