SSW2 Sketch #73 Bugaboo

Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 it's Kathie here from New Zealand and I'm your hostess this week.  I can't believe that we're in the first week of November already and there's only 50 days until Christmas and the Holiday season is upon us.  It's going to feel strange for myself and family this year as we're spending our Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere, where it's going to be a lot colder than we're use to and hopefully we'll have some snow.  Our Christmas holiday season is part of our summer holiday celebrations and being very warm.  My husband who is Irish will have to acclimatised as it's many years since he's had a cold Christmas.

New Zealanders were up glued to their Televisions early hours of Sunday morning watching the World Cup Rugby Final
New Zealand's All Blacks V's Australia's Wallabies 

New Zealand win the World Cup
Ruthless New Zealand withstood a rousing fightback from Australia before crushing the Wallabies 34-17 at Twickenham to become world champions for a record third time and the first team to retain the Webb Ellis Cup back to back.
We are so proud of our World Cup winning team and their families.
Congratulations from all of us.

Sketch #73

Another great sketch to work with and it's very easy.

We also welcome back one of Team Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 favourite sponsors

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 seriously 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.

Jodie is offering our very lucky winner this week

Now it's time to see what
Team Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 have created this week using

Bugaboo Stamps


Used one of my very favourite Bugaboo characters  Gus
Gus Christmas Aspirin.  Don't you love those glasses.


Linda has used Christmas Ornaments I love this image Linda especially your colour combo.


Anne has used this really cute image Autumn Scarecrow I love your colours Anne.


They say great minds think alike, both Anne and Heide have chosen the same image and both cards look so different.  Love the use of the natural jute and straw.

from Kathie'z Kardz

Yes I used an old favourite of mine JJ Christmas Cheer, I do think that all of us know a JJ in our lives we've come across or crossed paths with at some stage.
She really makes me smile.
