Sketch #165 and #166 with Bugaboo Stamps

Good morning everyone and welcome to 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
It's Kathie here this month from Auckland New Zealand and we are in the middle of our winter with colder temperatures and lots of rain and I'm nearly over winter already. Where have those frosty mornings gone to and those sunny winters days? 

If you didn't join us last month or didn't read our important notice you wouldn't realise that
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 our going to a
as of today.

Our Important notice from our last posting:
From August Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 will be moving to a monthly challenge. Our sketches will be posted on the first Wednesday of each month which will give everyone longer to join in, and we won't be scrimping on the sketches, there will still be 2 sketches each month for you to use. So our Guest Designer winner will just need to create one card each month for the September to December challenges.

Our winner from last fortnight who will be our Guest Designer from
September, October, November and December 
from Karten Kram

Congratulations and we are so looking forward to working with you and your wonderful creations.

Now we have two sketches from now on each month to choose from and if you want to let your creative juices run wild and want to support us and go that extra mile you could even create two cards using both sketches, wouldn't that be wonderful.

Here are the two sketches I've created for you this month.

Sketch #165

Sketch #166

This month we have a wonderful sponsor it's
Jodie Mackrell the owner and illustrator of
Bugaboo Stamps

Bugaboo Stamps
Jodie's Bio
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 paper crafting 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 sugary 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.

Our lucky winner will receive
of their choice.

  1. Just love all the bright coloured projects. It is so uplifting from the winter where we are.
    Hugs from Africa!

  2. Great sketches and projects by the DT

  3. Oooo . . . two great sketches! Having all month to play along will give plenty of time to play along.
    Beautiful inspiration from the DT.

  4. Thanks for the fun sketch challenge and DT inspiration!

  5. I had trouble figuring out how to link up my second card as they both appear in the post for the first card. I ended up creating another post linking to my first post. Hope that is okay.

  6. I'm hoping that I have correctly interpreted the piece up the top of this post that says "you could even create two cards using both sketches". I have made two cards from one sketch and two from the other. I may even make a second one from the other sketch if someone can confirm whether I have interpreted this correctly.

    1. That’s fine Suze, our current rules don’t put a limit on the number of times you can enter. Looking forward to seeing what else you create x

  7. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely works by the design team.
