J J Cheers

Welcome to my blog and I'm sorry that this posting is late but I've been having trouble with my computer.

Today I'm dedicating this card
JJ Cheers to the late
Robert (Rob) Anderson
who was tragically killed on Tuesday.

I met Rob last year he traveled to Argentina and Chile with us on Liam's Spanish school trip with his son Liam.  Hence Rob was the only male among 6 adult females that traveled with the boys on this trip.  Rob and I got on like a house on fire and I know he would have enjoyed this card as we both had the same sense of humour.  We would both laugh so much sometimes we would be crying.
 Rest in Peace my friend thank you for all the laughs and smiles.  

Yesterday was Wednesday which meant we have another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to our winner and top 3 from last week,  great work everyone.

Sketch # 36

Here is my card using JJ Cheers.

Don't you just love JJ I know Rob would have!!!

This week 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 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 

I think we all love Bugaboo Stamps and they cater for everyone's taste and sense of humor.

Don't forget to drop by the rest of the design team and check out what they've created this week.  All we had to do was follow the sketch using a Bugaboo Stamp and isn't it funny we all used Christmas images and made Christmas cards.

Kathie, love all your glitz and glitter on this glam card. It's perfect in the non-traditional Christmas colors. You always put your cards together so well. So sorry to hear about the tragedy of your friend. Glad you had the laughs and good times to remember. Funny thing I was having problems with my computer yesterday too.
