A Two Part Post - Lots To Read

I have a couple of cards to share today and a LOT of exciting Bugaboo news to share.

Firstly, here are my entries for the challenge over at Passion For Papertrey. I'm still a bit limited in my PTI creations but hope to rectify that soon.

The theme is to CASE a DT Member. I chose to CASE this card bi Niki Estes:

I originally tried to create the red one on Kraft card but the colour difference between the ink on kraft and the ribbon was too much so I changed the backing to cream instead. I also left out the flower as I had a bow instead. The sentiments are both curvy and look handwritten. Mine is from the Christmas set though but I think I need the set Niki has used too now!

Here's a close up of the Chocolate Chip version. I used the flower background from the Tin Types set:

And the Real Red version. Again, the stamp is from the Tin Types set but I have doubled up the crosses to create a fuller and bolder pattern:

Hope you like them. I'm going to enter them into the following challenges too:
One Stitch at a Time - Christmas Theme
2 Sisters - No Designer Paper
No Time To Stamp - CAS Christmas


OK, second lot of news. I'll start with the most exciting. BUGABOO ARE HAVING A NEW DESIGN TEAM CALL. Are you interested in joining a fantastic team and getting to play with digi images before they are released and help spread the word for Bugaboo? If the answer is yes, then head on over to CATCH THE BUG for all the details. It really is a great company to work for.

During November, there'll also be a 50% Off Sale. That's right, ALL Bugaboo images will be half price for the entire month. Early Christmas presents anyone???

And tomorrow will be a new Monthly Club Release too. Today is the last day to get the October one so hurry over to the SHOP now. Here's a peek at the next set:

I want those Robins!!
