Flying By

Happy Friday!

This is the new dollar digi available to you this week at Stretch N Bubbles.
I just love this image.  It's hard to find a cute boy/masculine image and this one is just perfect for all kinds of occasions.  Just change the sentiment and it would be great for birthday, congratulations, get well, etc.

Go on over to SNB and grab this adorable image while it is still only $1.00!!

Have a great weekend!

Hi All,

Back to Halloween!  LOL!  Here is Stretch N Bubbles' latest dollar digi.  Isn't he adorable? 
His name is Gumble.

I paper-pieced Gumble.  It's hard to see, but I put a nice thick coat of Glossy Accents on his eyes and tusks.  It's very shiny in person! 
The letters are Gliiter Foam from Thickers.

Remember Alison only keeps these dollar digis up for one week.  So if you want Gumble, hop over to SNB and grab him while you can. 

I've also submitted my card to:
Creative Card Crew - Spooky Fun
Paper Take Weekly - Spooky Hues
Divas By Design - Something Spooky

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Treats

Happy Friday Everyone,

We have another dollar digi available for you up at Stretch N Bubbles.  This cute little guy, appropriately  named Ghost, is up this week only for one dollar.

I am continuing to make little Halloween gifties for some friends at work.  This is a pillow box cut from Cricut's Something to Celebrate cart.  There is a nice, big opening on top of the box, which I covered with acetate.  I love when you can see the candy inside!
I colored Ghost with copics.  I used Nestabilities Lacey Circles to mount the image on.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I hope you will go over and grab this cute little guy while he's still only $1.00.

I've entered this in the following challenges.
Paper Pretties - Halloween
Stamp Insanity - Anything but a card
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything goes
Whimsical Wednesday - No Tricks Just Treats

Thanks for stopping by.

Pink Cat Studios
Winner’s Choice of 5 Digis


In keeping with the theme of "Scraps", I made this card entirely out of scraps of paper in my stash.  The image is a digi from Pink Cat Studios named Squirt. Isn't he adorable?

I printed him several times on different patterned papers.  Then I paper pieced the image including the branch and leaves.  The background is woven strips of paper.  It was fun to make the background...reminded me so much of the pot holders I used to make as a kid in camp... way, way back in the day.  LOL

I hope you will go over to DYSU and check out the team's projects.  Then use up your scraps!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi All,

Here is this week's dollar digi at Stretch N Bubbles  I just love this guy!  He is named Thanks Squared .
Alison has him up for only $1 this week.

I used a sand art bottle to hold these yummy candy corn....a holiday fav. 
The bottle stands 7 1/2".  It sells at AC Moore for $1.19.  These bottles are great as place settings on holidays, teacher gifties, etc. and looks awesome with M&M's, jelly beans and  lots of different types of goodies. 

I colored the image with copics.  The sentiment is one of those dollar stamps from Gina K Studios that can be found in AC Moore or Michaels.

Remember this guy is available for $1 for this week only.  Go on over and grab him before he's gone.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Puppy Face

Hi Everyone,

There is a new  a new challenge up at Do You Stack Up?! 
In many areas, the weather is starting to turn a little chilly and the leaves are changing. The scent of autumn is in the air and with this wonderful season upon us we begin to think of the colors of the season. This week, while you don't necessarily need to make an autumn themed project, we would like to see you use the color Brown.

This week's Sponsors:

Copic Marker Scrapbooking
 6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America), Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

Crafty Emma
£10 Gift Voucher

Delicious Doodles Winner’s Choice of 4 Digis


How cute is this little beauty?!  His name is Mortimer (Morty) and belongs to my son and daughter-in-love.  He is my Grand Dog!  I am making a scrapbook for my kids of their life with Morty...That's right, I am not yet a grandmother...NO PRESSURE!!  

Anyway, we love Morty and when this week's DT assignment was to use brown as the predominant color, I new I could make a page for their album.  This paper is from DCWV.
Go on over and check out the Browns from my talented DT sisters att DYSU.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
