Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #132 -51

Sponsor Bugaboo
Gust's Birthday Rocking Chair

Well today is Thursday here in New Zealand, I am behind by a day as I have just finished my final dental surgery on my mouth and I completely loose a day.  This morning I had to pick Liam up from boarding school and attend his prize giving and now my boys are on their summer vacation for 7 weeks.
  Congratulations to our winner this week and our top 3 awesome work.
It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday time and this week Arlana has another wonderful oldie but a goodie.  I never entered Sketch #51 for some reason so I can't show you my blast from the past.

Sketch #132-51 

I've made this card for my eldest brothers 70 th Birthday.

This week our wonderful sponsor is Jodie from Bugaboo stamps and here's a little Bio on Jodie in case you've never heard of Bugaboo Images.


Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About 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.

Kathie this is an awesome card! The papers are gorgeous and I love those gold sparkly balloon embellishments. Love how you add crystal lacquer to the eyeglasses - makes it even more comical an image! Truly fabulous - I love what you create!
