Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating a Christmas in July event with daily challenges! Here is my entry for Day 3 (July 17). I tried to come up with an unusual way to use the sweet snowman image. Then found this rub on image in my stash. The saying, "Love you THIS much" fit perfectly in his outstretched arms, er, twigs! Just bought a bag of summer tags at JoAnne's and one of them worked perfectly for this challenge.

This card is another entry into Poppy Power’s current challenge-“Copy a Bloomie” i.e. their design team members. This one was inspired by the card posted below that was created by the talented Julie Koerber! (Her cards challenge me to use bolder colors and in work… and to invest in some Copics. My budget doesn’t allow this at present, but I’m saving up!) Note- Julies card that I CASEd is posted below.
The Christmas disks are actually gift tags that I bought at the 75% off after Christmas many years ago. Colored them with Tombow markers, and trimmed them down to work perfectly for this challenge.

This card is for my final entry into Simon Says Plaid challenge. Has been a fun challenge as I found that I have a lot of plaid papers… and also like to make my own. This card features a Ziggy sticker from a sheet of stickers that I’ve had forever. I fussy cut around the sticker to get rid of the excess white salvage. (Learned that fussy cutting stickers is a bit tricky… or should I say sticky?!) The hearts were fussy cut from a ribbon scrap. Also a bit tricky to cut out. Am finished fussy cutting for a bit. Ha! Like that will ever happen. I think that I actually fussy cut in my sleep. When I was young my mom used to tease me about how much I liked to use scissors. Actually, if I remember correctly, “someone” got into big trouble for using Mom’s quilt scissors on paper. Who knew that was an action that brought about strict sanctions? A scissor is a scissor right? Wrong! But I digress… here is my card. (PS- The inside of the card reads, "But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.")
