May the COURSE Be With You

Well, Catch the Bug Challenge and Bugaboo Stamps is at it again!  This week it's.....Seasonal/Fall harvest theme!  Well, I made this card for my "clients".  Now, I'll admit - you can't send a Stella card to everyone! This Stella came with the sentiment "You call me witch like it's a bad thing".  I love that sentiment -- But I have plenty of client/friends that I can send them to!  I used the negative from a Spellbinders cut and used the Fiskars corner punch to adorn the corners with a piece of solid black behind - a cricut spider (isn't he too cute with those googly eyes) and a sentiment and BAM!  I love him!

Too fun, eh?  I told you and don't you love this old "gone fishing" image?  I decided to leave off a sentiment - that means I could use it for anything - I'm even thinking a sympathy card!  The serene scene is so soothing.  Well, back to the challenge - come join us at Crafty Creations Challenge blog and you could win some of Digi Doodle Shop's images!!  They are our very generous sponsor this Week!  So...don't wait - some show us your leaves!

Men play the Game....

Well, I've been on a roll this week!  I haven't been doing as many challenges but this week - I'm going through a bunch of printed images and trying to "make something" with them!

Ginger and Fred

This week at Catch the Bug - it's my fav!!  Anything Goes!  This is a card I made for one of my Design Team partners at Lollipop Crafts!  So...I thought I would share it!  I think the sentiment is too funny!  It became a little busy - you know those cards that you just can't stop adding "stuff"!  Well, this is that card!  I hope you enjoy because I'm happy with it!  The colors are much better in person - but that's the way the cookie crumbles!  So...take it away Ginger!
