Bugaboo Christmas in July


It's Christmas in July time at Bugaboo stamps. The prizes are wonderful, so we hope you will join the fun and craft with us all week. We kick things off today with a Show us Your Santa blog hop.

Now hop over to Laurie Clout's blog and see what she created for today. Make sure to stop by each day to the Catch the Bug blog and play along with the challenges. You will have many chances to win Bugaboo images and you will get ahead on your holiday cards, Win-Win!

Cute & whimsy Santa Christmas card. Does make me think of the tropics. Summer here in Central TX is hot. Forecast for this weekend is triple digits of 100. We have had snow here. Once on Christmas Eve & as late as Valentine's Day.
