The wonderful sponsor of this week's challenge is Laurie from the Doodle Pantry and the Grand Prize is 3 Digital Images of the winner's choice!!

Here is a little message from Laurie to all of you:
“I am simply thrilled and so thankful to be able to sponsor this Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge! We have a wide variety of whimsical characters as well as realistic scenery, floral images, scriptures and a small selection of digitally pre-coloured images. My digital doodles have a special place in my life, and I enjoy the opportunity to share them with everyone at affordable prices.”
So are you surprised at my choice of image that I used this week?....not so much right?!...hehehe, this cool cat had my name written all over it!  It was the perfect opportunity to use some of my pink Peace sign paper, and I kept it pretty simple (for me anyway). I think I actually had one of these chairs when I was a looks familiar to me.

The rest of the SSW Design Team Diva's have rocked the house with their terrific creations, so you need to check them all out and how about joining us this week too?  We are always excited and thrilled to see your creations!

Cardstock - CTMH
Paper - Karen Foster
Other Stuff - ProMarkers, ribbon and rhinestones baby...that's it!
My Favorite Thing - Well, if you're a cardmaker you know how every now and then you actually make something that you really like....this is one I'm keeping for myself!

Peace & Luv and Happy Leap Year Day!
Have you got your fill of coffee yet and are you ready for another Monday?.............big sigh......

I'm still working on my first cup, and without even realizing it when my card was done it pretty much matched my actual coffee cup this morning!  That cracked me up for a minute.

Anyway, I never seem to have enough cards for "just because" and so I thought this one fit the bill for that.  It was created using Sketch 154 at CardPatterns.

Digital Image - Broken Box Stock
Cardstock - Bazzill
Double-Sided Paper - Scribble Scrabble
Other Stuff - Circle nestie, kraft border from CTMH, and DMC floss.

Peace & Luv,
Well hello and Happy Friday-Eve to you!!

Digital Sentiment - Create with TLC
 Papers - Stampin' Up
Other Stuff - Markers, twine, Prisma flowers, and rhinestones.
My Favorite Thing - The happy birdies!

Have a beautiful day!

Peace & Luv,


The sponsor of this week's challenge is Bugaboo Stamps, which is where these fun and funky coffee cups are from!

The Grand Prize winner this week will receive 7 digital stamps that value $!  There is also a very cool blog called Catch The Bug that you should check out and see the wonderful things that not only their DT have created, but two of our own SSW DT Diva's have created and will be featured on as well!

At first I was going to put the sentiment on the inside, but then I decided to put it on the outside:

So then, totally unrelated, I've been wanting to make one of these chickens that I've seen a few places but couldn't find a template for.  So I just made one up, and since I had these papers in front of me I just decided to use them:
 Pretty cute, ya?!!

 I can't wait to see what you come up with this week, and if you have any Bugaboo images of course we'd love to have you use them but it is not necessary.
