BUGABOO - Sweet Sketch #195

Welcome Wednesday!!  Time for a new Sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We have a wonderful Sponsor - BUGABOO!!

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrelldecided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! 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 Stampsstamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

We all LOVE Jodie's images and she is so generous and this week's winner will win 7 free digis!!!  So get over to our BLOG and check out the wonderful creations of the Design Team.  

Here is this week's Sketch:

And here is my card using Theodore Birthday Sign!!

I can't wait to see your creations!!

Blessings to you all!!

The weeks go by so quickly!!  Mid February already and Valentine's Day tomorrow...  But today we kick off a new Sketch Challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week Krista Smith of Saturated Canary is our Sponsor.
Here is a little about Krista:

My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world and-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

Krista is offering 2 free digis  to the Winner of this week's Challenge!!

Birthday Wishes

Quick post of a quick card I made for a dear friend last night - Birthday Wishes!!
I used the papers (Winter Frost 6"x 6" pad from We R Memory) and ribbon from the December Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions.  Check out their Subscription.  It's like giving yourself a present once a month!!  I love it!!  I used a Pure Innocence image along with a sentiment from Lili of the Valley.
The base is from the $1 bin at my local A.C. Moore store.  How cool is that =)

No Challenge - just a card, for a friend.  I apologize for the photo quality - colors seem a bit washed out...

Blessings to you all!!
