Sweet Sweet Sunshine

This picture made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, because it reminds me of the fact that in a month, I'll be on the beach watching beautiful sunrises like this one! Ahhh, summer vacation, there's nothing better.

As always, we here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 say "WELCOME" to you all. We are always so happy to see the wonderful creations you share with us. Before getting into this week's sketch, let me first announce our grand prize winner.

Here's the moment you've been waiting for, our latest sketch for this week's challenge. Isn't it fabulous?!!! You're gonna have fun with this one.

 Our sponsor this week is the one and only Bugaboo Stamps. Owner and artist Jodi is offering our winner 7 free images!!! Now that's one fabulous prize!
Here's a little bit about Jodi and 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."

And now I get to share with you the fabulous creations of our very talented Design Team. Please take a moment and visit their blogs and give 'em a little love!!










Such wonderful inspiration. Now time to get your craft on and join us here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Thanks for stopping!
