SSW2-83: Bugaboo

Hi everyone!  It’s Joanna here from ch-ch-chilly Colorado posting this week for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 team. I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day, full of laughter, fun and loved ones.  With Valentine's behind us, is it too early to be looking forward to warmer temperatures and Spring?!!

For those of you who are new to this blog, welcome!  We are so happy to have you join us!  And for those loyal followers of SSW2, we welcome you back and thank you for your support!

Before we get started with our new challenge, I want to announce last week's winner.  Yippee, it's YOU ...
#7 Crafty Girl

Please e-mail Sally at to claim your prize!!

And here, in no particular order, is the list of our TOP THREE favorite cards from last week's challenge...

#1 Simply Stamping
#11 Stephanie S.
#15 Chris

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.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Some places here in the north east were hit hard with the recent winter storm. Family told me of getting nearly 3 feet!!! I had to break the news to them a little bit north of Pittsburgh, we got 3 inches!! I couldn't resist posting this picture of Olaf, thinking of the song "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" My answer is NO, I want to go to the beach instead!!!!!

So glad to see you here with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. We've switched things up a bit with the new year, making our challenges every two weeks.

Before getting into our latest sketch, let me first announce our grand prize winner of 3 free single images or 1 free digi set from Beccy's Place...
