MY NEW TOYS and My #8 Christmas card in July, "Santa with Bauble" Card (Bugaboo Freebie Image)

Hallo my Blogland friends....I have a bit secret story.... last 22.04.2015 I see at Petra's Blog (Heller Little=H3) that she will sell her BIG SHOT. It was a surprise for me and I was answering as soon as I could do on her post HERE.  She sold it only for 50 EURO...can you imagine?????(how happy I was???)....and I got that Bigshot a week after I send her the payment. (she lives in Germany). I still keep it secret and hiding in my cupboard.....I dont want my hubby know about it LOL......cause he always said ooh dont buy cuttlebug it is expensive and you need then the embossing template etc...(he is not agree if I buy that expensive tools)

Petra sent a week after, not only the Big Shot but some extra for my frist trial and error :) Dear Petra, many many thanks for all the EXTRA you sent me with that BIG SHOT, you are really very kind to me...I love them all :)

*****Story continue....last day I used it and I forgot to put back in my cupboard..(my hubby just got his new coffee machine at that day)...also he has a good mood and smile..."hmmmmm what is this, Monika?" I told him the story and told I bought with a lower prize, he was not giving a bad reaction and smile and looking how that machine can produce Cut Out and Embossed Paper :) 

...also now OFFICIAL, I want to tell you my friends that 


but I still have less folder...and still not so often using it :)  



Now about my card I made today, I want to continue make my christmas card for Catch The Bug Challenge Christmas in July, it is now day 7, this time the theme is Freebie Friday/Pick a Present

I was waiting for this lovely Rudolph Image (the Freebie from Friday from Bugaboo)

but I guess It was a technical probleme :)  then I think, I dont want to loose my time to make another (my last one) Christmas Card in July for Catch The Bug Challenge, also I choose the Freebie from last week and here is my card :) .

I choose the Present: RIBBON - IMAGE - STITCHING

Just a simple card, because it was my failure to print the Image too small also I try to make this image look bigger..."how to do?" I choose red card stock, red gingham paper and green dots paper. I combine the main image with other papers and tied it with a gold ribbon to looks like a paintchip. I stitching also the white cardbase.

Challenge for my card are:
