Bugaboo's Christmas in July Blog Hop

(For my Crazy4Challenges blog post go here.)

Hello......Joanne here.....and I am so excited to be a part of the Bugaboo's Christmas in July Blog Hop.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.!  I hope that means you arrived from the fabulous Becky's blog for the Bugaboo's Christmas in July Blog Hop Bugaboo has put together a weeklong celebration you will not want to miss out on!

My card uses Bugaboo's Winter Bird Friend.  I kept it pretty simple, using some gingham dp, a MS snowflake border punch, my Marvy corner roundet, a MS large snowflake punch, a Marvy snowflake punch, and a mini EK Success snowflake punch.  I added a few rhinstones and a touch of paper piercing, and that's about it. (The sentiment stamp is from Whipper Snapper.)

Now you need to head on over to the talented Cammy's blog.  Make sure you leave comments at each stop because each DT member will be giving away the image they used for the hop and of course there are many more to be earned along the way!!

Should you get lost along the way, click here to go the Catch the Bug Blog to find your way as all blog stops will be listed there.

AND...last but not least, I would like to thank Bugaboo for asking the Totally Stampalcious Design Team to join them in this blog hop.  Totally Stampalcious sells the acrylic version of many of Bugaboo's designs.
