SSW2-89 and Bugaboo!!

This was my backyard just 2 weeks ago but I am happy to report that Spring has come to Colorado ... yep, the snow is gone.  I don't know about you but I am sooo ready for warm weather!  Bring on Summer!!

Today is also Wednesday and that means it's time for some FUN over here on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.  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 ...

Well done!  Congratulations.  You guys should also grab your badge from our sidebar for your blog. 

Now, on to this week’s challenge... This week we welcome back Jodie and Bugaboo Stamps (insert giggles and hand clapping)

I think I can speak for the entire design team when I say that we all love to create with her wonderful and whimsical digital stamps.  No matter your personal style, you can find it over at Bugaboo.

Our grand prize winner will receive 7 free digi images from Bugaboo – a fantastic and generous prize.

Here is a bit of information 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.
