From seriously snarky to sugary 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.

Sketch #165 and #166 with Bugaboo Stamps

Good morning everyone and welcome to 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
It's Kathie here this month from Auckland New Zealand and we are in the middle of our winter with colder temperatures and lots of rain and I'm nearly over winter already. Where have those frosty mornings gone to and those sunny winters days? 

If you didn't join us last month or didn't read our important notice you wouldn't realise that
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 our going to a
MONTHLY CHALLENGE
as of today.

Our Important notice from our last posting:
From August Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 will be moving to a monthly challenge. Our sketches will be posted on the first Wednesday of each month which will give everyone longer to join in, and we won't be scrimping on the sketches, there will still be 2 sketches each month for you to use. So our Guest Designer winner will just need to create one card each month for the September to December challenges.

Our winner from last fortnight who will be our Guest Designer from
September, October, November and December 
is
SILKE
from Karten Kram

Congratulations and we are so looking forward to working with you and your wonderful creations.

Now we have two sketches from now on each month to choose from and if you want to let your creative juices run wild and want to support us and go that extra mile you could even create two cards using both sketches, wouldn't that be wonderful.

Here are the two sketches I've created for you this month.

Sketch #165

Sketch #166

This month we have a wonderful sponsor it's
Jodie Mackrell the owner and illustrator of
Bugaboo Stamps
