Happy 4th Birthday Bugaboo

It's a very special day, Bugaboo is turning 4! We are celebrating in a big way (all week actually)! You will want to stop over to the Catch the Bug Blog for all of the details. 

Today we are having our blog hop and first challenge of the week. Make sure and play along, there are amazing prizes to be won.

If you arrived here from Julie's blog you are in the right spot, if you just happened upon my blog, start at the beginning on Catch the Bug, so you won't miss anything.


For today the challenge is a bingo challenge. Create a birthday card or project using this bingo board:


Here is my card using Birthday Monkey Cake. Isn't he cute? You could win this image, simply leave a comment on my blog. In fact, as you hop make sure to comment on every blog, each designer is giving away the image they used today to one lucky commenter. I got my bingo on the diagonal using a Bugaboo image, free space and ribbon. Plenty of options to make it fun to play along. 


Your next stop is Laurie's blog.

Thanks so much for hopping along today. Hope to see you play along this week, I'm really looking forward to seeing lots of fun birthday cards!

Some challenges I would like to enter:
Card Recipe:
Ink: Printer
Paper: copic xpress, SU Bermuda Bay, PTI Aqua Mist, MME prints
Extras: copics, nesties, stickles, sewing machine, rhinestones, SU ribbon, sakura starrdust pen
