Bee mine?

I just love the Mo Manning image, Bee Mine and I used it when I made this center step card.  I put Sakura jelly glitter pen on the bee wings and flight pattern and the girl's skirt ruffle and wings.

Birthday dog gift bag

Today is day 3 of the Bugaboo 8th Birthday Bash and today the challenge is to make something that is not a card that you would use for a birthday party.  If you follow me, you know about Gus, my daughter's Teddy Bear pup, which will have a birthday coming up so this is a gift bag for him.  He is sooooo spoiled. When I went to pick up some items to give him for Christmas, the lady at the store, asked me how many dogs I had, hehehe...only one very spoiled grandpup with a wardrobe larger than some men I know, no lie.
For my bag, I used one of the images from the Birthday Puppies Set.  I didn't add additional items on the bag because I was afraid Gus would chew them off.

Time for a Birthday SUGAR HIGH!

Today is a Friday Freebie at Catch the Bug and this Birthday Penguin Cupcake is the perfect one to get us started for tomorrow will be the 8th Birthday Bash.  On my card, the sentiment is from TLC, Create. I have been diabetic since the age 11 so eating a cupcake that large would REALLY cause a high blood sugar to say the least, hehe.  For my card, I used Glossy Accents on the balloons. My border punch from Martha Stewart has butterflies that lift up.  The Birthday Bash will be Cupcakes, birds and butterflies so pull out all of your supplies.

I have an Aunt that has her birthday on Valentine's Day and she is a mail carrier.  So I found that I had this pre-colored image in my stash Kaboodle Bug Designs that I got as a freebie YEARS ago.  I layered it and stamped the sentiment on it from My Favorite Things.
