First Valentine

Hello Everyone,

It is Monday morning..and not raining.......at the moment. Our holiday visitors to the Bay have moved on as the weather has been sooo  bad...only to go home to the same sort of stuff as the whole country has been downpoured on....we have been forcasted with more of the same...actually weather warnings have been issued for the East coast, so thats something to look forward too for the middle of summer...

.but what I am looking forward to is..... today is a new start for MAKE IT MONDAY

Great projects last week, loved looking at all the lovely work you all do...


We are very excited to have a new sponsor Bugaboo Stamps! Everyone loves these fun and sweet digis! Here's little bit about them...


Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Our links are:

Catch the bug Challenge blog: http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/



Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!


And this week we have two Bugaboo designers join us to show off their fabulous makes!

Two gorgeous cards, so cute......and talking of cute, I was given an image to play with from Bugaboo and here she is...


Big Bow Sitter...



Close up of image, sitting on her brick wall, and this the last peice of this paper in my scrap box, why oh why, didn't I scan it onto my computer.

Coloured with pencils and a vellum flower border added to the bottom, and stickers!!!...little hearts.
The sentiment is a chipboard  sticker, bought 3 sheets of them as they are pretty, quick, glittery, and I just plain liked them....


WOW!! Blogger is throwing these pictures up so quick today, the other few days it has been so slow..

I picked a favourite this week.....#169 Irene...I took a real shine to IRENES   card...


Love these wee hedgehogs.....


There you are...MAKE IT MONDAY LINKY PARTY HAS OPENED  lets see those paper projects, old or new, we dont mind...just link up and play....

Have a great evening/day, thanks for all your lovely comments and will see you tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy

Sorry to hear your weather has been so awful, we have been having a very unusual wet season in that it hasn't really rained yet (let's hope I haven't jinxed it now, lol).

The poor weather has obviously been conducive you to getting some good crafting done as you have turned out a really adorable card this week. Isn't she just the sweetest.

Great pick too for your favourite this week. I'm with you, I just love these cute little Hedgehogs, never seen one in real life, I must ask someone if they are furry or prickly.

Michelle :o)
