Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #186 Sponsor Bugaboo

"Happy New Year Everyone."

Today is Boxing Day here in New Zealand, it's quite warm and humid and everyone is tired from yesterday.
All that hype for weeks and months before Christmas all that hard work in the kitchen and all the shopping and the day is over so quickly but it was lovely spending time with our families and friends.

Today is Wednesday and Sweet Sketch Wednesday never sleeps or has a break over the festive season we're here for you.  Congratulations to last weeks winner and to our top 3 cards great work ladies and I know entries were down but it's to be expected at this time of year.  This week we have another one of Arlana's wonderful creations.

Sketch # 186 
Sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps

Here's my image using SB Alternative 
Old age isn't too bad if you consider the alternative.
How true is that?

A Little Bit About Our Wonderful Sponsor
Jodie MacKrell The Owner Of
Bugaboo Stamps

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.

Our lucky winner this week will 

How awesome is that, I just adore Bugaboo Stamps as there's an image for everyone for all occasions.  I do have to say that Stella, Guss and JJ would have to be my three favourite characters to work with.

Thank you for posting the sketch on your blog Kathie. I have been checking the SSW blog for a few days and it mentions the sketch but nothing else. It's raining here today so I'll have plenty of time to work on it! Welcome after the heat from the past few days. Hope you have a Happy New Year.
