Fun in the Sun!

Hi everyone.  I have some good news to share with you.  I have been asked to be a guest designer for Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge Blog for September and October! :)  I'm thrilled to be a part of their team ... I just love the fun images designed by the owner, Jodie.  Isn't this Beach Frog the cutest ... he makes me smile! :)

Today is my first Design Team card for Bugaboo ... and it's the Friday Freebie that's available at Bugaboo Digi Stamps FOR FREE right now.  Drop by and check it out ... but don't wait too long as this image will only be available free for the next week.

Then, next Friday, there will be a new free image ... how great is that??!!

I will also be making Design Team cards for some upcoming challenges at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  I hope you'll join us for some fun and prizes!


I kept my usual CAS style for this image ... I colored it with Copics, fussy-cut and popped it up on my card base.  I used a ripped piece of card stock for the sand, adding Stickles along the top edge for shine.  I used a piece of orange felt for his beach towel and also some orange twine for the handle of his pail.

Here's a close-up:

Stamps:  Beach Frog - Beach Toys (Bugaboo); Beach Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs), Crumb Cake (SU!)
Ink:  Copics:  G43, G99, R29, R59, Y21, YR07, RV00, R20, B16, B99, 0 (colorless blender)
Accessories & Tools:  Orange felt, Mandarin twine (The Twinery), clear Stickles, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

I hope I have inspired you to check out the images at Bugaboo - you'll be glad you did!

This is fabulous Loll! Congratulations on your Guest DT spot with Bugaboo! I love how you created this CAS card! That fussy cutting could not have been easy!

Fabulous use of this image, and congratulations on being on Bugaboo's DT. My first foray into digi land has been with a few of B's images. This one is adorable, and I loved all the extra little touches you added (felt & twine) to make this uniquely your own. Great idea on the sand effect too. TFS & I hopped out to get the FF, which I usually forget about! Hugs
