WELCOME BACK TO BUGABOO'S CHRISTMAS IN JULY EVENT -- DAY 6 -- THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2020

Hi again, my friends!  It's already day 6 of Bugaboo's Christmas in July event; I can't believe it has gone by so fast!  Only one more day of Christmas fun after this... 😔  But for today, let's see some Oldie But Goodie goodness, shall we?


I didn't do the photo challenge with this one; instead I wanted to share a card I made in honor of Julie:


Now, I know this was also the freebie this past Friday, but as I was scrolling through Julie's blog to find a card to CASE, I found one with this image that I thought was perfect:

card made by Julie Temple

I copied her card pretty much exactly, with a few small changes due to what I had on hand.  I love her little present shaped button down in the lower left corner of the image panel!  I really hope she would have liked my CASE of her cute card!

So, my patterned paper comes from the Recollections 12x12 Fa La La La paper pad.  All card stock comes from Recollections as well. The gems are probably from Michael's.  Deacon is colored with alcohol markers.

--CHALLENGES--

CHNC #499:  ATG Christmas

Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to stop by the Catch the Bug blog for some more Christmas in July inspiration, and check out Julie's blog also.  She really made great cards!  Until tomorrow, 
Take Care, and God Bless!

  3. Super cute card, Marie!!! Great job coloring the little girl elf with her armful of packages! I like the center element being tilted a bit,,, it just wouldn't have the same impact if everything was squared up perfect! Thank you for sharing your card an creative talents with us at Double Trouble!!! -Donna
