We welcome back Jodie and Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor this week. We all love to create with the wonderful and whimsical digi stamps that Jodie creates for Bugaboo. Our grand prize winner will receive 7 free digi images from Bugaboo – a fantastic and generous prize. Now here is a little info about Jodie and 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.


Prize:  7 Free Images


Thanks Jodie!  We love creating with Bugaboo digi stamps!

And here’s what the design team created for your inspiration using Bugaboo stamps:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch 118 -49 Revisited and our new Sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps

Welcome everyone to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It’s Kathie here as your hostess this week from New Zealand.  I can't believe that it's the end of June already and our winter has started we're having beautiful sunny days but a few frosty mornings and this morning was -2c which is cold for our neck of the woods and another part of NZ was -20c which is really cold.

Here's our local mountain about a 4 hour drive from our home it's 
Mt Ruapehu where we ski and this is the mountain that my son went to the summit last year it's not one of our highest mountains standing at 2,797 metres or (9,177 feet).  It has a creator lake and is still an active Volcanic Mountain.
  The last time it erupted was 25th September 2007.

SSW2-56: A Day For Daisies


There are several wonderful things about living in Colorado Springs (beautiful views are at the top of the list) but one of the fun things that locals can do is tell the month of the year using only their ears!  What?!!  True!!  At the end of May, the Air Force Cadets graduate and the Thunderbirds roar overhead to help them celebrate.

The Jets fly in synchronized patterns and it is just amazing to watch their precision ... the ROAR of their jet engines is pretty fun too!

Usually their 6 pilots arrive about a week early and we get about a week to enjoy them as they practice navigating the mountain thermals in the area.  The boys and I enjoyed watching their practices in the Stop and Drop line at their school!

Actually, the entire Academy is gorgeous.  I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the area.

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for some FUN over here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  We have a new sketch and the return of a favored sponsor.

Before we get started with our new challenge, I want to announce last week's winner.  Yippee, it's YOU ...

This week we welcome the return of Tammy from A Day for Daisies.

A Day for Daisies

A Day For Daisies began as a small token to a constant need to create. Pairing a love of whimsical illustration, with a tidy graphic design background, Tammy S Thompson, produced her first stamp designs, introducing irresistibly sweet stamps to crafters around the globe. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful world around us, she strives to express the happiness and gratitude she feels in each stamp design she creates.
Presently, A Day For Daisies has grown to over 3,000 Digital Stamps with a quickly expanding line of Best Loved Clear Polymer. A Day For Daisies has been published and awarded over the years for innovative and unique designs created to inspire the crafting community. With a whole team behind her now, she remains passionate about illustration, obsessed with quality, and dedicated to her customers. A Day For Daisies thanks you for your ideas, comments, and creativity!

This week our lucky winner will receive: 
Our Prize:  $12 Gift Certificate
