Three For One

It's Sassy Cheryl's Challenges in the barrel today, and I got really industrious. I didn't make one card, but two. Along with that, it's also time for the Show Me Thursday Challenge. I decided I'd give my faithful followers a break and only make them drop in one time instead of three. You can see I'm a very accommodating blogger(we won't mention the fact that I only had to type up one blog instead of three).

Sassy Flip-Flop Jeni set the challenge this week on the Sassy Cheryl  Challenge Blog  to "What's Buggin You?" Too bad I didn't get this message last week when I made my card challenge using the Ladybug bear. This week, I couldn't make up my mind between two images, so I decided to make a card with each. Since these are going in my Operation Write Home box, it's all good. I used the same sketch using a ladybug paper that I think came from Cuddly Buddly, and solid papers that I made to match using Photoshop.  The first image I chose was the Thinking of You Boy image  and the second image is called Gentle Friends. Both are colored with Copics. Both images can be found at the Sassy Cheryl's Digi Store.
Thinking of You

Gentle Friends

The Thinking of You image was a freebie from MelJen's and the Am I Bugging You? sentiment is one I created for my sister to use on a card. Feel free to grab it if you like.

Needless to say that with making two cards at the same time and using different colored Copics, I had quite the mess going in Tazmania. I'm also using this blog post to enter the  Show Me Thursday, where just by showing your work space you can enter Sassy Cheryl's Blog Challenge for a free image. Well I want you all to see my workspace as I left it this afternoon after making the two cards above. Yep, I cleaned it all up. I know Cheryl is going to be so proud of me. Now I'm ready to go start working on another project. Thanks for stopping by.
My coloring and assembly area
Cutting end of the table, that's usually piled high with paper scraps
I even cleaned up the area around my computer
Are you all suitably impressed, that even my tall table top is clean


  1. I see so much room for me to come to play in Tazmania. Your cards are precious. I keep seeing that ladybug border punch lately and I likee!

  2. WOW, girlie. You've been one busy bee! Lovin' those two GORGEOUS cards! The sentiments are super fun . . . but I don't think you could bug anybody! :)
    And I am TOTALLY impressed with your clean-up job. Which took you longer? The cards or the clean up? :)
    Thanks for playing in both the Sassy Cheryl's challenge and the SHOW ME fun. Yep. . are a very accommodating Blogger.

  4. So much eye candy in one blog post! Wow, my friend! The cards are sooo very cute. I love them both and you know I love the lady bugs-love bugs! Tazmania is amazing!!! I am most impressed with your clean up. I recently attacked my space so it's looking a wee bit better but not nearly as sweet as this one!
