Anything But a Card at Catch the Bug Blog

 Hello and Happy Monday!  If you celebrated Thanksgiving last week, I hope you had an enjoyable time with lots of love, laughter and good food! 

 Today on the Catch the Bug Challenge  Blog, it's Anything But A Card Monday.  The design team shares projects with the hope of inspiring you to create something other than a card with Bugaboo images.  For my project today, I used the Gingerbread Christmas Pocket digital image to create a Post-It Note Pad holder.

This is a design inspired by several I saw on Pinterest; it's an Easel Design and it's basically an Easel Card with a note pad adhered to the bottom, very easy to make and very cute.  Would make a great gift and the image is just too stinkin' cute!  

The designer papers are from the Echo Park "A Gingerbread Christmas" 6x6 paper pad and I added some Nuvo Crystal drops in the colors Red and Green for sparkly accents.

Please stop by the blog and see what my team mates created; you may be inspired to create something other than a card.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
