Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #221-163 Sponsor is Bugaboo

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday.  Yes it is count down for Liam and I as we have 25 days to go until we leave for South American and I have so much to do in that time I don't know whether I'm Arthur or Martha.  Plus I had Liam's birthday yesterday and Father's Day on Sunday, school quiz and auction night Friday night for a fundraiser oh it's all go........so much to do and so little time to do it in.

Today being Wednesday can only mean one thing that it's another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday and thanks so much everyone for all those lovely cards this week, great work.
Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards, lovely work ladies.

This week we have another blast from the past this sketch we used on 18th July 2012.

Sketch #221-63

Here's my card using Miss Muffet from Bugaboo Digital Images

Here's my blast from the past using the same sketch.
This sketch is relatively easy and it's great for using up
those scrap pieces of design paper. 

This week our sponsor is Jodie Mackrell the owner and design of the wonderful Bugaboo images that always make me smile.

I little bit about Jodie Mackrell.

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 paper crafting 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.

This week our lucky winner will 

to the value of $21.00 isn't that a wonderful prize? 

You can check out Bugaboo images here and if you want to join their Catch a bug Challenge.  Every Friday Jodie has a Friday freebie on her blog for you to try before you buy.  These images are awesome so check them out here as there's an image that caters for everyone's taste.

You DO have a lot on your plate this week!! I loved your phrase "Arthur or Martha" ... I've never heard of that. Local phrase is it? Where does it come from.

Your card is lovely. Such pretty colors and colored beautifully!
