Baby It's Cold Outside

Happy Monday! The start of another week. Hard to believe how fast they go. Bugaboo Stamps is having their annual Christmas in July challenge all this week. It;s a great way to get some Christmas cards made and win some nice digital stamps. I love Bugaboo. So I am playing catch up. Not having my computer is really causing me some problems. I am hoping that today might be the day but given their track record so far I am not holding my breathe. Ugh!
So the first challenge is Baby It;s Cold Outside. Not so around here but my card is making me feel cooler.

So this image from Bugaboo isn't on their site. I don;t know if it hasn't been brought over from their old website yet or if it's retired. But he's an adorable bear on skates. Perfect for cold winter weather. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut him and the sentiment with MFT Cross-Stitch Oval dies. The sentiment is from Simon Says Big Holiday Wishes stamp set from 2013. The designer paper is from my scrap box and I added three small snowflakes for embellishments. All layers are backed with black card stock. I am entering these challenges:
I have to volunteer this afternoon at Opportunity House. So my afternoon is full. Tomorrow I hope to get caught up with some things around the house like meal planning, cleaning and laundry. I'll have to pick tomatoes this evening so I will probably have enough to make juice; another project for tomorrow. Have a wonderful week this week. Hope you will make some Christmas cards and join in the Bugaboo challenges!

Love this blue card, makes the 'cold outside' theme even more chilly if you know what I mean. Nice image choice too!
