Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #160

Stella "Another Drink"

Welcome everyone here it is another wonderful Wednesday and my boys are home for their 3 week school holiday break.  It's so nice having them home and being able to do things together.

Today is my Anniversary with Sweet Sketch Wednesday, I've been on the design team for 2 years this week and the funny part about it is, is that BUGABOO DIGI STAMPS were our sponsor on my first week on the design team.

Sketch #56 for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 
30th June 2010
Here is my card I made for Sketch # 56 on Wednesday 30th June 2010.  I had been entering into SSW each week for some time and I was so excited and proud that I had been chosen for this amazing Design Team and we couldn't do it without Arlana,  Nancy and Judi you are all such amazing sisters and thanks so much for including me into your great team.

Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards, what wonderful work ladies, so many great images, colours, design papers and embellishments.

This week we have another wonderful sketch by Arlana and I know you'll love this one as much as I did.

Sketch #160 

 Here's my card using Stella and Another Drink.
Don't you just love this image.  I had so much fun making my card.  My brother asked me to make a card for a 70th birthday party him and his wife are going too.  I've never met the lady so I'm unsure if she may take offence at this image.  She's a friend of my brother so I feel that she'll have a 
sense of humour just like him.  

This week our sponsor is 

Here's a note from Jodie the owner of 

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. TodayBugaboo 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.

You can catch the Bug here:

The winner of this weeks challenge will win

Wouldn't that be great I wouldn't know what images to choose as there are just so many images to choose from as I just adore her images.  Have fun creating and I can't wait to see your creations.

Ohhh Kathie, Happy anniversary. You are an amazing lady!! We love having you on the Design Team. You card is stunning. I love how you wove the ribbon through the nestie. The touch of gold woven through it is gorgeous too. Your papers are soo beautiful. I really love them.
Yes, it was actually Erika's daughter's b-day on Sunday. They celebrated on Saturday. She was so excited to be 4. She is really a cute little girl. The other card is for my grand daughter who lives in New York.
Enjoy having your boys home. That is wonderful to be able to spend time with them.
