Christmas In July Celebration At Bugaboo

Well the Day is here. Our third annual Christmas In July Festivities over at Bugaboo starts this morning with a Blog Hop! Yipee! I am so lucky to have been here from the start and get to work with these fantastic people. What a great team.

Now if you are just arriving from
 
you are in the right spot on the Hop! If you need to go back to the start click
HERE (Bugaboo Challenge Blog) would also be a great spot to see all the details of the week long celebration. A list of all the Challenges and Prizes up for grabs. One luck person who leaves a comment on my blog today will get the image I used for free. Whoopee!
I used Jodie's Image Tropical Santa-Drink and the papers are DCWV from a couple of years ago.
Very bright and tropical just what we are looking for in the Challenge today.
I used Liquid Applique with Stickles on top for his trim and beard.
And inside the card.
 
Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. So now you are headed for:
 

Have a great Hop everyone.
