Make It Monday #71 with Bugaboo Stamps

Hi, nice to see you here again.

I'm kind of 50/50 with my New Year's resolutions, how about you? So far I am on track with my goal to exercise and lose weight this year but as far as my posting more regularly on my blog.............not so good, lol.

Still it's early days yet, there is still hope.

The weather has been brilliant (quite unusual for us this time of year) and I have been spending loads of time with the boys in pool and not so much time creating. I did get to make a quick card for this week's Make It Monday linky party though.

I have to admit to being quite excited about the new sponsor we have this week. We are lucky enough to have BUGABOO STAMPS sponsoring us!!

Bugaboo Stamps is one of the most recognisable names in digi stamps and I had so much fun using this fun image called "Gus Birthday Optional" for my card.

This is my first attempt at a step card.

Took me a few goes to figure it out (still not sure I got it completely right). Of course I could have googled for a tutorial, but where's the fun in that, lol.

Just love the sentiment, dont you? This is so perfect for my Dad.
