Stella Says Sketch @ The Bug Blog!

Happy Sunday & Happy Stella Says Sketch day!
There's a new sketch over at The Bug Blog and you have the next two weeks to play along!  
This weeks Stella Sketch had me working a bit outside my usual creative zone.  Sketch wise and color wise as I hardly EVER use the color yellow!!!

We had a new neighbor move in next door last week and to welcome her to the neighborhood, this sketch was the perfect, Housewarming card!

Today is day 6 of the Bugaboo Stamps 6th Birthday Celebration and it's a photo challenge.
Looking at this photo, I was inspired by the zebra print (big surprise with as much as the girlies in our house like animal print!)

Happy 6th Birthday to Bugaboo Stamps!!

Happy 6th Birthday Bugaboo Stamps!

I've been delinquent in posting Livy's first Birthday card - our little jelly bean turned 1 year old in September and my hubby and I still shake our head, even today.  It seems like just yesterday we brought our tiny little jelly bean home from the hospital.  Now, we have this sweet girl with quite a personality of her own.  She crawls, chatters, says a few words (that don't include anything that would make us blush in public - thank goodness), and she's enjoying more of her own independence since she started walking......

Wow, a year and almost a half has certainly FLOWN by!

Anyway, I digress.  Today is day One of the Bugaboo Stamps 6th Birthday Celebration and the first challenge in a week long celebration at The Bug Blog
My reason for digression - Livy's 1 year birthday card.

Today's Challenge -

I thought I'd try something different, as I've NEVER done a step card before.  Seemed like the perfect time to make a special card for her!

So, here it is - our little Sunshine's 1st Birthday card!

Papers - PTI Cardstock & miscellaneous digi papers
Tools - EK Success Border Punch
Extra STUFF - Dimensionals, Doodling, BLING & Stickles

Visit The Bug Blog and join the "It's a Jungle out There" birthday themed challenges for this week!  You'll certainly be inspired after visiting - I know I certainly was!

We hope you'll join us for a week of Birthday Celebrating, Bugaboo Stamps Style!

Hugs & Happy Days!

Anything But A Card @ The Bug Blog

Happy New Year!

Been a bit since I've been here between the Holidays, my father in law having knee replacement surgery, lots of traveling to see family, New Years, cleaning up after the holidays and going back to work after three weeks off/working from home, it's taking a bit to get into the 'swing' of things if you will in the new year.

I think we're STILL putting holiday china away in it's storage containers!  

Today is an Anything But a Card Monday, so I thought I'd share with you how perfectly a Bugaboo Stamps digi works outside of your standard card.

For Thanksgiving, we had a pot luck at work.  Everyone signed up, brought a dish - it was a pretty big pot luck (about 80 people participated)....The biggest I think I've been part of.

Well, we needed to make sure we didn't have 80 pies or 80 different green bean casseroles.

So, this super cute Autumn Owl, was a perfect fit for our Sign Up sheet!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by today - be sure to check back on Saturday - 
Hugs & Happy Days!
