Bugaboo Stella Christmas card


Hello everyone and welcome to the November challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge


Our optional twist this month is Bah Humbug and I had to put my thinking cap on for this one! I went through all my supplies looking for ideas without finding anything, but before giving up on the twist for the first time this year, I had a browse through a box of images that I had leftover from previous projects and came across this image of Bugaboo's Stella looking suitably grumpy!


I quickly coloured the image with Copic markers, stamped a rug and added the sentiment which was embossed in white. I glazed Stella's glasses and the baubles on the tree with a glaze pen and they look quite nice in person, but don't show up in the photos,


I really needed a quick card this time because I've not been feeling very creative. The return of my cough added to a sore throat leads me to think I must be run down as I'm picking things up so easily. I'll have to look for a pick me up remedy! What's your recommendation for one?

I hope you are all keeping well and fighting off the bugs. Only one more HLS challenge to go before the big day. Yikes - that is scary!!!

I'd like to play along at




Thanks for stopping by

  8. Stella is always perfect for a bah humbug or two! Nice card! I'm so sorry you are feeling sickly. When I get that way (and I sort of am now), I don't do just one thing, it's a mix on the idea something will help. And it usually does. I double up on my Metamucil and add a package of Emergen-c Vitamin C powder to it. Everything begins in your gut, and the gut loves C. The biggest thing I do is try to sleep it off. Extra rest. Also,plenty of hot tea and water. I pretty much flood my system with C, though, at least for a few days. It works more often than not. They say when you get a cold to take zinc, too. Hope you feel better! xoxo

  9. OMGosh, I so love Stella! This card is fabulous and perfect for the challenge with a twist. Love, love, love! I am with you in that I have a sinus infection that just won't let go of me. Sore throat from time to time and headaches, stuffy nose, etc...I don't know what a pick me up should be but if you figure it out, please let me know too as I could use one! Hugs, Brenda
