Catch the Bug Christmas in July Day 4 & Double Trouble Challenge #62

Today I'm combining the Catch the Bug Christmas in July Challenge with another of my favorite challenges, Double Trouble.
Catch the Bug has a Bingo Challenge
and Double Trouble is celebrating Christmas in July, with elves and has paired with Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week.  Whew!
My Christmas card has everything on the bingo grid with the exception of distressing, the Bugaboo freebie for today with Deacon the Elf, Friday's freebie. 

The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.
The image was colored with pencils.
Die cuts are by Sizzix (pink and purple circles), La La Land (white glitter stitched circle), and Paper Roses (white glitter sentiment frame).

  1. How cute that you combined the two images. Great coloring and fussy cutting!

  2. Debi your card is adorable. I have to be gross, but the nurse in me thinks it looks like the elf is giving the horse an enema, lol. See how I think. It's hard when you only have so much room. hanks for joining in the Christmas in July BINGO celebration at Catch the Bug, Lisa Lynn DT.
