I could be your nurse one day!

Today starts a new Stella Says Sketch Challenge at Catch the Bug and for my card I used the image Nurse Margaret Be Nice to Me.  I added Glossy Accents to the eye glasses and gloves.  The truth is that I am a Registered Nurse for 28 years now so it is a true threat to who I send it to, lol.

Okay...I have to get caught up. I am a day behind so here is the Friday Freebie that is available at Catch the Bug called Roly Poly Chef Pie.  Recently I have made several images with cherry pie so I made this blueberry...my favorite, lol.

Screw Valentine's Day

So sorry this is a day late on posting, something happened on my auto post.  This was meant to go for the Humor Me at Catch the Bug and it did post on their site. This card is using the image Frame It - Stella Valentines Day.  And how appropriate with Stella to have some falling black hearts.
Seriously hope that you get all the love that you deserve and if you crave sweets then some goodies or flowers or whatever makes you content. My naughty cats got their Valentines gift early because they found the catnip mice and were carrying them around on the cardboard ....which was pathetic so I gave them early.

Purr-sonally speaking

It's time for a New Release at Catch the Bug and this one is called skelekinz heart peeker.   The sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I added Glossy accents to the eye of the Skelekinz and cat which is hard to show up since it is black.  This is such a fun image.

Always & Forever (Elegant)

I wanted to make a variation of the Valentines card using a Spellbinder Swirl Heart in metallic gold and heat embossed sentiment of Always & Forever and this is what I came up with.
For this card I embossed the sentiment on velum and used a ribbon from Stampin' Up.  The background paper is also heat embossed with the white dots.
