Catch The Bug Mini Challenge and Freebie Friday

Woo Hoo it’s Friday, talk about an incredibly hot week in Canada!  Our final mini challenge for Christmas In July is “Anything Goes”.  What a great way to end the week.  I hope you have enjoyed our festivities for the week.  Don’t forget there will be a new linkz that will appear at 7am on the day of the challenge. So you may create ahead of time but must submit your project on the day of the event!

Also a quick reminder that today is the last day to leave a comment on my blog hop post for your chance to win the digital image that I used for the Hop. I will be posting the winner tomorrow on my blog, so be sure to check back and see if it is you!

CS Scarf

I made a ornament using the “CS Scarf” image.  The snowflakes were cut using a Cricut cartridge, and then I added a crystal gem for the centers.  The image was colored with copics and then cut out and layered on the ornament.  The ornament is actually made with a toilet paper roll.  I found a tutorial for this ages ago.  I am going to try and find it again and will add the link for anyone who wants to try it.  It’s very simple to do, and cost nothing, since everyone has toilet paper rolls!

This weeks freebie Friday image is “Deacon Candy Cane”.  You can get this adorable image for free at Bugaboo Stamps, and while you are there have a browse at all the wonderful digital images Bugaboo has to offer!

Deacon Candy Cane

I really love this image, and there will be more like this in the Bugaboo store.  The image was colored with Copics.  I added a bit of glitter on the bells, and the pom pom of his hat.  I used liquid applique and glitter on the trim of the hat.  The gold card stock was embossed with the Christmas folder by Cuttlebug.  I love the rich look of the gold and embossing.
