Saturday, June 5, 2021


Hey there, friends!  Happy first Saturday of June 2021!  Boy, it's so hard for me to comprehend it, but in another 12 days, my younger daughter will be 21 years old!  It seems to me that it wasn't too long ago when I shared here that she was turning 16; and now here we are a mere 5 years later, and she will be old enough to drink legally! 😭  Where did my babies go??  

Anyway, that isn't the reason for my post's the first day for our Anything Goes challenge at Catch the Bug! 

I am really loving the recent changes we made to our challenge blog, as it is so much easier for me to keep track of what is due and when, AND I get to use a lot of images I want to use!  I can see a lot of my Christmas cards having Bugaboo Stamps images on them this year...LOL!  And with that in mind, here is my card:

YAY, I can add another Christmas card to my very small pile for this year!  I used this Snowman 004 image that was already printed and die cut with Spellbinders Labels One largest die.  I also had this lovely piece of watercolor paper sitting around that I had used to play with Tonic shimmer powders, so I decided to pair them together.  I chose Copic markers that matched the colors on the watercolor piece, added some white gel pen accents on various parts of the image, and spread out some Star Dust Stickles over the snow on the ground.  I usually add some to the image too; not sure why I didn't this time, but I may add some later on. The image panel is popped up on foam tape.
I really wanted to use as much of the pretty water colored piece as I could, so I cut it to fit a 5.5" square card base with a border showing all the way around.  For the sentiment, I pulled out the Sizzix Christmas Phrases One die set.  I cut each word 4 times from 110 lb. white card stock scraps, and glued them together.  To make it more cohesive with the image, I added the Stickles to the bottoms of each word.  And that does it for this Christmas card! 😍
