MIM#175 A Jar of Flowers with Bugaboo

Wow, we've survived the horrible heat wave of last week and the destructive thunderstorm. We have had lots of bushfires in the state with loss of homes and livestock. There are still fires burning here and in two other states. No deaths here in South Australia but interstate there was one death that I know of.  I would like to say a big thankyou to all those that have been out on the front lines of the fires for their continuing work to keep people and property safe and to those who have lost homes and livelihoods I pray that you will get the help you need to get back on your feet.
It's been about 10 degrees cooler over the last two days, still fairly hot but much more manageable.
Now.....onto a new Linky Party at Make It Monday. We had so many wonderful entries last week it was really hard to choose my POTW. Scroll down to check if I picked your project to feature today.
Congratulations to Nancy as the featured artist and to Wendy as the winning commenter. Enjoy!!!
This week our sponsor is Bugaboo. It's always a pleasure to create with these fun images!
I have used Flower Jar to create my card this week.
Here is my card......

White cardstock from stash
DP was from my scrap pile (not sure who the maker was)

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!

It's time for POTW......... my first choice is this gorgeous card from Morgan of Morganised Chaos. Just love this image and the colouring is wonderful. You can find it here on Morgan's blog

 A Little Bird Told Me

For my second choice, I chose this delightful card  from Monica of Simply Monica. Love the beautiful image of the birds in the tree - fabulous colouring!  and those flowers are a wonderful finishing touch. You can find it here on her blog

Time for me to go, we would love to see you entering a papercraft project at Make It Monday this week. Pop in and check out the DT's blogs to see their inspirational cards and to see if you were a POTW choice. 
Also, just to remind you, to be in the running to win the fab prize from Bugaboo this week, all you need to do is pop into some of the other entrant's blogs and leave a comment mentioning you saw them on MIM. The more times you do this, the better your chances of being picked.
