Happy Birthday Bugaboo!!!


Bugaboo Stamps is turning ONE today!! Can you believe it? My how time flies!! I feel SO OLD!! LOL! So, in honor of this HOPPY occasion (tee-hee!), the Bugaboo Stamps DT is doin' some HOPPIN' of their own with a little birthday blog hop for ya! Boing-boing!!

Now if you've hopped here from jumpin' Jan Hunnicutt's blog, you're hoppin' like a PRO! {{rrrrrib-it!!}} If not, be sure to start back at the beginning HERE so you don't miss a thing.



For my card today I used "HOPPY OCCASIONS", which by the way, you can WIN from me just by leavin' a comment below!!

I printed Hoppy on some Canson Manga Fanboy CS and colored him with my Copics. I cut him out with my Nestabilities and sponged some distress ink around the edges. I tied this gorgeous green saddle stitched ribbon into a cute bubbly bow and finished with a button on top! Now of course, this wouldn't be a birthday if there wasn't any presents right?? Presents, presents?? Did someone say presents?? {ok my ears are all perked up now too!} Oh yeah, Bugaboo Stamps is doin' this celebration up right. They've got TONS of prizes all lined up for this week's events.

Here's how the challenges this week will work:
  • Today's challenge is of course a Birthday Theme!!!! You have one week to participate in the challenge for a chance to win a digi prize pack- 7 free images for 1st place, 4 free images for 2nd place, and 2 free images for 3rd place!!!
Oooooh, but that's not all..... they will also be having daily challenges starting on Monday! Here's the rest of the challenges for the week so you can work on your projects in advance:
  • Monday - Blue & White
  • Tuesday – Bling
  • Wednesday – Sketch

  • Thursday - Birthday
  • Friday - Anything Goes
(You will have one day to complete each challenge and link your project to the Catch the Bug Blog.)

Now about those presents.... here's what's up for grabs:
  • Grand prize winner - 1 FREE set per month for one year, for participating in the blog hop and in all the challenges!
  • 2nd prize winner - 75% off a one time order!
  • Blog Hop Winner - A chance to design a set with the owner!
  • 1 free digital image from each DT member that was used on their blog hop project (You have one week to comment.) **I will choose the winner of my HOPPY OCCASIONS image on Saturday the 22nd and announce it here on my blog**
All winners will also be posted on the Catch the Bug Blog, as well. Be sure to check out the CATCH THE BUG BLOG FOR ALL THE DETAILS!

Okee dokee, that's it from my pad today. Time to hop on over to the talented Jenny Erickson! DON'T FORGET TO COMMENT ON EACH BLOG ALONG THE WAY! Boing - boing!!

  106. I'll quote Elton John here because "You stepped into my life from a bad dream, making the life that I had seem suddenly shiny and new. Oh Jeanie, I'm so in love with you!" ;) In layman's terms it means I was (and am still) so incredibly happy that you joined the Bugaboo Stamps DT because I'm such a fan of your work! Thank you so much for everything you do! MWAH!
