Birthday Happiness!

Seems like our family has so many summer birthdays so I thought a birthday card was in the makings for this week!  This sweet image is from Bugaboo Stamps called Edward Elephant-Present.  You can find him here.  I love the fun sketch this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  I used the Martha Stewart Balloon punch and added some birthday embellishments on top of them and added the colored floss for the balloon string.  I also added the pen stitching around the image!

We would love to have you play along at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
This is the sketch we are using this week!
Be sure to follow the rules at SSW2.

As you might guess, Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week.  They are offering 
7 free digis 
to the 
Grand Prize Winner 
at SSW2! 
How sweet it is!

Here is a little about Bugaboo!

Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 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 work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seriously snarky to sugar 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 Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.
