Bugaboo is having a DT Call and you are invited!

Bugaboo Stamps  is looking to add new design team members to their current team!  We need your help and enthusiasm promoting our products through your personal blog and online galleries.  We are looking for team members who are excited about creating, and would love being a part of a fun and friendly design environment.

So if you think you can handle the above challenge head on over to the blog and get all the details we are very excited to see what you can bring to the table! 

Week 2 at Crafty’s Challenge Blog

That’s right we made it through our first challenge and we got some great cards entered for the challenge.  This week we switch gears a little.  We want you to show us what you do with a single layer card, that's right we have been matting and layering forever now we want a single layer card with buttons and ribbon.  Does not sound to hard but it is not as easy as it sounds.   Here is my card for the challenge.



I used a great freebie from Mo’s digital Pencil and  the sentiment is from, they have lots of free sentiments that are so so cute you should check them out.  The ribbon is just a simple hobby lobby little spool and the buttons are PTI.  Thanks for checking out my card, I hope you enjoy,

Into our Lives a little rain must fall!

So true, so  true!   I did this project for SMC for their sketch challenge this week.   I love the duck in the umbrella it is Duncan one of the newer characters at SMC’s I love him he was introduced as part of the January release!  I thought I would send this to my Daughter who is away at college who happens to adore ducks.  I thought this would make her smile and remind her that she can handle anything that comes her way.


I used paper from my stash and generated the sentiment from my computer.

I'm part of this new group called the Special 50-50 Stamping Group. The idea is that the group will be made up of 50 digital stamp designers and 50 card-makers. Every month the designers post an image for the card-makers to use. You can choose to take any of the images you want and create with them. You post your creation and the other members vote on which they like the best. This is my first creation for the group. I used this ADORABLE image from
