Well hello there, Wednesday friends!!

It's Joanna, from Colorado, back again as your hostess this week.  Spring is trying to come to Colorado.  We've had some warmer weather,  and there are hopeful little buds on trees.  Unfortunately... as most of us who live here know, Spring can come to an end at any point!  Our weatherman has predicted that my area is due to get 8 inches of wet snow on Friday.  (Sigh).  And there goes our Spring!

We would like to welcome another new member to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 design team ... it's Lisa from the One Happy Little Crafter blog.  Here's a bit more about her:

Hi, I am Lisa and I blog as One Happy Little Crafter. I live in the South of England with one husband, two kids, one cat and two dogs.  I have been card making for about 10 years now, still loving it and very much enjoy being part of several design teams. I really enjoy following sketches, so was delighted to have the opportunity to join this lovely team! 

We have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us this fortnight.  I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  This month there are 6 new sets.  She also has all her Easter and Spring images on sale for 30% off right now!

I encourage you to check out her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 

This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  Yippee!

Are you ready to see this week's sketch.  Here it is…

Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.
In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.

Sketch 109 with Bugaboo

Well the blossom is on the trees here in the north of England so that must mean that spring is here. 

I hope that you are enjoying the change of season where you are too.

It's time for another new sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

This time we have another sketch from Kathie

Please feel to rotate it but remember we must be able to see the sketch in your entry.

Bugaboo are sponsoring us again this challenge, we all love to create with Jodies images, there is such a great selection on her site, something for everyone.

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.

Challenge Blog:

Prize:  4 Free Images

Here are the cards from the DT
