It's a Monster of a Day! Freebie Friday at Bugaboo!

It's Fri-Yay!  It's time for a freebie at Bugaboo Stamps!  Today's is extra special because it kicks off Bugaboo Stamps 9th Birthday Celebration!  Nine years of drawing adorable and snarky and beautiful images for all of us to color up.  Can you imagine being consistently creativity for that long?  I. Am. So. Amazed!  Huge congratulations to Jodie for this accomplishment.   Come join the fun all week at Bugaboo Stamps.  You'll find all the festivities on the Catch The Bug Blog, starting with a Monster of a party tomorrow!

But, today!  TODAY there is a FREEEBBBBBBIIIIEEEEEE!  And it's a monster of a cute one!  Here it    issssssssss!

This is Birthday Monster 1, and he's free this week so you can play along in all the challenges with him.  There's also other monster images that are fun and adorable.  When I put "monster" in the search engine in the Bugaboo Store, I even came up with some cute $1 digis, so there is no excuse not to join us this week! (OK, maybe lack of time.)

I colored Birthday Monster 1 with Copic markers, then used papers from the We Are 3 Etsy store to make the card.  The confetti background paper is from the Celebrate paper collection.  The lively strip of paper is from the Cupcake Toppers collection

I am playing along with the sketch at Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge on this card.  Here's the sketch I used:

As you can see, I followed it very closely.  Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring The Outlawz Wednesday Sketches this month (Hurray!), so come play along!  There's great prizes to be won!

Grab today's freebie, then join us at Catch the Bug for a week-long Celebration!  It's going to be great! 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge -- Jan. 9
Polkadoodles -- ATG
Crafting with an Attitude  -- ATG
