Welcome to DAY 4 of  The 12 Days of Doodlebug


I am so excited about this 12 day series that I am doing here on my blog – I LOVE DOODLEBUG and I have been a user and collector for the past 15 years!! Anything made by them delights and excites me – I love their bright, happy colors and incredibly cute icons and borders they make!! I thought doing this series would be a perfect way for me to lead up to and celebrate my birthday with you – There will be prizes – more on that at the end!!!

I am going to keep things really simple today since it is Easter weekend!

I used the Doodlebug Design Create-a-Card system and made a Happy Day to you! card.


I used a Beetle Black  Slim Filigree card and added stickers and tags from the Hello, Sunshine collection’s This and That page!


After adding the stickers I tied a bow using Doodlebug twine and added that to the card!!

As a bonus to this event – I am giving away Prizes/Gifts to Celebrate My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

The Prizes I will be giving away are pictured here –

A Corner Chomper


a $25 gift certificate to any store (on-line or walk-in)


 This  Stampin’ Up! stamp set


An Avery Elle mini stamp with die



My Sweet, super amazing friend, Cynthea Sandoval, who is the creator of Doodlebug Designs sent me a prize of Doodlebug products to give to one of you lucky winners!!! So super excited and I appreciate her support so much!!!

It is $40 worth of items from this Birthday collection:


Here’s how you can win: Visit my blog and comment on as many of my Doodlebug posts as you can/want!! 1 comment per person per post!  The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win!  I will use Random.org to determine the lucky winners!!

Winners will be announced by 12 noon MST on Monday, April 13th!!!

In case you were wondering how to get your hands on some Doodlebug cuteness  – I wanted to mention that there are some on-line stores that I shop at to find Doodlebug Design items!

I shop at A Cherry on Top and Scrapbook.com and Paper Issues!

If you shop at A Cherry on Top and they asked who referred you – I would love it if you put my name down – you earn points for people referred to them!! I love this site because they get the NEW stuff FAST and then you can get it!!! **grin**  Also Scrapbook.com is offering  free shipping after $50 orders (til April 5th) And Paper Issues carries a lot of the smaller items of Doodlebug – they don’t carry a lot of 12 by 12 stuff!! They do package things up pretty and are fun to shop with!!!  Happy shopping!!!!

Hope you have a bright, sunny and happy  Easter weekend!!!

    Your card is darling! I love how everything pops against the black card! I am feeling incredibly mad at myself. I had every intention of getting a card in the mail to you on Friday so it would be there on Monday and I just remembered that I completely failed to do that. So sorry…

    What a super card. Love all the tiny tag sentiments. I always make the same size card, but I really like this tall rectangle…gives it a little something, something! hugs, :)

    First, you need to sprint that card over to Less Is More, where the challenge is “mostly black,” – your card is a perfect fit! Second, your card is marvelous…black with those bright colours has such zing! Those chevrons set me heart a pitter-pattering! I think Doodlebug should hire your full time; you make their products shine!
