Bugaboo Stamps & Catch the Bug: 08/14/2010

I love learning. I love school. Call me a geek, but despite the fact that my parents kept my sister and I busy all summer long with camps & classes, I simply couldn't wait for August and school to start. And now that I'm an adult, I'm waiting for the day that my husband Lance makes enough money so I can not only be a kept woman, but a professional student as well. . .;)

Make a back-to-school project and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by 07/31/2010 at 7:00 AM EST to be entered in a random drawing for three digi prize packs - seven, four, or two digital images!

PS. Every now and then the designer paper does all the work for you. . . ;)

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, PaperTrey Ink card stock, The Paper Company card stock, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, Creative Imaginations designer paper, ??? ribbon, Making Memories embellishments, ??? embellishments.

Bugaboo Stamps: Sunbonnet Christmas | Ornaments


On my best day I can't make an ABC that's even 2.67% as good as one made by Angie, Cammy or Paul on their worst  day. But, if I want to continue being on the Bugaboo Stamps DT (which I do, of course) I have to make one for ABC Monday on our challenge blog, Catch the Bug, once per term. . .;)

OOPS. . .I forgot to mention that the box is filled with a package of hot chocolate, a candy cane, and an individually wrapped piece of Ghiradelli chocolate.

PS. The ribbon is brown, the pearl embellishments are red, and the "stitching" on the snowflake is red. My camera apparently dislikes "twilight" as much as I do. . .;)

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, Stampin' Up! card stock, Stampin' Up! designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, Stampin' Up ribbon, Martha Stewart embellishments, Mark Richards embellishments, Stampin' Up! sentiment, PaperTrey Ink clear box.

The Crafty Hos: Primary Colors Challenge

My favorite female cousin Maria Angelica Garza Olivarez de Bazan y Sanchez passed away peacefully Tuesday night after a lengthy illness. She would have been 61 years old in September. Vaya con los angelitos y que Dios te bendiga, mi prima.

Wondering why I'm posting that here? Because Jita (which is a Spanish endearment) was a HO! A seriously spoiled, petulant, plush, pink peignoir-wearing, telenovela-watching, bon-bon eating kept woman. My mama would always say, "You're gonna end up like Jita!" And I'd retort, "I hope so!"

I hope God has maribou and Univision in Heaven. . .;)

But on to my card using primary colors. . .

Supplies: A Muse Art Stamps image, PaperTrey Ink card stock, Stampin' Up! card stock, The Paper Company cardstock, MAMBI designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? embellishments, ??? embellishments A Muse Art Stamps sentiment.
