Bugaboo September Bingo Challenge!

Hello, it's time for our weekly challenge and this week it's Bingo! I used the top line of the bingo board, tag, pearls and a school image.
This is Grad Bear from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured him with markers and then went back over the brown with a blender copic just making dots. I was going for a textured look! 

The card base is black, with a layer of designer paper from Recollections. I made the tag with the tag topper punch from SU then added ribbon and popped it up. I finished it off with some pearls!

The card base is gumball green with designer paper from Echo Park holly jolly Christmas. The sentiment is computer generated and I used a die to make the little ornament that I also embossed with a star embossing folder and The edges are sponged.

SSS413, Autumn Girlz!

Hello, can you believe it's Labour Day Weekend! It brings an end to this crazy hot summer we've been having, hopefully less humidity and of course school, fall and on a happy note we will be back to having our bi-weekly sketch challenge at Catch The Bug! This is for Stella Says Sketch SSS413!
I used one of the newer images called Autumn Girlz from Bugaboo Stamps, I love her with all her animal friends! I coloured the image with copics and cut it with c circle die and matted on old olive scallop circle.

The card base is sahara sand, with a strip of designer paper from My Minds Eye dolled up and it's backed with tempting turquoise. 

The background was stamped with a stamp from SU Kinda Eclectic in crumb cake ink. I popped the main image up and made a flower with a marvy punch and added brown stickles to the center.

For my card today I used one the the newer images from Bugaboo Stamps called Crabby Dog...I love his expression!
