MIM #110 - Better get Better

It's Monday, and that means the start of a new linky party at Make It Monday.
Thanks to all of you that make it a great place to visit and see what other people are making.
Congrats go to Karen C  for having your card featured this week and also to  Faye for being the winning commenter.
This week we again have the marvelous Bugaboo Stamps as our Sponsor and I was lucky enough to be able to choose this fab image to play with. She is called Nurse Margaret - as seen on tv and you can find her here.

Here is what I've made with her. I used a template I found a couple of years ago in the Hobby Journaal (Dutch Magazine) for this fab hospital bed. It has another little shaped piece at the back to support the card.

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   atTotally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

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

My POTW is this cute card - Isn't this sweet and made for a special little boy too by Karen over at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles and you can see it and read about it here
