Day 4 & 5 at Catch the Bug

I have a two fer day today. I am catching up with the Christmas in July challenges. So Day 4 was a bingo board.

I chose to do the top right to the bottom left corner diagonally (sparkle, Bugaboo Christmas image, bling or pearls).

The image is Bugaboo's Little Penguin Winter Bench. I colored it with a variety of different markers and then started to add bling and sparkle. There are a number of adhesive gems on the tree and I used Yellow Stickles on the star and Crystal Stickles for the snow. The light embellishments are from MFT Happy Pawlidays stamps and coordinating dies. I used a white gel pen to accent the lights and then drew lines to connect them. I used several dies: MFT Stitched Inside and Out Rounded Squares and Spellbinder's Lacy Squares. The background paper is a scrap of American Craft paper. And I added gold ribbon. I am entering these challenges:
Now for Day 5 (today) the challenge was to create a funny project.
Since Santa was in a bathing suit in the image I decided to use one of the Tropical Santa's from Bugaboo.

The image is Tropical Santa Surfing. I colored him with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers. The background paper is from Trimgym and I thought it kind of looked like waves. The image is die cut with Gina Marie Cross Stitch Rectangles. The sentiment was a freebie from Paper Crafts magazine and the flip flops were a freebie from Betty Bee. The sentiment is die cut with Quikcutz Tags and inked with Barn Door distress ink. The red paper is from my American Craft Christmas stash and actually has darker red dot but they aren't very visible in the photo. I added some ribbon from my stash. I love the red, white and blue color scheme. I am entering these challenges:
I am done for now. But tomorrow is a color challenge. I always find that difficult. Love sketches but give me a pallet of  colors and I freak. We'll see how I do. 
Today was my last day volunteering at Head Start for this school year. They only take a two week break so I'll go back mid-August. I really love playing with the kids. Only 4 of the 8 will move to the new room but one of their teachers is moving with them so that will be awesome. Hope your week is progressing well. We are on the down side now. Take care!

Two wonderful cards Donna. Day 4 card is so nice and sparkly and yes we seemed to be on the same wavelength. I think we both did just fine lol! Day 5 brought a smile to my face, so cute. I don't know why but I find humorous cards so very hard to make. Glad that one is done and over.
