Thinking Of You

Good morning followers and welcome to my blog.  This past week has flown by so quickly.  Next week we're in the middle of August already.
Today is Wednesday which mean it's another wonderful 

Congratulations to our winner and top 3 cards from last week, great work ladies.

This week Sally has another lovely sketch for you to work with.  I had my image, I knew what my design papers I would use and thought, I've got to used brown on this one.  Sorry ladies you must know me by now as I don't use brown very often, it's not a colour I use in my colour palette and totally out of my comfort zone :-)
But at the end of the day I was happy with the result.

Sketch #023  

Here's my card using our sponsors image which is Bugaboo Stamps.  This layout is rather easy and looks great.

My finished card.

This week here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 our sponsor is 
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 seriously 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.
