Bugaboo Fairy

Hello!! Hope your week is going well. I'm so looking forward to our son getting transferred from Ft. Irwin (Army) in California to Ft. Jackson here in Columbia, South Carolina in a few weeks! Woo-Hoo! Won't be long now, and I'll get to see him often!!

Recently I won a challenge over at Love To Create Challenges. THANK YOU! 

(You can see all the challenges I win or make Top 3 on my Page Tab called AWARDS or CLICK HERE.)

I was lucky enough to win some BUGABOO images. I love me some BUGABOO! I couldn't wait to start coloring, and the card I want to show you today is the first I've been able to color so far this week.

First I colored the image with BIC markers. (I got these last year and love coloring with them!) Then I used a Stampin' Up template to mask over part of the image paper so I could chalk the background. (I got this template in the 90's. Gee whiz... that's OLD!)

Here's what I got after chalking....

  • A2 size card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Stampin' Up cardbase (Kraft)
  • BUGABOO image
    • Colored with BIC markers
    • Background chalked
    • White gel pen used for hair accents
  • Ribbon from Joann's
  • Button from TSQ's Royal Castle Shoppe on Facebook (Shop TSQ here)
  • Pattern paper from Recollections 180 stack "Bright and Basic"
    • "Simply Said" stamp set inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
    • If you can only buy 1 stamp set, this is a good one! There's about 22 different sentiments on there ranging from encouragement, just because, etc.
    • Shop CTVS here
  • Image, sentiment, and pattern paper all inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis

  11. Hi Janis - Cool Cool! I just LOVE Bugaboo Stamps - yep, love them! Your cute Bugaboo fairy is so adorable - great job on your creation! I will have to add this digital to my list - I do not have this one in my collection - YET! Thanks for your display of your lovely marker and chalked card and congratulation on your wins TOO! I hope you were doing the Happy Dance! I am excited for you and your family that your son is moving closer to you as well- thank him for me for providing me FREEDOM in the USA - I pray our military are safe and I feel there should be NO CUT backs on their pay - etc. They pay a HIGH PRICE with their life for our FREEDOM! I am grateful for all military that lay it on the line so I can remain FREE! God Bless you and your family! Enjoy your week girlfriend
