Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch #005 Our Sponsor is Bugaboo.

Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Oh where has my week gone to, I feel that I've been busy all week and achieved nothing.  Well that's a little understated I did get Ryan back off to boarding school on Monday so now it time for some serious housework and I may have a little time for myself and able to do a little crafting as well as office work for my husband.

To any of my kiwi followers happy Waitangi Day for tomorrow.

Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards great work ladies and it was so lovely to see what sketches you chose and all you wonderful paper piecing how creative was that?

This week we have another wonderful sketch from Sally which is 

Sketch #005

Here's my card using Life in Colour by Bugaboo Stamps.

I just adore Peacock feathers to look at I can't touch them as I hate touching feathers.  I don't have Peacock feathers in our home as they are meant to being bad luck!!!

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


Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 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 work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seiously snarky to sugar 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 at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.

Our lucky winner will receive

Kathie, your card is gorgeous. I can't even begin to tell you how many memories came back to me when I saw your card. We had several peacocks on our farm when we were growing up. I alwasy loved to watch the males as they spread their features. It was so gorgeous. Thanks for bring back some wonderful memories for me.
Hugs, Nancy

I am like Joanna and Lisa Lynn. I had no idea that Jodie had these Beautiful Blocks until I saw yours and one of our players. You created such a lovely card and did some awesome coloring of the peacock feathers. I love peacocks. We grew up with several on our farm. I was always amazed with their beauty. And your card definitely portrays that beauty!
I have loved creating a few cards again and have also been into a few other crafts and cleaning, of course. Oh by the way, my heart punch is a Martha Stewart punch. Loved your sister's birthday card too. Have a wonderful February!
Hugs, Judi

Gorgeous!! Love your Vibrant colors!! I never knew Peacock feathers brought bad luck... hmmm... When I was a child, there was a Peacock farm down the street from our Beach House. I used to love to ride my bike and just sit and watch waiting for them to spread their feathers... Sweet Memories!!
Blessings to you Kathie!!
