Earlier this month I won a challenge at Bugaboo stamps and have been having such fun creating with their amazing images. This posting happens to high light four card in which I feature several of my wins!
The first is a sweet image that I just had to use for two challenges that recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The image is named "Lil Kidz Support Ribbon." Isn't she adorable?! And, the card allowed me to use more of my pearly pink vellum stash. Love it's subtle beauty.

Once again, am using one of the images from Bugaboo Stamp's Mini-Monster Blocks to enter into several challenges. I turned one of the monsters (I think it is Frankenstein) into a Vampire by cutting the bolts off of the image, and turning his spiked hair into a slicked back 'do' by filling in the spaces with black and gray markers, and adding a few white gel pen highlights. Used a sparkly silver gel pen to sketch in the blinking stars and added a bit of bling to qualify for the Bugaboo Bingo challenge. My card meets the requirements of the bottom left diagonal: three layers, players choice (bugaboo image), and gem (sparkly stars and glowing bat eyes.) Am also entering this into two CAS challenges. One is called "Inspired by a Film." This card represents the popular "Twilight" series. The other features Monsters. So this is a perfect fit! Am putting together packages of assorted cards for gifts this Christmas and was short on Valentine's cards. So… I hand-lettered a sentiment on the front and inside of the card.

Another adorable Bugaboo image, this one is named "Autumn Squirrel" and the card went together so quickly using odds and ends of things that were littering my craft table. (Right now, after spending many relaxing evenings there it is mounded with treasures!) Am entering it into a few other challenges, including the Give Thanks Mood Board at SumMoreFun.com (which used to be named Victorines. They just expanded their stamp line, adding many, many new images from a number of companies. Check them out!)

My final Bugaboo image I'll share in this posting is appropriately named "Elf Peeker." The sentiments were printed off from the digi set "Gnomes in My Garden" from Beccy's Place. One challenge in which I am entering it has the theme Vintage/Distressing.
So, I distressed the "wood door" with my ScorPal, plus used a scrap of wallpaper from a book that I rescued from my mom's craft stash after she passed away 6 years ago. Can't imagine how old it is… but since I inherited my packratism from my mom… I'm pretty sure it could be considered vintage. And Mom would have LOVED this card!
