The Shabby Girls are pleased to welcome our sponsor - 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 is my very first challenge entry on your blog ever.
Must say I'm pretty excited.
And I absolutely love the name of your blog. Every time I read it, it takes me back to England in the victorian time with the beautiful chandeliers, dresses, poch people in the tea parlors.
Oh yes, I am a romanticus LOL
Good luck to all the other contesters, lots of greetings from Veerle x
