Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #203-44 Sponsor is Bugaboo

Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
This week has flown by so quickly, the boys have been inside on and off because we've had some heavy rain but we'll make the most of these holidays together.  

Congratulations  to our Winner and to our Top 3 cards, awesome work ladies.

This week we have a blast from the past we are featuring a sketch used over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday on 7th April 2010.

Sketch #203-44

 This week I've used a flower block, I wanted to create an affect like a stained glass window.

Here's my blast from the past and entry I put into SSW
long before I was on the design team for April 2010.

This week our sponsor is the wonderful owner and creator of 
Bugaboo Digital images 
Jodie Mackrell

Jodie's Bio

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

Jodie is offering our very lucky winner 

of the winners choice.

How awesome is that Jodie has so many amazing images you'll 

be totally spoilt for choice.

Jodie has a new Friday freebie every week for you to try before

Hi Kathie, I sure love the image you have used this week. I think lavander is both of our favorite colors. The glossy accents really make the flowers come to life. I love th effect that it has given your card. And, the lace trim is gorgeous. I agress with the week flying by. But, I say that every week. I am sure for me it is because of my new job and just the volume of information I am learning. I have been in training all day today and will be again tomorrow. It is all good. I am loving it. But, there is a lot to remember. LOL Have a good week. I have a hard time thinking you are going into your winter and we are going into summer.
Hugs, Nancy

Love the colours you have used and that lace is adorable. Saw your card on Make It Monday and popped over for a closer look.

Lisa Lynn said...

Kathie, your card is gorgeous! I do think you made it look like stained glass by adding the glossy accents. I think it is difficult to find purple paper, but you found a truly unique one. That lace is so delicate and just adds so much.
For my son's cupcakes - yes the frosting stains the teeth blue hehe. I should have taken't a picture of everyone with a blue smile.
