Hi all! Our area was deluged with rain and thunderstorms the past two days. It was the kind of ridiculously strong rain where you can’t see through it to drive. It was also timed perfectly to happen when we were picking my husband up from the train station! On the positive side, it gave me lots of time in my craft room. I wanted to participate in the Catch the Bug Christmas in July challenges, so I colored up a bunch of Bugaboo images. Today I have my cards for the first three challenges.
First up is my card for the Show Us Your Santa challenge.
When I try to participate in all of these challenges, I have to keep things simple. I found some great papers from Lilybee Designs Christmas Cheer and paired them up with kraft and some pretty lace. To add a bit to the Old World Santa 1 image, I used a Snow Marker to puff up his robe.
Next up is the Stella Says Sketch for Christmas in July.
This is one of my favorite cards for the challenges. Snowman images are fun because they don’t require a lot of coloring. I opted to not do any shading on this guy, but focused solely on his accessories. I added some Stickles to his snow pile for a bit of sparkle.
Finally for today is Monday’s Color Challenge card.
Color Challenges usually trip me up, however, for this one I went searching for an image that would accommodate the colors. Little Penguin – Skate has the perfect scarf to do just that. He’s such a cutie! This layout is a go to layout for a quick and simple card for me.
