Bugaboo Christmas in July Day 7

It’s the final day for the Bugaboo Christmas in July challenges and being a Friday it is tied in with the Friday Freebie coupled with a colour challenge

However I have gone with last week’s freebie.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – AKV Santa Tree
Docrafts Christmas Greeting Stamp
X-Press It card
red, purple and pink mirri card
DL card blank
scalloped rectangle dies
sparkly gel pens
Copic pens

The image has been coloured with Copic pens and gel pens to add some sparkle. Both the image and the greeting have been cut with dies.

The mirri card has been used to cover the card front and to add some interesting mats. I hhave tried to stick to the colours in the challenge as much as I can.

Well I have managed all 7 challenges and mostly on the correct day! I do enjoy the Bugaboo Christmas in July events but it is always such a busy time at school with the end of the academic year that I usually only manage a couple of entries. This year I am not working as many hours and with no teaching have no preparation to do therefore more time. But now house decorating and holiday calls so it will probably be a bit quiet in the craftroom for a while.

Thank you for dropping by. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug Christmas in July Day 7 – Friday Freebie and Colour Challenge
If You Give a Crafter A Cookie #48


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Beautiful card, Pippa! I really like the glossy cardstock and the glittered bits. Gives it such pizzazz, which is perfect for Christmas. Glad you were able to do some of the challenges, especially with your busy schedule! I didn’t realize that you were still in school at this time of year. Here in the states, we have been out for a few weeks now, although the girls go back mid-August. I haven’t been able to be around in Blogland much in the last months, but am finally back to it. I had to start a whole new blog because my other got accidentally deleted. Anyway, I hope you are having a good summer despite the busy-ness of it, and that you will soon get some well-deserved downtime. Hugs!
