Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2-96- Doodle pantry.

Hello and Welcome….Heide Here from MI and I am your hostess this week for Sweet Sketch 
Wednesdays 2.
                                                           

Wow! Can you believe that it is already the end of August? It’s almost Fall. Time for Pumpkins, colorful leaves, cooler crisp days, and School.  That is unless you live Where Kathy (from the DT) lives and I believe it is spring for her.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!  I have already seen Mums at the stores. Which is good because after all this heat from this Summer, my flowers are looking super scraggly and need to be changed out and I think Mums are just what I need on my front porch.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Bugaboo

Can you tell by this picture where I'm headed off to in a little over a week?!!! I can't wait!! Sun, sand and surf...our annual beach vacation is always a blast!

We were so happy to see so many fabulous creations using our last sketch...you guys are awesome! We have a new one for you to try but first, let me get down to business. Everyone from our last challenge was a winner because all of the images from our sponsor, Dearie Dolls, are free!!


Here's our latest sketch for you to try!!

 

 We have the return of a fan favorite sponsor, 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."

Challenge Blog: Catch the Bug

Prize:  7 Free Images
