Bugaboo Day 5 Holiday Chaos 2017 - Humour Me Wed.

Bugaboo Day 5  - Holiday Chaos 2017-  Humor Me Wed. at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog

Here it is day 5 already. The Catch the Bug challenge today is to make something with humour in it. Hope I succeeded with this poor doggy and his attempt to join the reindeer pulling Santa's sled. He does look a little forlorn does he not.

I used a Bugaboo image called 'Puppy - enough reindeer'. He is just so cute and the fun sentiment is part of the set. The large white snowflake is 'Impression Obsession DIE024-X'. The sentiment tag  holder from Spellbinders 'Fancy Tags' and the background was embossed with  Stampin' Up's Falling Snowflakers embossing folder. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the  fancy strip  behind the image.

 Bugaboo Day 4 - Holiday Chaos- 2017  Bingo Challenge

There is a lot of fun going on over at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog with their annual Holiday Chaos challenges. Today is day 4 and the Challenge is " Bingo". I choose one of easier columns consisting of the following : Traditional Christmas Colours, Free and Bugaboo Image. I  used the image  of Christmas Bird 001  and coloured her with  Prismacolor Markers. The sentiment  is an unkown brand as I lost the info on who sold it. Was in a package of clear stamps.

Bugaboo Day 3 - Holiday Chaos- 2017 Anything But a Card

Bugaboo Day 3 - Holiday Chaos 2017- Anything But a Card
 I needed a gift bag to hold a few items for my great nephew's Christmas present.  I will put into it  a couple of  little toy cars, a bag of candy and a Christmas card  with some money. I used Bugaboo's  'kkcornament'  stamp for my image and coloured him with Copics and Prismacolour Markers. Papers are from my Christmas stash.

Love the sketch and this is my interpretation of it.  I used Bugaboo's  Skinny Bird Candy Cane (BUGSBC02)  image and coloured  the image with a mixture of of Copics and Prismacolor Markers.  The Paper is  Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler and  Whisper White. I used a Stampin' Up embossing folder  ( Decorative Dots) for the background  and used a  punch from Michael's for the Snowflakes. The sentiment  is from  two separate die cuts.
