Thought You Could Use A Lift

Hello everyone! I hope you're all pulling out of the winter blues and starting to think of Spring! I think I've got  Spring Fever! It was sooo nice last weekend, and I spent a lot out time outside enjoying the nice weather.  Of course, it didn't matter that I had tons of stuff inside I needed to do - That all went out of my head once the sunshine and warm temps were here! All I could think about was finally having a break form the cold and snow.

Today is Oldie but Goodie Thursday, at Catch The Bug and, as usual, we're featuring some of the older images. Bringing them back into the spotlight to remind you how many awesome images there are to choose from in the Bugaboo Stamps store.

For more Oldie But Goodie inspiration, check out Catch The Bug - Lots of creative genius from some of my other teammates!

Anyway, I finally made it into my craft room to do some crafting and this is what I came up with for you. This card is perfect for anyone going through breast cancer, or who's just feeling down and could use a little pick me up.

My card, today, uses the image and sentiment set, Some Support - Use A Lift, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used this fun new paper I bought, from Stampin Up.  The blue polka dotted buttons are from my stash. I threaded them with some green and white twine, to bring out the green and white in the umbrella paper.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Challenge #154 Anything Goes at One Stitch At A Time
Out Of The Recycle Bin (Buttons) at Come And Get It
Buttons or Bows at Whoopsi Daisy

Happy Keester

Well, finally, Spring decided to finally show up and bring us some warm temperatures - And just in time for Easter. I was beginning to think the warm temps were never going to show up, but I'm so glad they have!

Anyway, we're back today with a new challenge for you at Catch The Bug. We're challenging you to an ABC challenge - Anything of your Choice, Bling and Cardstock. This is an easy one, folks, so get our your crafting supplies and start creating! We want to see lots of players this week!  Remember, there are awesome digi prize packs up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps!

Check out Catch The Bug if you need more creative inspiration!

Since Easter is tomorrow, I just had to make an Easter card, for today's challenge.  MY project uses the image and sentiment set,  Gus Happy Keester, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. This is a new fold for me - A vertical step card.  It was very simple to do and I love how it turned out.  I wanted a masculine Easter card, so I went with mostly green and yellow, and green dots for my bling. My "A" (Anything of your choice) for this challenge is the sentiment.
