The Bugaboo 5th Christmas in July Challenge - Day 1

Well here we are again, the annual Bugaboo Christmas in July Event - & I love it!


I can't believe it's been a year since last time, but as always, I am up for the challenge and so have been busy Christmas crafting!

So, the fun began yesterday with the challenge set as "Jingle Bells."  So I dug out a circular sentiment stamp and then, as they say in McDonalds... "I went large!"  Kept my card simple, mostly white with lots of layers, stitching and embossing with the only colour popped on the image.  Finally, my favourite glossy accents decorated my holly leaves and berries and that was it! So...

Saturday Challenge - Jingle All The Way - Day 1



Challenges;
Catch The Bug - Day 1 - Jingle All The Way
4 Crafty Chicks - Christmas in July
Jingle Belles - Bells

As quite a few of you know, I'm a huge Bugaboo fan and so urge all of my crafty buddies to join in the fun this week.  So far I've got Hazel on board, but it would be great if more of my buddies joined us, so come on you lot - Join the Party!!!
