Bugaboo Stamps: A Kid's View Christmas | Caroling

Is it hot in here?!?!? 
Hell yeah, it's hot in here!!! 

An acquaintance of mine sent me a "You know you're from Texas. . ." e-mail recently. The funniest item on the list was ". . .when you can list the seasons": Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas. Since it's going to be 101 degrees today and 103 degrees in Sunday, I thought that a little Christmas was in order. . . ;)

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, SEI card stock, SEI designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, American Crafts ribbon, ??? embellishments, Mercy Kerin sketch.

Challenge: Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC #87.

Bugaboo Stamps: Hoppy Occasions | Birthday

Contrary to popular belief, the Bugaboo Stamps DT does not get to preview all of the images in a set before Jodie releases it. Consequently, New Release Tuesday and Freebie Friday are sooo freakin' exciting because the set is as new to us as it is to you. As I type this, I'm simply hopping (pun definitely intended) up and down to see the rest of the images in the Hoppy Occasions set!

So, why don't you hippity-skippity-hop-hop-hop your way over to Bugaboo Stamps' with me for this week's Freebie Friday. And as a chaser, follow me to to our challenge blog, Catch the Bug, to see what the DT has created with the one image that we did get to preview. . .;)

PS. I've been a bit remiss in keeping you up-to-date with the challenges that Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring, so please let me rectify that now. We're sponsoring Cookin' Up Creations and Freshly Brewed Challenges and  for the entire month of August 2010.

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, Bazzill card stock, Stampin' Up! card stock, PaperTrey Ink card stock, Imagination Project/Gin-X designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, Sakura Glaze pen, Dress It Up embellishments, Mark Richards embellishments, Taylor Van Bruggen sketch.

Challenge: Taylored Expressions TESC #124.

Bugaboo Stamps: Summer Dog | Pool

Is there anything more satisfying than having the pool to yourself? Especially when it's 101 degrees in Austin, TX? I don't think so! Weeeeell. . .maybe New Release Tuesday on Bugaboo Stamps's challenge blog, Catch the Bug! :D

PS. I've been trying to get Lance to install an in-ground pool complete with pool boy in our postage stamp-sized backyard, but so far he's been resistant to the idea. He opens with, "We live on a lake!" And I counter with, "HELLO?!?!? There's no such thing as a lake boy!"

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, PaperTrey Ink card stock, Stampin' Up! card stock, Pebbles designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, Stampin' Up! ribbon, Basic Grey embellishments, Jen del Muro sketch.

The Crafty Hos: Sketch Challenge

Buenas dias from what passes for a beach in Texas! Y'all know I love my home state almost as much as I love Jesus, but The Emerald Coast this isn't. I suppose it makes a strange kind of sense to post such a mediocre card from such a mediocre shore but REALLY, shame on me because The Crafty HosBugaboo Stamps, and most especially y'all deserve better. . .:(

PS. Perhaps I need to turn to the sea for a playful Poseidon, a naughty Neptune, or a tumescent Triton to help me rediscover my mermaid mojo. . .;)

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, PaperTrey Ink card stock, The Paper Company card stock, BoBunny designer paper, Copic markers, KI Memories ribbon, Mark Richards embellishments.
