Tulip Jar


Merry Christmas 
a hot and summery
New Zealand.
Good morning and welcome to my blog, as I've said in my previous posting there isn't enough hours in my day as I know all of us have so much to do at this time of year.

This week over at Sweet Sketch
Wednesday 2 we had to pick
our favourite sketch of the year, I picked Sketch # 119 which you might remember one that  I designed, here's the sketch and my card that I made for that challenge.

My reason for choosing this sketch is because I loved making this card and the fresh clean look it had also I won a lot of challenges with it so that's my reasoning.

Now onto this fortnights card using our sponsor's image
Jar Tulip by Bugaboo Stamps.

That's right our sponsor this week is 
Bugaboo Stamps 

The lovely Jodie Mackrell the owner and illustrator of Bugaboo Stamps

This is lovely Kathie. It's hard to imagine a hot Christmas (it's 12 degrees here today!) but I gotta say it sounds absolutely WONDERFUL. I could do with some beach time. I hope you and your boys have a fabulous Christmas and New Years.

Kathie: what a very lovely pink card! And I like your sketch layout design, too. I don't often see triangles being used, so for me this is a refreshing sketch suggestion. About the weather, I'm in the central USA and had 3" snow on 12/24 and then last night 12/29 we got another whopping 6-8". Haven't heard the official in our town but it's piled high on the lamp post and deck railings. Even hubby is talking about staying in all day! :) Your tulip card is beautiful!
