Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Day at Catch the Bug! I'm using Ruby Christmas-Poinsettia today and went with one of my favorite color combos.

Ruby is colored with pencils and accented with glitter. I used one of my "stand by" layouts and added a bit of interest with dry embossing and ribbon. Here's a close-up:

I've used the image Make it Snappy-Birthday Ewe and colored her with pencils. I absolutely love how cheeky she is! LOL For embellishing I've added my signature heart. Here's a close-up:

Freebie Friday

Good's Freebie Friday at Catch the Bug!  Today I'm working with the adorable Turtles Fall image, who is perfect for your Fall cards; you can snag him here.

I've colored him with pencils and used the sketch from Sunday Stamps. It was the perfect sketch to showcase the patterned papers. No embellishing needed, except for the die cut heart. Here's a close-up:
