Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! If your taste runs to rubber, you can find Bugaboo Stamps  at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Two of the Bugaboo Stamps team have kindly made cards for this challenge:

Thank you both for your beautiful creations - please pop along to their blogs and leave them a comment.

I made two cards for this challenge - the first one uses a lovely digi supplied by Bugaboo Stamps called 'angel big star' - you can read about it here on my regular crafting blog, My Crafty Outlook, and see the other challenges that I entered - I actually showed this card yesterday because I wanted to acknowledge the sketch I used and the challenge for it was closing before my own CHNC challenge 59 was being posted:

My second card, uses the Angel word Bugaboo stamp - you can read more about this card here:

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please feature an angel or a fairy.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday17 February. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on 18 February.

Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.
