Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Today being Wednesday means it's a Sweet Sketch 2 Wednesday and we have a new sketch and a great sponsor.

Here's another look at my card as well as the inside.

Now it's time to reveal this fortnights sketch.

Sketch #135

It's a very simple sketch so easy and it looks good.

This fortnight our sponsor is Bugaboo Digital Stamps. We all adore Bugaboo images and so many wonderful images and characters to choose from, there's something for everyone.
Here is a bit about Jodie Mackrell the owner and illustrator of Bugaboo images.

Bugaboo Stamps
Jodie's Bio
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 paper crafting 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 sugary 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 love this card. I agree with you, it's difficult to make sympathy cards but they are definitely something that you need to have on hand. The pink, black and white coloring on your card is elegant and simply perfect. Miss seeing your work (I've been terrible at getting out to see my favorite blogs ... no time)
