Good morning and welcome to my blog.  At the end of the week I'll have both my boys home for a school holiday break for two weeks.  I'm so looking forward to having some family time together.

I just love Bugaboo Digi Stamp's there's something for everyone just so much to choose from.

Bugaboo Stamps


Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 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 work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seiously snarky to sugar 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 at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.

LOVE your paper choices this week Kathie! This happy card just made me smile as soon as I saw it. Enjoy your boys home visit. In answer to your question, no, my boys have been out of school for a month already. We have the rest of this month and then they head back the 2nd week in August. Crazy. Caleb is already counting down with a frown on his face about how he only has 6 weeks off left!!!

Hello Kathie,
It's always nice to hear from you! Your Flower Bird is so lovely this week! I love the vibrant colors. I have this image but have not colored it up yet! How fun...we both used the same picot circle for our image! The black accents on your card are very striking! What a cute ticket sentiment too! I have been organizing all my sentiments so I can have a quick reference! Have a great week with your boys! Nice for the boys to have a break from school!
Hugs, Judi
