Bingo - Christmas in July - Day 4

Today is the fourth day of the fun Christmas in July event over at Catch the Bug. One week, 7 challenges, different prizes are up for grab for those who enter one or all the challenges - you can read more about it here.

Today we're playing BINGO. And since Tuesday is New release day in the Bugaboo shop the designers have used the latest addition, as sweet little Christmas hedgehog.

I used the horizontal top row of ribbon, shiney (mirri card panels and brad) and embossing (the snowflakes on the bauble are heat embossed with silver EP). I added white glitter to the trimmings of the hat and the image was colored with Promarkers. Two DPs (Bo Bunny?) used and I machine stitched around the edges.

This card is also for:
The Glory of Christmas (The Christmas Challenge) - #88 Two or More Patterned Papers
Creative Knockouts - #149 Animal Antics
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes

Pia, how sweet this is! I love the theme of putting your little Christmas Decorator inside an ornament (with the mirror cardstock) - and that ribbon and jeweled bow are lovely! Wonderful stitching and your patterned paper is lively and festive! Darling card, my friend!

Your Day 3 tag is VERY SWEET! pun intended. Darling gingerbread - I love the colors and design, and all the scents that go along with it!

Pretty scallop borders on your Day 2 card! And the tilted, fallen halo on your bear is fun!

But my favorite so far is Day 1! I am in love with your textures and colors there! Have a great week, Pia! hugs, de

Oh so cute image ! Love the bow with the brad !

Yes it's difficul when eyes have problems pfff !
I have some cards made in advance so I could publish a little ;-). The eye doctor had not forbidden me the computer, but if I made too much, it makes me tired eyes!
And yes, the scrap, the cuts are difficult to achieve, bouuhh!
Fortunately we are in summer, and there are other things to do in the garden etc ... but here the weather is not very nice, lol, bouhhh!

Hope your holidays was beautiful !
I wish you a nice day my friend !

Your little hedgie is so adorable! Love your stitching and gorgeous papers! I am enjoying your Christmas inspiration! I'm falling behind in the challenge, I'm afraid - there's no way I'll get all of the days done!

Marina said...

Yes I think that is one of my favourite papers, from a Bo Bunny set with wooden skis in it! Cute image and great use of haberdashery for a lovely Christmas card.

Gorgeous card, Pia, I love the soft colours, I need to get back to using some designer paper in instead of plain embossed backgrounds I seem to go through stages of using it or not..
AND I need to make my Christmas cards... well done!
Thanks so much for the inspiration.
