Hedgehog Flower

 Good morning and welcome to my blog and to another wonderful sunny spring morning here in New Zealand.

It's Wednesday the middle of the week which means it's 

Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards, lovely work and I loved that hint of coffee on your cards, weather it was colour, sentiment or image.

Here's another piece of Cross Stitch I've just finished and had framed.

This week we have another great sketch by Sally

Sketch #29
 This sketch is just so easy and looks great.

Here's my card using our sponsors image, I love Hedgehogs and Ladybugs so I just had to have this very cute image from Bugaboo Stamps.

Well as you can tell by now our wonderful sponsor this week is Jodie Mackrell the 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 this week will win

 What an amazing and such a generous prize, there's just so many wonderful images to choose from that would suit anyone's style.

Don't forget to drop by the rest of the design team over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and see what the rest of the design team created to Jodie's wonderful images.
I've go to say that Stella, Gus and JJ are my very favourite images.

Kathie, your card is just adorable. Love the coloring of your hedgehog. The ladybug is a wonderful accent. Love the bright colors. We are having the fall in which our leaves are turning colors. My daughter will be home for the weekend and I can't wait to spend some time with her.
