Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #195 Sponsor Bugaboo


Good Wednesday morning everyone and welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday
 This weeks card I'm dedicating and posting to my sister in Australia.  Her husband passed away in the weekend after battling with Cancer for 3 1/2 years now he's at peace and she can take some time out for herself  and have a drink as she too has lung cancer which she is battling.
I do apologies for not getting to your blogs this week with everything that was happening here I just didn't get time.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards, I did see  some of the entries great work ladies.

Another lovely sketch from Sally for you to follow.  This weeks sketch is great it's easy comes together quickly and mine was made from left over scraps from another card which is great especially using those scraps up.

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 Stampsstamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
