Swimming By...

Welcome back to Day 3 of our Under the Sea birthday celebration at Catch the Bug. Today it's a color challenge...and what great colors they are too!! Very much it makes me think of the ocean. 

Mondays at Catch the Bug usually mean Anything But a Card. I found a video on You Tube for this Kisses Gift Card Holder and decided to give it a try. It was easy to do, and that's coming from someone who doesn't like to make anything but a card!! My image is from the sweet Bugaboo Mini Set AKV Under the Sea. Now I hope you can join us for our color challenge today (you're allowed to make a card!!) at Catch the Bug.

How fun, I found this Bugaboo image, already colored, on my very messy desk and decided to put it on a card! I pulled out some scraps of pattern paper too in my forever hope of clearing 'em out!! I don't think that will ever happen though. This sweet cowgirl from Bugaboo is now retired, having been part of the AKV (A Kids View) collection. Head on over to Catch the Bug to see what other members of the DT created using oldie but goodie Bugaboo images.

Only 2 more days until Bugaboo's Under the Sea Birthday Bash begins!! Be there for some wonderful prizes!!
