Catching the bug!!

My blogging bud, Stamping Mad Janice, is a huge fan of Bugaboo digis and pointed me in the direction of their Christmas in July week long challenge, so here are a couple of Christmas cards that I put together last night to support the week!!

This chap is called Enough Reindeer, don't you just love the look of disappointment on his face, rather like Suzy when she realizes that she doesn't get the "whole" catering sized bag of gravy bones in one go!!

A few challenges for this chap.

Catch the Bug Day 1 - Jingle All the Way
Simon Says Stamp - Furry Friends
Digi Choosday #27 - Christmas in July

Challenge 2 is a sketch and I used Little Winter Penguin Reindeer

coloured to match the papers.

Some more challenges

Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Oh Deer (artistic licence!!?)
Delete if not appropriate
Crafty Creations #293 - Now that's cool

Not sure I will manage the whole week but I'm going to give it a go!!

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon xx

Sarah, oh I just love that face on that reindeer, it's so cute, now that would be our Harris when he doesn't get a treat. Your penguin card it also very cute. Hazel x

Jane Savage said...

Great cards, Sarah! Love, love, love Bugaboo images and that penguin with those fab cool colours is just too cute! However the dog with the ‘why me?’ expression just takes the (dogs) biscuit!!!
Warning…now shifting into DT gear… Thank you for joining us at Digi Choosday! xxx

Janice said...

Whoop whoop, you joined the party! So pleased you made it Sarah, and such super cards to kick off the Christmas week. Suzy has even offered to help, she says to save time she'll feed herself this week - just leave said bag of gravy bones out and she'll help herself!!! Jx

Two fun Christmas cards Sarah, I just love the expression on that dog's face and your penguin is so cute.

Julie B said...

Sooo cute Sarah, love the hangdog expression of the pooch and the cheeky penguin on the second!
It may be overcast but its really heavy out there this morning. Al said he needed a jumper first thing this morning as he sorted lambs for market but he'd get quite a sweat on if he was doing it now!

Oh my gosh Sarah, these are so much fun! I love the sentiment on the reindeer card, so sad in a sweet way. Blue is perfect for a wintery card! hugs :)

Hi Sarah, these card are both lovely - the first is my favourite though, I just love reindeer! - and the sentiment is fab! Such great card designs along with your lovely colouring...I have a sense of rising panic with all the Christmas cards that are popping up!! I need to get a shift on...
