It's Bugaboo's Birthday Blog Hop!




Whoo Hoo! It's here! Its finally here! It's  our Birthday Blog Hop at Catch The Bug! If you haven't heard, we're celebrating Bugaboo Stamps third birthday, all week long, starting today, with a blog hop! Then, starting tomorrow, we have daily challenges for you to play along in, for chances win great prizes! Of course, there are fabulous prizes up for grabs, too, just for hopping along with us, this week, in today's hop!

So, what are you waiting for, start hopping!  You should have came here from Melissa's Blog.  if you didn't, never fear, you can start at the beginning, by heading over to Jodie's Blog, to get the ball rolling. Be sure you leave a comment on each and every stop along the way, to be eligible for all the fabulous prizes.  Each blog stop is giving away the image they used on their blog hop projects, plus there are other prizes up for grabs! You don't want to miss out on your chance to win, so be sure you comment on each and every stop!

Once you've left some love here, head over to Sandye's Blog, for your next stop, and check out the fabulous  birthday project she has to show you.  She is one talented lady and you will love what she has to show you!

Now, let me tell you about my project for today.  I went for the monochrome look. The cardstock is a gorgeous purple shimmer cardstock, new to my stash.  I used the image Roses Block, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The papers, Digi papers - polka dot flowers, are also from Bugaboo Stamps. I used three small purple buttons that I recycled from an old shirt I threw away, to embellish my card.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You, and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.
