Catch The Bug CIJ Challenge DAY ONE

I'm a little bit late starting on this but I hope to manage all 7 challenges - I am currently on holiday in Australia and Christmas in July is a thing here: That's me in Bay Street, North Brighton yesterday!

Anyway this is the DAY ONE Challenge:

Here is my card:

I used the sketch from Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge - rotated through 90 deg. - and I will link my card to that.


  1. White Card Blank.
  2. Layers of red and pink card from a 6 x 6 paper pad of Smooth Card Stock from The Paper Mill.
  3. Ribbon and gems attached to the small strip of pink card on the right.
  4. Image Make it Snappy Ho Ho Ho blocks printed on parchment, coloured with real brush pens and cut out.
  5. Sticker sentiments from a Festive foil statement sticker book from The Craft Stall.

Happy Crafting!


  1. I hope you are having a great holiday, Susan! How fun to be in Australia! And to think they celebrate CIJ! I love your card. I don't think I've seen this image before, but I want it, LOL. I also liked how you used the Outlawz sketch. Really great! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Christmas in July at Catch the Bug. Julie O, Bugaboo Stamps DT member
