90 Sketches!! and a little bit of Sunshine

Hello and welcome to our latest sketch challenge for you. 
It's Anne here from Yorkshire in the North of England as your hostess this week. It's bluebell time here at the moment so I thought that I would share a picture of some of this pretty woodland flower with you.

Before I reveal this week's sketch, we'd like to announce our winner of the prize from Sketch 89 with Bugaboo challenge.  Drum-roll for the Grand Prize Winner please....Congratulations, it's you

#14  Camille!!

Please contact Sally at to claim your prize. Please also be sure to grab the winners badge to proudly display on your blog. The winner's badges can be found in the sidebar.

Crafters - no Top Three this week!!  We announce Top Three when our entries exceed 15...  so, spread the word and keep that Mojo flowing!!

This week our sponsor is Heather Valentin.  She is a creative, award winning,  modern-day  fantasy and  whimsical  artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.  She  began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where colour, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and  brush stroke. Her  subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more ...

Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Our very lucky winner will receive

3 Images

This was my backyard just 2 weeks ago but I am happy to report that Spring has come to Colorado ... yep, the snow is gone.  I don't know about you but I am sooo ready for warm weather!  Bring on Summer!!

Today is also Wednesday and that means it's time for some FUN over here on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.  We have a new sketch and the return of a favored sponsor.

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.
