Bugaboo's Christmas In July

Come and have some fun. We are kicking off the week long Christmas In July Celebration with a Blog Hop at Bugaboo. So if you just came from

You are in the right spot. 

Today's Challenge is Show Us Your Santa. The design Team has come up with some great Cards for you to enjoy and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog. Each Designer will pick a random comment to win the image that we used for our project for today. 
For my card today I used the Tropical Santa-Tubing. Santa is hanging out relaxing before the big Holiday Season is upon us all. I colored the image with my Copics and added some Liquid Applique and some Zig glitter brush pen on the top of that. The papers are Bo Bunny. So bright and fun. 
 I coated the inner tube and nose with Crystal Effects.
 The heat tool made the Crystal Effects bubble a little and I really like the way it looks.
 And then inside the card is bright and ready to write.
Don't forget to start the Blog Hop over at the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and be sure to go there to see all the details about today's Challenge as well as a list for all the fun we have planned for the week.
So now head on over to 


So continue on with the hop and have Fun! Thanks for stopping by.
