Here is a little something about Little blue button Stamps.
Little Blue Button Stamps started it's life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company "Digital designs by Olga".
Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.
In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.
Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printable by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva.
Prize-$10 gift certificate.

A BIG welcome to Little Blue Button Stamps and Thank you for being our sponsor!

Sketch 109 with Bugaboo


Well the blossom is on the trees here in the north of England so that must mean that spring is here. 

I hope that you are enjoying the change of season where you are too.

It's time for another new sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

This time we have another sketch from Kathie


Please feel to rotate it but remember we must be able to see the sketch in your entry.

Bugaboo are sponsoring us again this challenge, we all love to create with Jodies images, there is such a great selection on her site, something for everyone.




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.

Sketch 107 Sami Stamps and a DT call

Can you believe that it is March already, the snowdrops and crocuses are out and hopefully spring is on the way here in the North of England.

It's been quite a year in our little Sweet Sketch family so far this year, Linda has left the team after many years, Kathie has broken her leg in 2 places and is hopefully by now recovering well from surgery. I have a new job which means I have very little time to create just now. 

We are a bit thin on the ground with DT samples this time around so we are having a DT call and are looking for 2 or 3 new DT members to join our friendly team. You will need to make a card following the sketch using an image from our sponsor and comment on entries. We also take it in turns to host the challenge. If you are interested please email me at anne_ssw2@aol.co.uk with a link to your blog or put DT after your name when you link your entry.


This time around we are sponsored by Sami Stamps.

SSW2 106 with DigiStamp Boutique


Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and summer from New Zealand.
I can't believe we are half way through February already.  I do hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and were spoilt rotten.

It was wonderful seeing so many entries this week you must have loved that sketch of Anne's they say and change is as good as a rest.  It was great visiting your blogs and seeing all of your creativity and so many entries.

Farewell Linda

This fortnight it's sad for me to say good bye to a very close and dear friend and Design Team member the lovely Linda Anderson who has decided to move onto greener pastures.  You can't blame Linda for moving on as her and I both started on the design team of Sweet Sketch Wednesday at the same time and then moved onto Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 back in June 2010.  This means Linda has dedicated 6 and half years producing cards every week and then fortnightly and commenting.   I think I can speak for the entire Design Team here and say we'll miss you and your lovely work and wish you all the very best for your future happiness and I know we'll see you in blogland.


We are so grateful that you join us each fortnight. I think that you will be glad that you stopped by this fortnight as we have a new sketch and the return of a favourite sponsor.

Be sure and come back later, Anne will be posting our winner from the last challenge.

This week we welcome back the talented Sally-Ann Hancock from DigiStamp Boutique,   who is sponsoring us, I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann has a sale on at present and is having a clean out of her retiring images some down as low as 79p each others at 99p each, there's some brilliant images to choose from so don't miss out.

I encourage you to check her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 

Sally-Ann is offering our lucky winner 
Prize:   £10 voucher

to purchase images from her online store.
  You'll be spoilt for choice as there are so many to choose from and new images being added every month.
Check out her online store


Let's take a look at what the fabulous Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Design team have for your creative inspiration this fortnight using a sketch design by Sally Dube.

Sketch # 106

Feel free to flip or twist the sketch if that suits you, but we need to be able to see that it is there. Also don't forget to put a copy of the sketch in your post and leave a comment for a chance of winning.

Now lets see what our design team have created for you.

Can you believe that it is the first day of February?!!  Holy moly ... where did January go? Tomorrow is GroundHog's Day here in the States, and before too long it will be time to celebrate Valentine's Day.  I gotta say that GroundHog's Day is one of the sillier holidays here but it IS tradition!

It was so great to get back to creating cards for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  I think I can speak for the entire Design Team when I say that we enjoy visiting your blogs, and it was fun to get back to seeing YOUR lovely work.

Be sure and come back later today, Anne will be posting our winner from the last challenge.

This week we welcome back the talented Megan Suarez from Dilly Beans Stamps.  Our grand prize winner will receive 3 free digi images from her shop.
