Bugaboo Christmas in July

This is my second post today. I have a cute birthday card posted earlier that you can scroll down to see. It's time to help out my Christmas stash of cards as this week is the Catch the Bug Christmas in July challenge. Today I am already playing catch up as I did two days of cards. I hope to keep up this week but we'll see how the week goes. It's definitely a busy one.

So the theme this year is all about movies. Here's the Day 1 challenge. And I of course used Santa as he seems to be a common theme in all three of these movies.

This is Santa Clause Peeker by Bugaboo stamps. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut him with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles (retired). The sentiment is from Bird's Cards, a long time ago freebie. I die cut the banner's with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags (retired). The designer paper is from American Craft Christmas Collection. The little snowflake sequins are from Crafts Etc.
Entering these challenges:

  1. Catch the Bug Christmas in July Day 1: Movie: The Santa Clause
  2. Sketch Saturday: sketch 
  3. Crafty Hazelnut Christmas: anything goes for a child
Day 2 for the Bugaboo challenge was a sketch challenge.
And as you can see the movie theme was Jingle All the Way. Here's my card.

The image is Circle Sentiment - Jingle Bells from Bugaboo stamps. I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut it from MFT Stitched Circles. The patterned paper is again from American Craft Christmas. I backed everything with red card stock to make it pop from the green base card stock. To finish off I added some self-adhesive gems from Michael's. The tag shape plaid paper is from My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 (retired). 
Entering these challengesL
  1. Catch the Bug Christmas in July Day 2: sketch

Going to call this post quits as storms are coming in. Had one just a bit ago that dropped our temps 15 degrees. We could really use some rain right now. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to get more craft time this week. Stay cool and have a wonderful week!
