Sweet Sketch 97 and Bugaboo

Hello and welcome visitors old and new to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for our latest challenge.

It's Anne here in the UK as your hostess this week and before I introduce the sponsor and sketch for this week I'd like to invite one or more of you to join us as a Guest Designer in a future challenge. If you would like to be considered please put "GDT" after your name when you enter.

I'll be back a bit later with our winner and top 3 from the last challenge.

This time we are sponsored once again by Bugaboo Stamps. 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 2-96- Doodle pantry.

Hello and Welcome….Heide Here from MI and I am your hostess this week for Sweet Sketch 
Wednesdays 2.

Wow! Can you believe that it is already the end of August? It’s almost Fall. Time for Pumpkins, colorful leaves, cooler crisp days, and School.  That is unless you live Where Kathy (from the DT) lives and I believe it is spring for her.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!  I have already seen Mums at the stores. Which is good because after all this heat from this Summer, my flowers are looking super scraggly and need to be changed out and I think Mums are just what I need on my front porch.
                                             Image result for fall Mum images
