CIJ Day 1 at CTB Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Well it's here....Day 1 of the Christmas in July at Catch the Bug and there are lots of prizes and surprises a long the way. Today we start with creating a card or project with using the picture of Santa's workshop. During the celebration we are also going to be honoring Julie Temple our DT member that recently passed away. As I put on my Facebook, with losing my husband, I know that God takes some of the wonderful people too soon, but then they are able to watch over us. I just hope that Julie is able to give me some creative vibes since she was so talented. I realize that I colored my elf to look like her. I also have candy canes which are so sweet like my friend. Also my daughter LOVES them. I would buy boxes of the mini ones and she would pack them as snacks. I think to her they are a food group, lol.

She is so sweet and you have colored her beautifully! Love the fun fold and angled cuts on this slimline card too...I really need to try one of these sometime...beautifully done! Stay healthy, my friend!

PS. I actually had her printed to color; unfortunately work got in the way of fun. I am ready for life to be normal again. With COVID -19 continuing to spike, I am fearful it will not be for a long time.

What a lovely tribute to Julie. I hang candy canes on the tree on Christmas Eve and my son would pinch one every time he passed. Thanks for joining us at The Alphabet Challenge. Love Dawn x
