Bugaboo Stamps "Oldie But a Goodie"

Well I decided to go through my many images from Bugaboo that I have bought over the years, even before Jodie reworked her online shop, I was hooked.  I thought which image did I buy, thinking I would use that one a lot, but of course, after I buy, that idea goes to the back of my mind and another image and idea takes over. I bet you can relate to that too!  I looked at the shop, looked at the sections and chose Word Search.  I am sure I have one of these!  Back to my Bugaboo file on my computer ... well what do you know, I have all 3 in the shop ... not surprised.

I decided to work with

Word Search - Brat Birthday Girl

A simple card, but oh, what fun for a little girl to try her hand at Word Search!

I hope you will check out our Oldie but Goodie inspiration each Thursday and go through your stash... I am sure you will find an Oldie but Goodie!

See you next time, you never know when I will pop up again on Catch Challenge Blog with some inspiration.

Bugaboo Stamps - Anything but a Card Monday Inspiration

Hey there,

When I saw this image appear in the shop, "Stella Me and My Cat Talk" I just knew I had to add it to my personal ATC Collection.  In case you are new to my blog, I must tell you I love cat images and seeing I talk to my cat Emmie about EVERYTHING, I thought the caption on this image was purr-fect.

This is Emmie when she was little, sitting on a lounge chair used for my bear collection.

And her is my ATC

I love Stella too:  purr-fect combination of two things I love!

I hope you catch our Anything But a Card posts for inspiration over at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog every Monday. and if you love this image as much as I do, here it is.

Also remember to show us your Anything but a Card projects on our Bugaboo Stamps Fan Group.  Hope to see you there, if you aren't a member, please join us now.

See you soon,

Gail xx

Bugaboo Stamps - Monday 2nd March 2020

Can you guess what today's inspiration over at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog?

Anything But a Card!

My inspiration for today is a Bookmark.  I have used Floral Set 2, and with this set you also get the same image in a circle shape. Hope you like it, I am practising with pencils at the moment and I coloured this with Crayola Signature Blend & Shade Coloured Pencils and when it was finished I sprayed it with J. Burrows Workable Fixative Spray to protect the pencil work.  

I hope I have given you some inspiration to use your Bugaboo stamps for Anything but a card lol.
See you over at Anything but a Card inspiration again soon.

SheepSki Designs March Blog Challenge #36

This month's SheepSki Designs Blog Challenge has the theme "Die Cuts and/or Punches".

It didn't matter what the theme was for March, I was going to use one of Andrea's Gnome images.  I am loving every gnome image added to the shop and I hope Andrea has more to entice us with.

When I saw the theme, I thought ok, it's about time I put some of many Stampin' Up items to use. I have used the Daisy Lane set and both sizes of Daisy punches.  I punched the stamped daisies on coloured cardstock and punched them out.  I used a side stepper template to create the card base.

I hope you like my little gnome garden scene using Giant Daisies

Don't forget if you can't resist those gnome images don't forget to use the special code for my followers over at the Etsy shop for any SheepSki Designs digital stamps:


Hope to see your entry over in the blog challenge for March.  Get out those dies and/or Punches and have a go!

Bye for now

SheepSki Designs Freebie

Hi Followers,

Today you will find a SheepSki Designs Freebie Giveaway from Andrea over at Kit and Clowder Facebook Group and hopefully it will be available for a few days more. 

Here is my inspiration:

I wanted to do something different with Jo's Daffodils, so I googled and came up with this - a free Daffodil Day Popcorn Box Template, just perfect for what I wanted.  This container will come in very handy, no matter what I put in it, I am thinking great for when I pick coloured pencils or Copics for a project.

See you next time,
