Love You

3/1/20 Top 3 at Craft-Dee BowZ!

Hi friends! Happy Thursday – hope you’re having a great week! I’m super stoked to share that I’m guesting for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge this month and we’re being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps – you know you love some Bugaboo! The Twisted Thursday challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist, so be sure to join The Outlawz for a whole lot of fun going on all the time – there are nine different challenges you can play in and tons of crafty friendships to be made! Today’s challenge is being hosted by Berni and the twist is ‘Be My Valentine.’ If you play the twist, you’ll need to CASE a card from any Outlawz designer on any team, chosen from either their Outlawz gallery or their blog, and share a link to the card you CASE’d so we can see how it inspired you!

I stalked Angela’s blog (she’s the Twisted Thursday Challenge Team Leader) and CASE’d the card in her blog post Anything Goes with Creative Scoop Digis from January 25, 2018. The black, white and red color combo has always been one of my favorites, and I love her pretty card design with the stripes and the doily. This is Angela’s card:

I created a Valentine for my hubby in the black, white and red color combo featuring the adorable Bugaboo Heart Cats digital image that I had in my stash. Ed and I are crazy cat people (we have nine feline fur babies) so this image was perfect. And I always love an image that I don’t have to color, lol!


I used two coordinating patterned papers for the background that I layered on red. I die cut a red doily to layer beneath the focal image which I layered on black. I created the front sentiment on the computer, cut it into a strip, layered it on red cardstock and then cut it into a flag. I added a red gingham bow to the girl kitty, some red Gumdrops and tiny white flat-back pearls around the doily.


I created the inside sentiment on the computer also and cut the cardstock into a panel which I embellished with leftover papers used on the front and layered on red.


And one more peek… I’m really loving how this turned out and I know Ed is going to love it tomorrow! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
