MIM#154 Father's Day is coming up with Bugaboo

Well, it's Monday once more and time for a new linky party at Make It Monday. I hope your weekend was an enjoyable one. It's been quite cold, wet and windy here in Adelaide. The craft group I go to was cancelled on Saturday so a friend and I went to a craft shop instead. We got down there and found they didn't open till 11 a.m. so sat in the car in the warmth for 30 mins until they did. We stopped at a bakery on the way home and had a delicious pasty. They are one of the top manufacturing bakeries here and run a 24 hour cafe on their premises that is always busy. My youngest son has often told me he is going to meet friends in the early hours of the morning at Villi's, LOL.
I managed to get to church for the first time since before we went to Vietnam. Didn't get there in time to join the choir though as I didn't sleep well the night before due to my back still being a problem on and off and we were running late.
Okay enough chatter and onto the new linky party and I want to share my DT card with you as well.
Congrats go to Ziggy as our featured artist this week and also to Kim as the winning commenter. We had lots of wonderful entries to visit and I enjoyed seeing lots of different cards. I hope you managed to pop into some of the other entrants blogs and leave some comments. Don't forget we too on the DT love to hear from you so if your popping in, please leave us a comment.
This week we are being sponsored by a favourite digi maker, the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps. They are offering the winner a wonderful prize of 7 single digis!!!
So.... onto my card. I chose this image as it will be Father's Day coming up in a few weeks and this image looks just right although a friend of mine said if any of my kids wanted to give it to Dad I would have to draw a beard on him, LOL. I think I will give it to my grandchildren and they can give it to their Dad instead!
