 Saturday Challenge: Birthday
at Catch the Bug

Happy 2nd Birthday

Penguin Birthday - Candle image from Bugaboo Stamps is what I chose to create a birthday card for this weeks challenge.  WHY? Bugaboo just turned "2"!!! How wonderful!  We begin a birthday hop and a  challenge each day now through Jan. 20.  Lots of goodies, inspiration and prizes.

I couldn't be more proud than to be a part of the design team for Catch The Bug. Head over there and begin the week long journey in celebrating Bugaboo Stamps 2nd birthday.


A2, stitching, igloo Silhouette cut, glitter,  copics, and pop-ups
