This week we are revisiting a Sketch of Arlana's - I loved using it and am so pleased with the result.  Wonderful Sketch - and - we have a Wonderful Sponsor...  Jodie of Bugaboo Stamps!!  She has created some really adorable images...

Bugaboo StampsEverything 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.  

Here is the Sketch...

I chose to use Ava Flower Patch.

Thanks so much for visiting - I can't wait to see your creations!!  This week's winner will receive 7 Free Digi images from Bugaboo - WoW!!

It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!
She has wonderful images - I love working with.  Be sure to check them out this week - also be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team cards at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Really outstanding!!
