Christmas In July at Catch the Bug- Day 1

It's Day 1 of our annual Christmas In July week at 
This year we have a Santa's workshop theme.

I made a card to fit this theme  featuring christmas Kidz 01, this cute little elf is hard at work filling Santa's sack!
I printed the image twice and fussy cut the elf, popping him up with foam for a little dimension. 
Papers from stash, a couple of die cuts and some twine to finish.

During this Christmas event we will also be taking the opportunity to honour the memory of  Julie Temple who was a much valued member of the Bugaboo family from  2011 to 2020 .
Here is one of the many beautiful cards Julie designed for Bugaboo.

Hop over to Catch the Bug for more inspiration and full details of how to play along this week- there are so many chances to win some of these fabulous digis so don't miss out!
Thanks for stopping by- I'll be back tomorrow with Day 2's creation!
