Oldie but Goodie at Catch The Bug

It's Thursday and that means it's oldie but goodie day at Catch The Bug.  I am using A Little Sketchy -Nurse, I colored her with copics and used paper from DCWV.  I love these images- they make for easy clean and simple cards.

Meet Noah James


Hello friends, sorry I have been missing in action for a bit.  On July 30 we loaded the moving truck and on July 31 we flew cross country from SC to AZ to our new home.  Actually we are not in our home yet we have been in a hotel for the last 12 days and it is not a picnic but we are doing ok.  We are hoping to close on our new home by the 20th.  Yesterday at 2:11 am our newest grandson was born- Noah James weighed in at 8lbs 7 oz and was 22 inches long.  Just look at that sweet face with his momma our oldest (Elizabeth). 
Just look at that head of hair, no wonder she had heartburn for most of the pregnancy!  As far as crafty post they will get back to normal starting this Sat.  I stepped down from some of my Dt work since I knew it would be a few months of being unsettled but I am still part of the Bug-A-Boo team and will be posting projects on their behalf and sometime in the future I will hopefully be on one or two more teams.
Hugs,
Stephanie

Saying Good-bye for now...

Hello friends, I am sad to say that this is going to be my last post as a part of the From The Heart Stamps Design Team, we will be moving cross country from SC to AZ on July 31st and there is so much to do I was not sure if I could keep up with my responsibilities and thought best to step down for now and hope to be back on the team one day in the future.  I want to say a big THANK-YOU to Faith and the team who are so awesome to work with!  Now on to the new challenge you can do the sketch or the twist( your favorite technique), I have done the sketch.  This little guy was July's Stamp of The Month.   Everyone who plays along will receive a $1 voucher to the FTHS shop and one lucky person will receive a $5 voucher.   Check out the cute freebie in the store here..

Morning friends, it is time for a new challenge at From the heart stamps.  This weeks twist is to use a charm.  You can do the sketch, the twist or both.  Today I am using Birdie Balloon colored with copic markers and the paper is from The Paper Studios- I didn't have a charm that would work but I did have a little clip (good enough, right?).  Everyone who plays along will receive a $1 voucher to the FTHS shop and one lucky person will receive a $5 voucher.  You MUST use a FTHS image.
