Julie's 02-17-13

We are lucky to have our challenge sponsored by Bugaboo

Here is a little information on Bugaboo's History:

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 paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations.

That was three 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 at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps  DT  for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

The winner of our challenge will receive:

Top Picks - Show us your Heart - Love is in the Air

Hi Everyone, thanks to all the participants of the Show us your Heart challenge. What great entries this week. It was great to see all the different Ideas that came from the one theme. Here are our favorites for this week:


I totally fell in love with Lisa's card when I saw it! I ADORE my puppies ( well, they are 6 years old, but still my babies) and I, too, give them Valentines! I love the heart shapes she has used and the adorable Puppy Love image! Just too cute to resist! Thanks so much for joining us this week, Lisa!

I just love Andy's Sexy Cupid card he made for his wife.  Great combination of colours, patterns and textures.  Andy's wife must have been very touched to receive such a special card.


It was difficult to pick a favorite for this week with all the beautiful cards submitted.  I have decided my top pick this week is #76 Bunny, with her beautiful White on White card and a touch of red.  I love the layers of white, the pearls and the ribbon to finish it off.  It has an elegant look to it.  

Mom and Parker

I've picked Mom and Parker's cards this week, Yeah a mom and her son made up these cards to give to Parker's class for valentines. They are just so sweet and include a treat which is the best for sure. but the design was so well thought out as well, the girly eyelashes and hearts for the girls and just the single eye, and different mouth for the guys. then the dots as the background for these cute robots, what's not to love. To top it off it was taking a crafting and showing our children the love of it. Great job, thanks for joining us this week at Come and Get It.


This week I've chosen #112, Irit as my Top Pick......
Fabulous work on altering your Heart and filling in the small spaces with a wonderful theme for Valentine's Day!  Beautiful Heart Irit I know it took a lot of time and thought for your project and it turn out so adorable! Anyone would love to have it on their wall!!   

Lily Pink Scraps

Fabulous entries this week and my top pick I have chosen Dawn's card.
Love the unique design of your card Dawn.
Awesome work.
