Guest Designing at JUGS!

Hi Everyone,

I have the honor to be guest designing at JUGS this whole month!
What FUN! 
And the topics are perfectly to my liking :)
The first week is WORD week:


Now if I see a bird stamp I have to have it.....
Showcasing my new addition to my aviary from Katzelkraft, freshly flown in directly from France!

The sentiment is by Dylusions. The background I made with an iStencil - I love that one, so cool!


 Used watercolors for the bird and distress inks for the stencil.

So how about you all join in? Now that would be a lost of FUN!

Happy Stamping!

I love your bird, Cornelia. I can't decide if he's angry or just scared to fly. ;) The stencil is something I've never seen before but it really made a great background for him. I'm so glad you've joined us at JUGS this month. It will be great to see what else you create.

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car
