Bugaboo Christmas In July - Day 1

How are your Christmas cards getting along this year? My supplies are shocking and it is for that reason I'm using the Bugaboo Christmas in July week long event to kick start 2013 production.

The last 3 years, I have made Christmas cards throughout the year, but by this New Year I felt I needed a break and would be fresher for my Christmas projects if I left them till later in the year, so this is it, the start of Christmas 2013 with the help of Bugaboo.

The challenge today was to take inspiration from a sunbathing Santa picture.  I went along with Santa & used an AKV Santa - Snow image I won last year in the Christmas in July event by completing the blog hop.




So, my card is actually a gift wallet - a simple design, but I have to say a very popular one and one that sells very well at craft fairs when people want to gift money or gift cards.

Challenges;
Bugaboo Christmas in July - Day 1 - Inspiration from Santa picture.
CAS on Sunday - Christmas in July
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in July
Christmas Cards All Year Round - All about Santa
