Flower Bird

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  As I get older I wonder where my 24 hours a day goes to.  As a child days seem to be longer and now days a day passes so quickly and I don't have enough hours in a day to get everything done.
I would love to have a day a week in my craft room just to do what I want to do, but when the family is around I feel so guilty sitting crafting when I know there are other things I could be and should be doing.
This week we have another wonderful sketch which is brilliant and you can use up all those scrap pieces of your favourite design papers that we all keep.

Sketch # 93

I know I've used Flower Bird before but I just adore this image.
Here my card using this wonderful image.

3 D mounting of the image and a quick look at the inside of my card.

This week our wonderful 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.

Now it's time to grab a coffee and check out what Team
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2  have created using Bugaboo images.

How adorable Kathie!!! Love the blues and yellows, talk about bright and cheery! And your papers are fabulous. I hear ya about finding time to hit the craft room. I think being a night owl helps, that way I'm in there creating when everyone else is in bed. Problem is, I want to sleep in the next morning but that sure isn't happening!!!!!

Wow. I don't know what I like best: the sparkly accents or your papers (some of my favorite colors). That image is darling too. Great job this week Kathie.

Kathie this is so adorable. Love the colors. I agree with you about spending time with family. This last weekend I had to work and my daughter was home so it was really difficult. They just don't make the days long enough as you get older.
