Bugaboo Birthday Bird 4

Good evening and welcome to my blog.  I can't believe that my boys summer holiday break is nearly over only two more weeks and they're back to school.  Our summer hasn't been that amazing so far, yes you guessed it our summer will get hot and sticky once they go back to school and they're stuck in their classrooms.

Welcome back to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for 2017.
Congratulations to last months winner I noticed a few more entries than usual which was nice.

This fortnight we have a new sketch by our very own
Anne great sketch and it's really easy.

Sketch # 104

Here's a quick glimpse of my finished card and the inside of it. 

This week our wonderful sponsor is Jodie Mackrell the owner and illustrator over at 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 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.

I agree with how summer has been so far. I saw a sign the other day that I felt summed it up: "Coming Soon........Summer". And that particular day it was a bitter cold windy day!
I'm loving this tent fold card Kathie. Lovely stitching on the layers around the image.
