Catching the Bug.... Card Makin Mama\'s with Bugaboo Digital Stamps

This week we are happily sponsored by Bugaboo and you get the chance of winning 7 of their images just by playing along in the Card Makin Mamas challenge this week. Our theme is all about Fall.. "Fall is here", now considering I'm from Australia and we just hit Spring.. this theme sort of entertains me.. it doesnt take much to make me giggle!

Please share your Fall creations over on the challenge blog, we look forward to seeing your creations!
I'm going to enter the YG/G challenge at Mad for Markers too.

Smash book beginnings

I saw my first smash book on Saturday and started my own today to keep a record of Copic colouring combos.

Christmas ideas - Kaszazz

I just love this workshop.  We made this up on the weekend in a very vibrant blue, but the stamp was just busting to be coloured in Vintage themed shades.  I used my distress markers for the colouring and of course on all the edging on the project.  You can't see it from this photo but under the lid of the box is a lovely lace border, one of my new favourites for die cutting.. its scalloped edged and polka dotted... just yummy.  My ribbon on this project was cream seam binding that I stained with Distress Stains (vintage photo I believe..or Walnut Stain, but any brown will work!)

Inspiration for Card Making Mama's... Make it Punny

I really struggled with our challenge for Card Makin Mama's this week, the other girls on the team nailed the challenge.  Have you seen their creations over on the Challenge blog, please pop over and say hi and enter your creations.  Make it Punny... play on words etc.

My card says Birthday Fishes, Hope your birthday goes swimmingly.   Quite an ordinary play on words compared to the rest of the team...    Help me out with your favourite Puns.. as I was absolutely clueless on the whole idea.  Surprise me!
