Make It Monday sponsored by Bugaboos!

Okay, so first things, first - did I get my Lindt egg from the hubster?  NO!!  But instead he got a real egg, emptied it and filled it with dark and white chocolate!!  He made one for each of my immediate family too - that's 9!!  A whole solid choccie egg, not a hollow one - what a sweetie!

Anyhoo, it's time for a new linky party over at Make It Monday and today we are being sponsored by the fun lovin' Bugaboo Stamps!  So here is my card using Bobblehead Zoo Monkey...





C'mon, tell me this little fella didn't put a smile on your face?!!  I kept smiling when I was making this card - he is just tooo darn cute!!  So, I matched him up with papers from My Minds Eye Just The Girls and the sentiment is from The Flipflop set by Ladybug Crafts Ink.  For the dies, I used My Favorite Things cloud dies and a Quickutz branch die.

So this week the lovely Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!  I wish I could win it because there are a whole load of bobbleheads to collect!



So onto my pick of the week by the lovely Jan of She's Gone Digital....

Created by Jan of She's Gone Digital

The simplicity of the card really showcases Jan's gorgeous colouring of this beautiful image - I love it!  Thx for sharing with us  Jan!

Right, I'm outta here!  Back later with my Pollycrafts Monday post - toodle-oo!




I am entering my monkey card into the following challenges:

I love this - and and I know all too well what you mean about too much time on Pinterest.
I actually whipped up a Pinterest card no too long ago using a new Whimsie Doodle image - it's posted on my 'my creations' board on pinterest.
Happy Pinning!
