Christmas in July...

...has arrived over at Bugaboo Stamps.

This post will stay at the top until the event is over - please scroll down to see new posts.

Details of the week-long event that started yesterday (Sat 9 July) can be found here.

There are lots of prizes. The fun challenges that will go 'live' with a link on a daily basis and you can hop over to the site to see what everyone is up to here and then scroll down to the relevant day as the information post will stay at the top of their blog.

This post will stay at the top of my blog for the week of the event and I will add my 'makes' as I go...so this post will grow as the week goes on. The daily challenges are listed below and I will add my photos as the challenge goes live - I'm hoping that I manage to get them all done; we shall see.

Saturday, July 9 – A Theme Challenge – 

 
My 'day-one' make features both snowflakes & a snowman...
...the post showing all the entries & DT samples can be found here.
 
 
Sunday, July 10 - Sketch
 
Day two and we have a sketch to follow...
...and I decided to go for a fairly CAS look, although there is plenty of bling & sparkle. Here is the link for day two's post over at the Catch the Bug blog. 

Monday, July 11 – 

 
 
Day three is asking for tags, so here we go...
 

 
...a couple of tags (I actually got to play with my new tag punch) and the post can be found here.
 

Tuesday, July 12- New Release + Bingo
 
Day four and I had to use a JJ image...
...and the bingo line that I went for was "Sparkly/Bugaboo image/Lime green". The image is obvious (I do so love the JJ images), there is lime green on the image & the embellies and there are sparkly flat-back gems and a bit of foiling to round off. I think that just about covers it. The day four entries can be found here.


Wednesday, July 13 - Humor Me Wednesday + 

Day five and a bit of a recipe to follow...
 
...some scallops (used my threading water border punch), bling (red gems & stickles) and layers (red tartan card). The post where you can see all the entries is here.

 
Thursday, July 14 - Oldie But Goodie + Photo Challenge

 
Day six, well the holiday Santa's had to come out...
 
 
...and the photo of the flip-flops made me think of Santa with his surf-board. Take a look here at what other folk came up with.

Friday, July 15 - Friday Freebie and Color challenge


Last but not least is the Day seven challenge which as you can see involves a selection of colours...
...and as you can see, they all appear in the coloured image that I used. If you want to see what the DT came up with, take a look here.

Phew, I actually managed all seven challenges. I really didn't think I was going to get there as this week has just flown by
 
Let's see how many I manage...well folks it is all seven, so I now have another seven Chrimbo cards to add to this year's stock.
 
But that's it for "Christmas in July 2016" - I hope some of you were able to play along too.................
