Catch the bug 1-circle 3 brads

Saturday October 27, 2012
Catch the bug challenge  The theme this week is 1-circle and 3 brads..
Of course I had to use my favorite lady - Stella. I needed to get a good laugh and she hit the spot.  The sentiments she has (thanks to Jodie) are so funny, you never know what will come out of her mouth..

I hope you get a chance to play along and post to the above link.
 This is my card for the challenge. I was trying to keep it simple and Christmas card in mind. I always love simple but stunning Christmas cards to make and I think this one is a winner. I was really pleased how this came out.  I am still in recovery mode but doing better than a couple weeks ago, pain pills help : )

Challenge Saturday at Catch the bug
this weeks challenge is Bingo. See the photo below for the options.  I chose  starts with P, sentiment, and 3 or more papers.. (my sentiment is hard to see but it says "sweet pea"
If you did not see my posting below on Oct 18th, I had surgery on Oct.12 that was more involved than thought till the Dr. got in. So I am on bed rest, typing while I lay on my side which is not easy. My cards posted are ones I made few days prior to the surgery.

October 18, 2012 
I have been missing in action for a week now and I did not get these three cards loaded. Plans changed and I had no control over. I went in for surgery Friday the 12th and it was to be a day in and out surgery... Well surprise when out of surgery the DR. said we are keeping you for awhile. Once they got into the surgery it was more involved and so lots of cutting and stitching and LOTS of pain.. I was fine with that as the meds they gave in the hospital were more potent than the take home.. I did not get home till Wed the 17th in the afternoon.. I am trying to type while laying down and it's not comfortable. But I wanted to at least get these cards posted and I am not including all the sketch, or samples of images or photo. It's just to get these that I made well in advance posted. I will post only cards in the future that are already made as it will be awhile before I can even think of making more cards.
first card was for Saturday Oct 13, 2012 Catch the bug for a photo challenge..

Tag you're it..

October 12, 2012 
Catch the bug Free Friday .. flower pocket!!
I decided to make a tag which I love to do but am always afraid to do.. Well I love the way this came out. I printed off the digi freeby and I made it smaller than I realized and it just seemed so lost on a card so decided to make it into a tag and just go from there. I am in love with the way it came out and the additional embellishments I added . I thought if you need a sentiment it can always be added to the back side so I left it off as there just wasn't a place to add one and make it look OK. What do you think?. Like I've said before tags scare me but I may be over that fear now.  : )

Paper Pretties - Sentiment challenge

Monday October 8, 2012 
Paper Pretties  challenge Monday. This weeks challenge is sentiments..   There are three new sentiments over at Paper Pretties all an Irish Blessing. I love Irish blessings. 
 This is the sentiment I decided to use. It felt weird not using my copics but I love that I got to use flowers and leaves to embellish. I kind of kept with the fall theme of colors, but you could really use any colors for the sentiments.  I hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge.
