Christmas in July at Catch the Bug

Happy Saturday! I've been MIA this week working and getting ready for the "reveal" party. Sunday my daughter and SIL are going to announce the gender of the twins and what their names will be. They have the party at our house so I have to do the cleaning and cooking. So that's what's up for tomorrow and Sunday. Mostly I just have to make salads as we are doing a cook out. Grandpa will be manning the grill.
Today begins one of my favorite challenges over at Catch the Bug Challenge blog. The sixth annual Christmas in July: a whole week of fun challenges with wonderful prizes to be had and a special new set just for the week. Be sure to hop over to Catch the Bug for all the details.

So today's challenge is "Some of my best friends are flakes: use snowmen or snowflakes." That's an easy challenge. Everyone has a snowman in their stamps. Here's my card for the challenge.

 I wanted a really colorful card. The background paper is called Bokeh from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. I colored the Snow Friends Window with Copc and Bic markers. The window is popped up from the base. I made a ticket from the sentiment which is from Create with TLC and then inked the ticket and sentiment in and ombre style using Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry distress ink. I found some snowflakes in my stash to add to the card.
I am entering these challenges:

I hope you will join us for today's snowmen challenge and stayed tuned all week for a new challenge every day. Some awesome prizes could be yours if you play along. Thanks for stopping by today and come back tomorrow for more Bugaboo fun. Oh, and don't forget the Bugaboo sale.

Easy to tell you've got a happy wkend coming up (even if you are busy with the chores!). Blessings to all involved, and happiness too. Loved your snowies peeking out of the window. Clever way to use this, and it looks so nice put on at a wonky angle. Loving the tri color rectangles with the bokeh design. The snowflakes add a nice bit of bling too! Great job. Hugs & TFS
