Christmas in July Fun at Catch-The-Bug (Blog Hop)

Welcome to day one of our Christmas In July Celebration here at Catch-The-Bug.  There are lots of fun challenges going on all week so make sure you check in each day to see what is up.  Today we are starting with a Blog Hop-  If you came here via Sandye's blog than you are on the right track-if not, head back to the beginning and start again.  Leave some love along the way and you will have the chance of winning the image that DT member used on their card. Each DT member will pick one commenter from their blog to win the image they used.  For my card I am using Stocking Santa- HoHoHo.  I colored with copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.  Our challenge for today is to "Show us your Santa", make a card with a santa on it!  Prizes? Yes, of course there are prizes!
