Freebie Friday Flamingo...

Try saying that 3 times fast! lol Well you probably guessed this is this weeks Freebie at Bugaboo Stamps. This image is Flamingo-Sand 2, you can hope on over and get him free this week. If you like him, there's quite a few other Flamingos you might like too!

I coloured the image with copics and covered his goggles with crystal effects. The card base is bashful blue with a layer of paper from DCWV summer stack.

I sponged the daffodil delight inverted scalloped circle with matching ink. The pink piece was from my scrap bin and the green is from Recollections.

I also made this for this weeks Saturday Sketch #324

You can see more great samples using this weeks Freebie on the Catch The Bug Blog!

Have a Great Day!

Did You Know It's Family Fun Month!

 It`s Humor Me Wednesday at Catch The Bug, and today I showing you a card I made a card for `Family Fun Month`. I`m sure there`s lots of families out there that enjoy going to a baseball game together during the summer, whether it`s a professional game or your kids or Grand kids playing!

This card is also for my Nephew Jack who turns 10 this year. Jack is on a baseball team and his gift was baseball related, so this seemed perfect.

The images I used are AKV Baseball Number - 1, and AKV Baseball Number - 0 from Bugaboo Stamps. . This is also the first time I`ve combined two images. I looked on youtube to find a tutorial,  you really do learn something everyday!

I also printed the image onto copy paper, cut out the pieces and used them as a mask. I sponged the top with soft sky, and the bottom with wild wasabi. I printed two of the images onto white cardstock and cut  the 1 baseball out and popped it up.

The card base is real red, with a layer of designer paper from DCWV summer stack. The sentiment is from Stampin Up`s Party This Way set.

Have a Great Day!

This is What Phil Looks Like....

 on the front of his Birthday Card! Which doesn't make a lot of sense unless you know our Nephew Phil often (or daily) posts photos of himself on Facebook always with the title "this is what I look like" then whatever happens to be going on in the photo or background...like "this is what I look like on a random porch". It's his thing and I must say I've started to look forward to them because they're usually funny...I mean who takes a picture of themselves on a random porch!

So for Phil's 40th Birthday, his wife thru a surprise party for him and this is the card I made for him. We copied one of the selfies from his Facebook and my Hubby printed it off for me. I used the Stampin Up On Film die, and printed the sentiment on the computer.
I did up the inside too, the banner and stores were made with Die-namics dies.

Have a Great Day!

YNSFFC15, Down On The Farm!

Hello, I made this for this month's sketch challenge at Your Next Stamp.
And also for the Kards For Kids colour challenge, we're making farm themed cards this month.
I used The Funny Farm Crew set for my card today, and the Funny Farm Animal Sentiments set. 

I stamped the cow twice and coloured with copics. I cut out the nose and popped it up. 
All the papers are from Recollections, and the little chick was made with a Martha Stewart edge punch.

Have a Great Day!
