Busy busy

Okay everyone you'll have to bare with me on this long post. I haven't had any card mojo in days and days. But this morning, BAM, it hit big time. So I'm going to post all in one! Deep Breath!!! Here we go....
First just a cute picture of my neighbors dog, "Baby Girl"...she was my inspiration for my Bugaboo card..

 Is she not the cutest thing you have ever seen?  She is eating my cats food and growled a ferocious growl for such a tiny little girl when I went to pick her up! LOL I have told my neighbors if they ever give her up, she's is to come here!!

And now for the card in her honor;

 This will be entered in their Catch the Bug Challenge. It's a Z fold card. I just love those cards. I did make a separate blank 4.25x5.5 for the recipient to write a message on.
Love this image...I have several colored and ready to be put together.

The opened view;
Now to switch gears for this card. It is for the D2D progressive challenge. This weeks image is Garden Party. How fun is this image. I love flowers, as I think I said last time I blogged!

 I just had to bling up the flowers. At first I had only 3 with rhinestones in the centers. Then I thought the bottom left corner needed something, so out came the buttons....well one thing led to another and all the flowers are blinged out! OH how I can NOT stop once I start! I had just a hint of  stickles to the bee wings.  Thanks Faith for another beautiful image.

And lastly, I promise!

This is a free image over at IASC, it comes in a colored version or black and white version. Very cute image. Thanks Amanda!  I'm quite happy with my bunny. Usually when I color (or don't color) something white, I try to over compensate....this time it turned out just as I wished.

OH no, I lied. So Sorry...I forgot my Hambo card I made. I must post it also. :)

This weeks challenge was to make an easel card. I also love easel cards. I made this for my daughter and son n law...they are in Alaska and how appropriate that I should get a Penguin Bunny image to play with for Easter. You never know, perhaps way up there in the snow (they just got an additional 7") the easter bunny may look like this! LOL

Thanks for sticking with me on this long, long post!
Happy Crafting,
Shirley G
