Sketch 119 with Digi Stamp Boutique

Hello everyone welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

It is Margaret here from Sydney, Australia (everyone knows me as Granmargaret).  I live in a suburb 12 km south of the Sydney Central Business district.  This is the last month of cold winter and I am looking forward to my favourite season Spring starting in September.
I love being on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 design team.

We have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us this fortnight.    Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  She has so many wonderful images to choose from.  I encourage you to check out 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. 
This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  

Are you ready to see this week's sketch.  Here it is…
Designed by Kathie

This is the card I made to the sketch using one of the images  and one of the sentiments from Digi Stamp Boutique 
Details of my card are on my blog

The design team have been busy making lovely cards for you to see.

118 Cute As A Button

Good morning everyone and welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

It's Joanna from beautiful Colorado. It's been a crazy summer for us here.  I've been in school this summer (3 more days until I am done, done DONE!!) Not that I am counting.  But it's been challenging doing school plus all the normal summer activities (family trips to National Monuments, camping, swimming, etc.)  All I can say is thank heavens for WiFi!!

We went to Mount Rushmore, The Crazy Horse Monument, Wind Cave, Custer State Park, The Badlands, and Devil's Tower in Wyoming ... (phew!!)  There is a lot to see in that area.

But let's get back to what you came for ... the Sweet Sketch Wednesday post.  This week we have the return of Francesca from the Cute As A Button shop

She is offering our winner 2 digital images from her shop.  Yay!

I'll bet your ready to see our sketch for this fortnight?  It's by the incomparable Kathie!  So versatile and easy to use ... I know that you will want to join in the fun this week.

Our Design Team was busy making cards for you to see.  So here is your eye candy ...

A Bumper Batch of Bugaboo!

Hello and the warmest of welcomes to our latest challenge here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

It's Anne here in the UK as your hostess this week and I am going to start with a polite reminder.

Some of you always follow all of our rules and we are very grateful to those of you that do, but some of you don't do all that we ask of you so therefore we can't include you in the picks for the prize as that wouldn't be fair on those that do. 

So please

  • Leave us a comment in the comments section at the end of this post
  • Include a copy of our sketch in your post
  • Add a link back to our blog
and then you will have a chance to win our prize. To check out the full list please click on the tab at the top of the page.

Thank you

So now onto this weeks challenge where we are sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo

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:

We all love to create with Jodis images, she really does have such a diverse collection of images and I think that our design team have done them proud this week

So here is Sketch no 116 created by our Kathie

So there you are, I do hope that we have inspired you to play along with us this fortnight and I'm sure that all our designers would love it if you could click on the link to their blog in the left hand sidebar and leave them a little love.

Have a great couple of weeks and I'll be back later with the winner of the last challenge.
