Birthday Bird…..

This time of the year I’ve a large number of birthday cards to make, so I thought that this cute image called “Bug Birthday – Bird 4” would be a great place to start.  This is also my card for the July “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.Com.

If you haven’t checked out the new and improved “Bugaboo” Digital Online Store, make sure you do.  She’s always got great sales going on and some of the nicest digital stamps around…and don’t forget to check out her Free Image each Friday.

I chose to color this image with my Copic Markers and also my Prisma Colored Pencils. The patterned papers were all from a new stack by Echo Park that I bought at a recent Convention. The stack is Called “Birthday Wishes.”

I cut my colored image with a Spellbinder’s Scalloped Circle Die, plus I used the Die-Namics “Bottle Cap Numbers” by My Favorite Things to cut out the date.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next time.  Good luck on the Challenge.

Graduation 2017….

It’s the 15th of the month and time for our May Bugaboo Crafty Challenge.  I picked this adorable “Ava Grad Diploma” image from the Bugaboo Digital Stamp Store.  It’s a most appropriate image for this time of the year, plus I wanted to make a card for a family member who is graduating from Kindergarten this year.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a White Gell Pen. I really dug through my old papers and came up with one that is from one of the very first Paper Books that I bought made by Paper Pizazz.  It has to be close to 30 years old! And speaking of “very old,” you can add these “School Days” Stickers by Francis Myer, Inc., to the list.

The Dies I used are the Bottle Cap Letters and Numbers by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.

I hope you can join us this month and share your creation with us….You could be the winner!  Also remember that the Bugaboo Store has been revamped recently and if you haven’t been there lately, you might have to set up a new sigh in.

Have a great month!
