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.

Prize:  4 Free Images

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

and here is the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team

Firstly it's Linda, 
with a guest appearance using a very sweet sunbonnet image perfect for the 4th July

Here's a perfectly composed card from Judi using Monster Truck
Judi for our newer followers is a Sweet Sketch Wednesday original and designs for us once a month.

Here's Heide, back from her holidays with a fun card using
29 again

It's lovely to have Joanna back too with this lovely creation using 
Under the Sea Birthday Set

and Kathie is back creating and made this oh so pretty card using an image from
Mini Block Flower Set

Margaret has a slightly different take on the sketch with this creation using
AKV Barbecue

and here's a sweet card from Lisa using Bugaboo Boy Side Peek

and Kelly used Birthday Quilt for her creation

then I used Friendship Sentiment for my own card

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.

Happy crafting
