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

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!

We are Back! Bugaboo and SSW2- 104

Hello Blogging friends, We are back! After a little time off and a nice rest, we are starting this new year all refreshed and with a new sketch. 
Hi! It is Heide here from Michigan your hostess this week.  If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2, Welcome!  If you are one of are returning crafty friends glad you could stop by. I was thankful for the little break but, now I am excited to get back in and get my hands on my paper and copics again! 
So Lets Start.....
This week our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. Here is a little bit of info about Jodi Mackrell the owner and oh so talented designer with 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.

                                                       

Store www.bugaboostamps.com
Challenge Blog:  http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com

This weeks winner will receive 4 free images. 
Here is this weeks sketch. 



And Here is some wonderful inspiration from SSW2's talented design team. 













Hope we provided you with some card making inspiration and we can see what you come up with in the linky below. 

Please be sure to read the guidelines in the Challenge rules .
Happy Card making!!
