I just LOVE this card~! The Old World Santa and all of the different DP's caught my eye right away! I also love the various greenery and swirls she has used to embellish her card. Great Job, Tracey!

Bugaboo Stamps

Here is a little information on Bugaboo's History:
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 paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was four 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 (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Here are the cards from our lovely designers

Julie using Chubby Santa Tree
