Warm Winter Wishes

Bugaboo Christmas Blog Hop

Ho Ho Ho....welcome to the hop!!!
So many prizes and surprises...


If you just came from Sue (SCS Gallery), you are in the right place in the hop.  Or, if you are just starting, start HERE(Catch The Bug blog).

I have many friends that don't get snow during the Christmas season nor "chestnuts roasting on an open fire"...more like a pig roasting in an open pit!...haha  I chose Crab image from Bugaboo and created a half step card. I turned the digi into an svg and made the bulb svg last year.  

Someone will be the lucky winner of the crab image or another image of your choice that you see on another member's site" today".  I'm allowing this option since the crab isn't really a Christmas image...so you will have a choice. Leave a comment for a chance to win a free image from Bugaboo.

I'm revisiting my bulb svg and offering it as a freebie for next two days.

You are almost at the end of the hop.  I hope you had a great time hopping along.  Your LAST stop is  at Catch The Bug HERE. AND....You must leave your name at the linkz to be eligible for the prizes.

  18. Funny card, Cely. I started with you, so I will have to go back to the beginning ;- ) you remind me that I'd love to do a step or half step card, as soon as I'm not busy trying to keep up with the next birthday or anniversary. Maybe in January, ha, ha! Enjoy your day and keep cool.
