Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #212 Sponsor Bugaboo Stamps

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday and another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Wow what a week, you can tell it's winter here in New Zealand.  We've had a lot of rain, hail and winds and in the mountain ranges and parts of the South Island large snow falls.  I didn't realise it was that bad until I saw it on the late news last night.  Thank goodness the shortest day has past and now we're on the up would slopes to Spring.  I was really excited this morning checking out other challenge sites in blogland and found that I won a prize last week over at Love To Create and I was also in the Top 5 in the All Sorts Challenge for my Blue & White China paper pieced Tea Cups.  This weeks card remind's me of those wonderful warm spring days we get.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards, wonderful work ladies.  There are so many great new digital images your using and interesting design papers.  On to this weeks sketch by our own wonderful Sally Dube.

Sketch #212
This sketch isn't hard just remember the shape is an oval and there are two half ovals behind the oval.  
This week the sketch is Easy, Medium and Hard.

Here's my card using our sponsor Bugaboo and the image is 
Flower Girl Pansy 

This week our wonderful sponsor is 
Jodie Mackrell the owner of 
Bugaboo Stamps.

Kathie, love your bright colored card with all those gorgeous flowers. That is a fun image from Bugaboo (I have many images cause I adore them). That floral paper is beautiful to match. We had a down pour of rain and streets were flooding this AM. We were getting between 2-4 inches of rain today and have been getting rain daily for the past several. The temps are around 80 with lots of humidity. We are all getting hit with YUK weather this week. Hang in there- and I hope I won't float await.
