Time for the Annual Christmas In July Blog Hop with Bugaboo Stamps!


Hi, everyone! 
At Catch the Bug, we are celebrating
CHRISTMAS IN JULY
all week long, starting today!
We're kicking it off with a blog hop!

 You should have arrived here from Imke's blog. 
She is our July Biggest Fan, and we invited her to join us in the hop! If you didn't arrive from there, please go back to Catch the Bug Blog to start at the beginning: 
We don't want you to miss out on all the fun and prizes! :)

For todays hop, the design team for Bugaboo Stamps has put together some creations for you based on a theme:
We'd love for you to join the fun, simply 
SHOW US YOUR SANTA!
Here's my guy.....er....gal! (Who says Santa has to be a dude, right?! lol!)
 :)
I kept her CAS.....and most importantly, to me.....mailable in an A2 envelope with one stamp! lol! I'm so cheap, I know! lol!

For my card, I've used the Dottie - Christmas Shop. She is colored in PSE. I loved the color that Ms. Min chose for the this years Christmas in July theme, and used those for my card! My "Joy" sentiment is a retired Sizzlit die. Papers are from Paper Studio. My curved edge is fussy cut.
Be sure to leave a comment below, as I will be choosing a random commenter to win this image after our Christmas in July celebrations have ended! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
Your next stop on the blog hop is Cynthia's blog!

Have fun hopping! I hope to see you again this week for more Christmas in July fun!

  6. This is a great example of a CAS card that will fit perfectly in an envelope! We do need to make those that are practical, and not too costy, for postage too. I think your CAS design is really clever, far from plain, and I like how you used non traditional colors as well.

  47. Love this card Cheryl and I had to laugh about your 'cheap' comment - you're just saving on postage so you can purchase additional craft supplies! :) Thanks so much for all the wonderful work you have done and are doing to help while I finish cookin' our little addition.
