Goodmorning! Hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start?! Hubs has to work this weekend...so it's going to be a lazy crafty Saturday!
We went through a little SNOWmaggeddon here in Oregon the past couple of days which started on the first official day of Spring! We got about 10-12 inches of snow in total...enough to blanket our entire area and bring down trees on every block and sadly a few roofs too! The kiddos got 2 snow days out of it though and we had lots of fun playing in it...lol! Kinda funny to think Spring break is next week!!
Onto my card! We have a fabulous new sketch this week at Sketch Saturday making it Sketch #200!! WOW!! To celebrate this awesome milestone a couple of our DT girlies are participating in a DT swap with Bugaboo Stamps "Catch The Bug Challenge" and in turn we have a couple of their girls joining us this week! Be sure to catch all the info on the "Sketch Saturday" blog and show all the DT girls some love!
And of course our fabulous sponsor this week is "Bugaboo Stamps"!!
"Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug."
One lucky winner will get to choose 7 free digis to add to your Bugaboo collection! Big thanks to Jodie and everyone at Bugaboo!!
For my card I have used an adorable Easter themed Bugaboo digi called: Hoppy Occasions and can be found HERE! I masked the image and added some clouds to the background with Tim Holtz Distress ink and also surfaced him with a Copic shadowing technique. I also used some Stickles and some Glossy Accents for the eyes.
Here is a side view showing the cute purple cotton ball tassel ribbon at the bottom and the velvet blue ribbon I've had in my stash for awhile...
