Bugaboo Christmas in July, Show Us Your Santa!

Thanks for joining the Bugaboo Design Team for our Christmas In July Blog Hop! This blog hop kicks off a whole week of fun Challenges and a chance to win some Awesome prizes!

You should have arrived from Kathy Curry's Blog

Today's Challenge is "Show Us Your Santa"  For my card today I used Old World Santa 1 from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured the image with copics, and sponged the edges of the oval with Tim Holtz antique linen.

The card base is cherry cobbler with a layer of natural embossed on the top with the Cloudy Day EF. The bottom is designer paper from My Minds Eye. I used the EK pine tree edge punch on the green and finished it off with some twine.

Please join our challenge and upload your creation to the Catch The Bug Blog! If you don't have a Santa, Bugaboo Has several and all images are 50% off for the month of July, but you don't have to use a Bugaboo Image to play along.

Make sure to follow the hop and comment along the way for your chance to win Blog Candy!

And now it's time to hop on over to Lola Cordova's Blog! 

Happy Hopping,
Laurie
