Santa on vacation

 Project using Santa Scuba from Bugaboo

Sketch used from Catch the Bug


I was one of the privilege contesters that have won the Xmas in July series from Bugaboo. I really do appreciate them. It will make it much easier to create Christmas cards with a warmer theme than snowflakes and jingle bells. This one is called Santa Scuba. The scallop paper is from Basic Grey and the light blue is from Me to you, especially for you. I've used soft magic on the frame and some glitter on the hat. My sentiment: "Luckily Christmas can be celebrated all over the world....even under the sea". Unfortunately some of the paint fell off from my eyelet crab when I smacked it in. The twist is to add a flower. I've sneaked  a brad in between the sea stars. Wasn't sure how to create a sea flower.

Challenges I'm joining:
Catch the Bug Challenge - Sketch
Cupcake Craft Challenge #202 - Ocean
The Crazy Challenge #125 - Ocean
Crafty Calender July - Fun in the sun with sparkle and shine
Cards for men # 15 - Christmas in July
Digi makeover Challenge #46 - Favourite Holiday

Thank you

Goeie More Olga

Ag my jinne, daai kersvader is te oulik. Ek vind dit ook baie moeilik om Kerskaartjies te maak met meeste van die bestaande stempels - meeste het 'n winter tema, ek self het nog nooit 'n "white Christmas" beleef nie.

Lekker dag verder.
