Bugaboo Stamps & Catch the Bug: 07/16/2011 Christmas in July Blog Hop

The jolly good fun has begun, 
and it's about damn time. . .;) 

If you came here from Totally Stampalicious's Jocelyn Turner's blog, Stamps 'n' Coffee, then you're in the right place. . .HI! :D



WHAT: Blog Hop, Challenge, Mini-Challenges, & Prizes
WHEN: 07/16/2011 @ 7:00 AM EST 
WHERE: Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug
WHY: What else are ya' gonna do when it's 100+ degrees outside? 


If you're headed to Totally Stampalicious's Becky Kuhne's blog, Stampin' For Fun! now, then you're going in the right direction. . .BYE! :D


PS. Why the hell do I have to be sandwiched between JocelynBecky?!?!? They're the lovin'-from-the-oven Wonder Bread slices to my my weeks-in-the-back-of-the-refrigerator pimento cheese loaf - So not cool! Totally Stampalicious is just the tip of the iceberg - Both of these sistahs are some seriously swanky, swingin' stampers! If you're into rubbah (And you know who you are, you kinky little sex monkeys. . .;), then you're simply gonna have to walk-this-way!

PSS. Dammit, I knew I'd forget something! Post a comment on my blog to be entered into a random drawing for the digital image that I used on my project above - Knobby Knees Christmas | Joy.

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, Stampin' Up! card stock, The Paper Studio designer paper, Copic Markers, Liquid Applique, KI Memories Ribbon ribbon, Mark Richards embellishments.

Challenge: Fairy Knoll - Christmas in July.
Challenge: Simply Create - #48 Christmas Time.
Challenge: Stamp Something - Christmas in July.
Challenge: Stamping With the Dragon - Christmas in July.
Challenge: Craft Us Crazy - #12 Christmas in July.
Challenge: Digistamps 4 Joy - #23 Christmas in July.
Challenge: Simon Says Stamp! - Anything Goes.
Challenge: Digi's With Attitude - Anything Goes.

I love the colors that you did the card in. You have the traditional Christmas colors in the digi but then paired it with the pretty pink and teal. The jewels and ribbon just set the whole thing off. Gorgeous!
