Bugaboo's Gus - MIM DT card

Another week has flown by and we are in the second month of winter. Looking forward to warmer days.
Today's post brings us to another fab linky party over at Make It Monday.
I have been busy racking this poor old brain to come up with something for this week. I decided to make a stair step card. - I am still a CAS girl at heart, so not a lot of embellies, but, LOL, just enough to give it a bit of interest (for me anyway)

  4. Love your step card Sandy, Such a fun image and sentiment..
    Gorgeous Pick of the week too...

  5. Nearly becoming a Gus figure, he seems to be happy,good colours and style..

  6. Hi Sandy :)
    What can I say? Gus just cracked me up on his little bike. You step card was the perfect choice for this image, really did give the image so much more depth and 'play area.' The number paper was an excellent idea. Not sure if it depicts the age of the recipient or Gus himself? LOL! Oh may we all be young at heart.
    Your POTW....That just blows my mind. It would take me years, plus a crew of SU demonstrators working with me to make something that pretty. Great choice.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. Wow....Sandy, this card is fantastic! Love the beautiful layers and bright color scheme.... :)

  8. Fantastic card sandy and such great fun. Love the image and the sentiment
