I'm in the mood for LOVE CMM62

 Are you all in the mood for LOVE??? I know I am.

The challenge this week is LOVE themed cards in honor of Valentine's Day. I want to see  cards filled with love and happiness. That means hearts and mushy stuff. LOL. But it could also mean the colors of love, or wedding or anniversary. ANYTHING THAT IS THEMED AROUND LOVE.

Our amazing sponsor this week is BUGABOO STAMPS

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

They will be offering the winner of this challenge  FREE DIGIS

Also we are happy to be introducing our THREE newest DT members. They are so talented and I know that they will bring you tons of  inspiration.
