Freebie Friday



Good morning! It's Freebie Friday at Catch the Bug and this sassy Ruby image is up for grabs! I don't know about you, but I think she's got it going on!  LOL

I've colored Ruby with pencils to coordinate with the patterned paper, and the sketch is from Try Stampin' On Tuesday (I did flip the elements to better suit the image). I like how this one turned out; I can think of a few friends that this would be appropriate for too! Here's a close-up:

Stella Says Sketch #711



Good morning! It's Sunday so we have a fun sketch to share with you. As a reminder, beginning in May through August, we will have only 1 Stella Sketch each month due to the summer season. Are you ready? Here it is:


It's a great one, right? I do love a good sketch! I used one of Jodie's adorable chicks today; she's colored with pencils and accented with a touch of glitter. I was unsure at first how the patterned paper would look because of the larger scale, but I think the colors are subtle enough that it works. I do love the pretty pastels! I have embellished simply with 3 enamel dots. I realized as I was uploading that I forgot my signature heart! I even layed the die out on my work space. I must be getting old! Here's a close-up:


Image: Bugaboo Digital Image

Oldie But Goodie



Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Day at Catch the Bug. This adorable little chick just says "Spring" to me, which I am really looking forward to after our snow this past weekend. Yes, I said snow...LOL! 

I've colored her with pencils and accented the flower and heart with a touch of glitter. I've used this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch, although I did leave off the accent on the left side, I just couldn't make it work. I've embellished simply with pink enamel dots. Here's a close-up:

ABC



Good morning friends; it's ABC Monday at Catch the Bug! Graduation is just around the corner, so I have some gift packaging for my "Anything But a Card" project today. I purchase these handy gable boxes at Hobby Lobby when they are 50% off; they're nice to have on hand and easy to decorate. They give your gift a little extra oomph!

I've colored the image with pencils, layered it with a die cut and popped it up with foam tape over a simple band. I've added a touch of glitter to the stars and diploma and a die cut glittery star and heart for embellishing. Here's a close-up:
