Mouse Big Flower

Welcome to my blog.  What a great week with so many lovely entries it was so nice visiting your blogs.  Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards.
This week I've made my card for my dear gardener Christine, she had to resign last week as she's been having trouble with her arm for about a year,  now she has to have an operation and stop doing the the job she loves.  Chris has worked for us for 12 years, she's just like a member of the family, my boys always ask after her as she's been at our place once a week for the last 12 years most of their lives.  I have a lovely gift to go with her card and we're going out to lunch tomorrow.

It's Wednesday here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 which means we have another great sketch by Sally, it's really easy, it's something you can keep simple or bling it up with embellishments.

Sketch # 89

Here's some other views of my card.  I just love this image from our sponsor this week which is Bugaboo Stamps.  Perfect for a gardener.

This week we have one of our very favourite sponsors sponsoring us this week the wonderful Jodie Mackrell owner of 
Bugaboo Stamps. 

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.
