OBG, Sick Girl!

 Hello, it's time to showcase the wonderful Oldies But Goodies from Bugaboo Stamps, and today I'm using Sick Girl!
I coloured the image with copics, using colours that went with the designer paper from Recollections. The card base is white, with a layer of dp & then a paper doily. I finished it off with ribbon and a tiny tag!
The best part is the inside that has a little pop up tissue box, doesn't it go perfectly with this image!

Make sure to stop by the Catch The Bug Blog for more Oldies But Goodies.

ABC, 2 Litre Bottle Savings Challenge!

 Hello, this may be old news to some, but I recently came across a 2 Litre bottle savings challenge. I've seen a couple different totals, but the idea is if you save your dimes in a 2 litre bottle you should end up with somewhere between $500 - $800 when full! Isn't that a great way to save for a vacation!

So I decorated an empty 2 litre bottle (still a bit wet inside)! lol I used the Stella Vacation from Bugaboo Stamps and I cut the sentiment in half and only used the top part! I coloured the image with copics.

The paper band is from DCWV summer stack, and I used it as a guide to picking my colours. Super easy project! This would even be great for the kids to do, pick something they want to save for, choose an image from Bugaboo Stamps that reflects the end goal and decorate away!

Stop by the Catch The Bug Blog for more ideas!

Have a Great Day!
