Bugaboo Funny Pup

Good morning! Today at Catch the Bug is ABC (Anything But a Card) so I re-purposed a notepad holder that we received when we stayed in a hotel. It is a cute little box with the name of the hotel on the outside and note paper on the inside.  
I printed Bugaboo's Funny Pup twice so I could pop up his eyes (they are hilarious!) nose and collar. I matched the green of the box to his collar pretty good and added a sentiment. It'll sit in our kitchen ready when we need it!
It looks so much better than when we brought it home!
Come back tomorrow when we have a New Release and remember all of July Bugaboo Stamps are 50% off so maybe its a good time to go shopping!

Bugaboo Snowman Bird House

Good morning! What a great Christmas in July week at Catch the Bug we had with gorgeous projects from everyone! I hope you enjoyed the challenges. I'm continuing the Christmas cards with today's theme which is a colour challenge.

I know the colours look like they should be for summer but they work great for a winter card too!

I used Bugaboo's Snowman Bird House and layered the hat, scarf, arm and roof.  Its hard to see in the photo but there are stickles in the middle of all the snowflakes. Take a look at what the other DT created and then have some fun stamping, you could win fantastic stamps!
