CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!! BUGABOO STYLE

This post will remain at the top until Saturday July 19, 2014.
Please scroll down for current post.

IT'S TIME, IT'S TIME!!!!

Are you as excited as I am?  

I absolutely love our annual Christmas In July at Catch The Bug, don't you?!!  It's filled with fun challenges, great prizes and loads of fabulous Bugaboo  inspired projects.  The best part is you will be able to check off some of those Christmas cards or projects from your to do list! You can never start too early on Christmas!

 So let's get this party started with the big, jolly guy himself!

SHOW US YOUR SANTA'S

We're kicking off our celebration with a blog hop, but if you started at the beginning you already know that and came here from Angela's blog.

 If you just came here to check out my blog, and want to hop along, the best place to start is here at the beginning.

Here is my Santa card featuring Bugaboo Stamps AKV Santa-presents.


Keeping it kind of simple on this one.  I colored the image using a combination of Copics and PSE 12 , then added the snowflake embossed side strips just to punch it up a bit. I still felt like it needed a little something more, so I added the snowflakes and ribbon.  Still simple but fun. 
Now  it's time to head on to Billie's blog, the next stop along the hop.

Don't forget to leave a comment here for a chance to win the image (or image of your choice if you have this one already) I used on my card and don't forget to tell your friends about all the fun and exciting challenges we're having this week.

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN
