Pile It On #18 - Mothers Day...But...No Flowers!

With Mothers Day just around the corner we here at Pile It On thought we'd give you an easy challenge.....but then thought better of it! Ha! Yes we want to see your Mothers Day cards but we have a little twist for you, NO FLOWERS! This means No Flowers in the image, on the paper, on the ribbon, as an embellishment, embossed, any flowers at all and it won't count! But we know how talented you are so that won't really be a problem will it?

This week we have a fabulous sponsor and that 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.

And they have a fabulous prize for our winner of 7 digis from their store!

Now it's time for a little inspiration and you will see that this is an easy challenge afterall (or anyway our team made it look super easy!). And also for your further enjoyment we have a card from the Bugaboo Stamps team:
