MIM#163 - Framed with Bugaboo

It's Monday which means time for a new linky party to start at Make It Monday. I hope you all had an enjoyable break from work and a catch up with family and friends. We enjoyed having our 3 grandchildren staying with us for a couple of nights. The middle one, Layla, is my little cardmaker and after Mum dropped them off Friday late afternoon, the first words out of her mouth were " I want to make a card, Mama"
I found some images from free colouring pages on the net and she made two cards on Saturday! The oldest granddaughter occasionally colours an image but she is happy to take them home to cut out and stick on something. We found a picture of "Dasher" (not the reindeer!) that she liked and that has gone home with her to cut out.  Little Isaac is just happy to play with the toy cars, the duplo and his toy lawnmower!
Our youngest son has decided to move back home for a while to try and save a bit more money. His wife of 6 months is still stuck in Vietnam waiting for her spousal visa to be approved. He has organised tickets to go over there in January and hopes she will be able to come back with him then. It's been a hard time on them both. He hasn't seen her now for 4 months. It's his 24th birthday today, so happy birthday, Laurie.
Well on to the linky party. Congratulations to Jean as our featured artist and to Trace as the winning commenter. Enjoy your prize.
Our sponsor this week is the very creative Bugaboo Stamps.
Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!

We are looking forward to checking out all of your fabulous papercraft creations. Don't forget, to be in the running for the wonderful prize from Bugaboo this week you need to do a bit of hopping to some of the other entries blogs and leave them a comment.
