MIM #75 with Bugaboo Stamps

Hi, how are you? Did you have a good weekend?

Ours was quiet, wet and windy.  We managed to get a few quick swims in the pool between downpours though. I see that we had our first Cyclone for the season too over the weekend, thankfully it was heading out to sea!

I had a request from a lady I work with for some cards without sentiments so I have been working on those and will hopefully share them with you over the coming days.

Today though  I am here to remind you that it is linky party time again over at Make It Monday.

Over 200 entries linked up again last week!!

Did you know you can go back and view all the entries for previous weeks as you scroll back through the MIM blog? So if  you are looking to entice your Mojo back from where ever it has decided to vacation off to then MIM is a brilliant place to start. There is an endless supply of inspiration with a variety of styles and projects to get you out of your crafting rut.

This week I have created a card using a wonderful image from our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps, called  Bobblehead Cow.


I love this sweet little cow!! 

I knew what I wanted to create as soon as I saw this image and set about trying to create the mulitple images in paint.net but had heaps of trouble as it's been so long since I have used the program I have completely forgotten how to merge images.

So I settled on just printing two of them  and then added a third one to the center.


Sentiment is computer generated.

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:




We are very excited to have again one of newer sponsors Bugaboo Stamps!  Everyone loves these fun and sweet digis!
