Bugaboo Challenge Time!

Have you had a look around the Bugaboo Store? There are lots of adorable children and babies and lot of other images that are perfect for cards for kids. That's great because today's Catch the Bug Challenge is to make a card for a baby or a child. There aren't any babies in my life so I decided to make a card for a child using this adorable girl from the Wee Ones collection:
Head over to the Catch the Bug blog for more inspiration from the Bugaboo DT and to get your card loaded up and entered to win the prizes! If you need to stock up on your baby/child appropriate images, head over to the Bugaboo store and get shopping!

Oldie but Goodie Day

I know that I mostly show you the adorable kids and bears and other animals that Jodie creates at Bugaboo Stamps when it's Oldie but Goodie Day. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a cute kid or animal. Today, however, I decided to mix things up a bit and show you an image that I don't normally use. It's awesome, of course, because it's Bugaboo. And again, it's one of those images that you can use for so many different types of cards:
Head over to the Bugaboo Store to pick this one up for yourself and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's OBG creations today at the Catch the Bug Blog.

Bugaboo Challenge Time!

I hope you got a chance to play along in last week's Anything Goes challenge at Catch the Bug. Hopefully you did and you were one of the lucky winners. If not, don't despair, you have another chance this week. This week's challenge isn't as easy as "anything goes", but it's close. All you have to do to win prizes this week is USE SCALLOPS.
I used my Scalloped Circle Nesties and this adorable Itchy Dog image from Bugaboo:
Get out those Nesties or use your Cricut or punches. Just make something with scallops and enter your card over at the Catch the Bug Blog. What are you waiting for? :)

Cards for Haeli

Hey fellow crafters and cardmakers, I have a request for you. Would you be willing to make a card and send it to a girl who is battling a rare form of Ovarian cancer? She's a sixth grader in Ohio. I don't personally know her, but you can read about her story HERE It would be great if she could get tons of cards from all over the world to take her mind off of what she's going through, if only for a moment.
