Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: 
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 stamps at Totally Stampalicious
And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

This week's winner will receive this great prize...
It will be hard to choose from 
Jodi's fab images.

You will need a sketch to follow 
& it's time to re-visit one of Arlana's 
past sketches.....

Be sure to check out the DT's card's, they have created some stunning cards
with their Bugaboo Images.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes last week,
I had a lovely day & i'm now the proud owner
of a Kindle :)
