The sponsor of this week's challenge is the fun and amazing Bugaboo Stamps and the Grand Prize winner will receive 7 digi stamps that vale $21!!

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising five 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 world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! 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 stamps at Totally Stampalicious.  Finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

As usual, the SSW Design Team Diva's have created some very fun things, so if you need some inspiration be sure to check them all out and join us.  We love to see what you create with our sketches!

Happy Earth Day!


I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I

Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That's why we

Celebrate this day.
That's why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.


Peace & Luv,

Hello there ~ I hope you had an awesome weekend!  I bought a pack of paper recently from Imaginisce that I just adore!  The papers are double sided and full of all kinds of pretty and shiny goodness, so much so that I've decided to use it all week long!!  I guess I'm in a Strawberry mood because I made a Strawberry Slab Pie for a CTMH get together on Saturday and today this strawberry paper just jumped right into my hands.  Strawberry cake with chocolate frosting....yum!

The sponsor of this week's Sketch is Digi Doodle Shop and the Grand Prize winner this week will receive a $10 Store Gift Certificate....yippee!!

Here's a message from Judy and Joy to you:
Digi Doodle Shop is the result of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life" and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations.  We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
 
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.

 
Sincerely,
Judy and Joy

I saw something similar to this on Pinterest and since I hadn't used these pretty papers from Stampin' Up yet I thought this would be the perfect time.
It looks very Easter-y to me!
Note to Gina:  I added a Pin it button above my mugshot....let me know if it works!

Happy Friday-Eve!

The sponsor of this week's challenge is Sassy Cheryl's....yippee!!  The Grand Prize winner this week will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to spend as you wish on some of these amazing and adorable images!

Here's a little note from Cheryl herself to all of you:

Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.
I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about twelve years ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits.  It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!  It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)
Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images. Thanks for playing along this week…happy coloring!

Please also check out what the rest of the SSW Design Team Divas have created and join us, we can't wait to see what you create with this fantastic sketch!!
