Wednesday...FIFTH post...phew!

Wow! Where did the day go? I've been running around like a lunatic trying to get things done in time for my friends to arrive tommorrow! I'm so excited, but I squeezed in the one more card I said I was going to post today! Hope you like this cute card featuring the Bugaboo Stamps Wee Ones Easter Egg Peekers! See you tommorrow for Oldy but Goody Thursday!

This card was apropro for the following challenges: How Egg-citing Challenge Punch it Challenge pink&green (girly/soft) (pink/green) (pastels) (Hop along Bunny by DK Publishing) (Pastel Colors) (Easter) (DT) (Inspiration: soft, cuddly) (gathered eggs) (for someone special)

Wednesday...FOURTH POST!

This card is something different for me. I heard of One Stitch at a Time from CJ, who is a DT member for them. CJ also owns and designs for Cowboy Up Stamps! She told me of this Egg Hunt that they were doing, and being the curious sort, I spent quite some time hopping along trying to find the eggs! I managed to find them all, and completed the hunt, so next step was making this card:

This features Stitchy's Bunny Art Digi and follows the guidelines of the hunt. I'd tell you more, but then you'd know where the eggs were and what was in them! Of course, you'll want to go check out the hunt at OSAAT yourself! If so, you'd better hop to it!

This card was also combined to follow the following challenges: How Egg-citing Challenge Punch it Challenge pink&green (girly/soft) (pink/green) (pastels) (The Tale of Flopsey Bunnies by Beatrix Potter) (Pastel Colors) (Easter) (DT) (Inspiration: soft, cuddly) (gathered eggs) (for someone special) Egg Hunt

(40 challenges!)

ABaC Monday at Bugaboo Stamps!

I can't believe how fast the Easter holiday is approaching! So much to do and gosh, I am running out of time! My daughter is in preschool, and I love making favors for her class parties! So on top of the Easter baskets, cards, and altering projects I'm doing this week, I've been working up these simple favors for her classmates!

These are quick and easy to work up -which is a good thing, since I needed 28 of them! I finished 8 of them in about 15 minutes, so these are a perfect project for you busy parents, and teachers to make for the kids! These would also be a great little something to give out for scout troops, playgroups, or patients! Kinda useful to have on hand should you need a little 'something' for the 'grands' too! They can be done VERY economically too...I bought all of the stickers, easter toys, and pencils after Easter last year (or the year before!) at a fraction of their regular price. I also added whatever candy I found on sale this week. The bling, ribbon, and cardstock I found in the clearance bins at my local craft store over the last year or so. So grab yourself one of Bugaboo Stamps wonderful digi's, and you could have a whole bunch done in no time and for very little money too!!

This project is apropro for the following challenges:

1st place:  7 Digi's of your choice
2nd place: 4 Digi's of your choice
3rd place: 2 Digi's of your choice

to enter our XXtra special MISSION Hop-possible contest, you should have just come from RaeAnne's uber cool blog! To find out what the heck I'm talking'll want to go back to the Catch-the-Bug Blog and read all about what to do to win the XXtra special prize! 

In order to make you work for your clues to solve the puzzle of who my new DT member, you will have to find a clue to unlock HER name hidden somewhere in this post!  Here is some info about my secret new DT friend!

My incoming DT gal will be joining the team on April 1st, 2010! She is incredibly talented and can often be found in her well organized stamp space dressed in her favorite comfy loungepants and showing off a fresh pedi in her flip flops! She is funny, mod, and cool enough to know that the only way to drink a Dr. Pepper in style is to use a William Sonoma wineglass! (Cheers Ms. A!) <---that was a clue!

Like me, she couldn't go a day without her stamps, loves pink ribbon and likely inherited her craftiness from her mom! She also recently offered this excellent advice, "...choose products you would buy yourself.... your work won't be good if it doesn't fit your style". (Duly noted Ms. A!)  She has a simple, clean style that I adore, and a cool BLOG too! She is also not afraid that I will draw a mustache and devil horns on her picture - good call! Bugaboo is so lucky to have such a fun, & funky gal join the team! Welcome girlfriend!
Once you've finished gathering information here, head to Sandye's blog to see what she's up to. Good Luck finding information or clues there! 
Don't forget to visit all the blogs of the Bugaboo Stamps DT to see what they've done, and who they might introduce you to! Make sure you  jot down all of the incoming designers names by deciphering the clues on each blog! E-mail the complete list to, with the subject line 'New Bugaboo DT names'  to complete your mission and get a chance at the XXtra special prize!!!
