A Bumper Batch of Bugaboo!

Hello and the warmest of welcomes to our latest challenge here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

It's Anne here in the UK as your hostess this week and I am going to start with a polite reminder.

Some of you always follow all of our rules and we are very grateful to those of you that do, but some of you don't do all that we ask of you so therefore we can't include you in the picks for the prize as that wouldn't be fair on those that do. 

So please

  • Leave us a comment in the comments section at the end of this post
  • Include a copy of our sketch in your post
  • Add a link back to our blog
and then you will have a chance to win our prize. To check out the full list please click on the tab at the top of the page.

Thank you

So now onto this weeks challenge where we are sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo

Bugaboo Stamps

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 seiously 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.

Challenge Blog:

Prize:  4 Free Images

We all love to create with Jodis images, she really does have such a diverse collection of images and I think that our design team have done them proud this week

So here is Sketch no 116 created by our Kathie

Firstly it's Linda,

Sketch #115 with DigiStamp Boutique

Good morning everyone and welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
It's Kathie here from Auckland New Zealand.  I'm back after 4 and 1/2 months recuperating after breaking my ankle and having surgery and a  plate inserted and 13 screws in my leg and ankle and I'm now learning to walk again, breaking both the Tibia and Fibula bones.  It's lovely to be back especially creating cards, as I couldn't tackle the stairs to my craft room up until recently.

Well it's the beginning of Winter here in New Zealand and two weeks ago we had visitors from Australia, she showed my this lovely photo and I wondered where she had taken it, your driveway she said.  Doesn't it show you how we take things for granted sometimes, and now with what I've been through it's taught me to take one day at a time and to enjoy our lives.

We have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us this fortnight.  I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  She has so many wonderful images to choose from.  I encourage you to check out her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 
This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  Yippee!

Are you ready to see this week's sketch.  Here it is…
Designed by our very own Anne.

Sketch #115

Using Baby Giraffe   

Using Mac

I hope many of you will play along with us this challenge. The rules for playing along can be found by clicking the CHALLENGE RULES tab at the top of the page.

Please remember to comment on this post to be eligible to win.

Thanks so much for visiting us and joining in the fun!
