ANYTHING! but a Card on a Monday at Bugaboo Stamps

I am so sorry that this post is a little late but I have had my computer switched off and unplugged due to the ongoing and severe electrical storms this afternoon.  I can still hear the thunder in the distance and every so often a flash of lightning, so I cam doing to make this a very very quick post!

On a Monday at Bugaboo Stamps 'Catch the Bug' blog we get to show you how wonderful Bugaboo images are on everything, not only on cards.

I used "Kitchen Jar" on my recipe card - I am sharing with you my Christmas Fruit Mincemeat recipe:

usually I colour the jar so that it is transparent, but for this I used traditional Christmas colours, from my collection of Spectrum Noir markers.  Here is a closer look at the image:
 Click HERE to link to the Catch the Bug log where you can see another awesome project, other than a card, made with a Bugaboo image.

ps : It's not too late to make yours now, I only make it in the first week of November and then make my Christmas mine pies (and a tart) in the third week of December.
