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

  8. 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

  10. 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!
