Happy 'Bird"day Chickie!



Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie day at Catch the Bug...I love going through all my images to pick one! I went with one of the chickz, I guess you could say I have a thing for chicks, chickens, and birds!

She's colored with pencils and accented with glitter. Oh no, I am realizing right now that I didn't give her any "glittery eyeshadow"...will have to fix that! LOL The sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

Bugaboo New Release Tuesday



Good morning...it's New Release day at Bugaboo! Really hoping those April showers will bring May flowers, or in our case May snow! Ugh!

I've colored the image with pencils and paired it with some bright and cheery Doodlebug papers. The paper was too pretty to cover up so I added a piece of vellum for one of the layers on the sketch...I really like that trick...it adds a bit of interest too. I've added a sun and some clouds for embellishing. Here's a close-up:

FTHS May Blog Hop



Good morning! It's time for the May From the Heart Stamps Blog Hop...our theme this month is "CASE It". Each team member will be showcasing a card CASE-d (copy and share everything) from another teammate.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the image of their choice from the FTHS Store. We are also having a link-up contest with this hop. We invite you to pick one of the FTHS DT members and "CASE" one of their cards and add it to the linky collection by Sunday, May 7th. Everyone who enters will be entered into a random drawing; one lucky winner will receive 3 images of choice from the store!

If you have arrived from From the Heart Stamps, you are in the right place; if not, why don't you start there so you don't miss anything?

Today I am CASE-ING my teamie Brenda. Let me tell you, I really had fun going through her blog roll to find a card! I found out that Brenda crafts a lot of cards (I have no idea how she is so productive!) and I had a hard time choosing! I went way back to October 21, 2015...check out her post here.

I went with the same image, "Hamlet PigWit Pig Out", pastel colors, and layout. I've colored Hamlet with pencils and dotted his eyes with a black gel pen. Patterned papers are from Echo Park.
