MIM#136 - Collecting Wrinkles

Hi, it's been a while since my last post as I have the Flu and not felt up to much cardmaking. (Still not 100% and have a big event to go to on Saturday, so I'm hoping to be better by then.)
I sat down late yesterday to make this one for the start of the new linky party at Make It Monday today.
Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps and I chose Gus to feature on my card.
We have a 86th birthday party coming up soon so I think this card will be going to a family friend named Don. I think he would enjoy the humour.
Congrats to our featured artist Laney and also to Wedgie as the winning commenter.

So here's what I made.....

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!
Now onto my   POTW 
I chose this delightful card by Barbara from Giltterarti.......Card Creations  
Loved the gorgeous flowers on this one. Pop in and see the other colour combo she used on her second card too.

So that's if from me, I'm turning over the linky party to your creativeness. Looking forward to a bumper crop of lovely entries.
