It’s another great sketch this week by our own talented Sally Dube!  We’re so lucky to have Sally creating these wonderful sketches while our sweet Arlana is recovering.  Let’s give another Get Well shout out to Arlana – we miss her terribly here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  We’re thinking of you every week Arlana and looking forward to the day you return with your wonderful creations – both sketches and cards! 

Be sure to check the rules for the challenge at the bottom of this post – we want everyone to be eligible for the Grand Prize!

This week we’re featuring our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps! Jodi at Bugaboo is a regular sponsor of Sweet Sketch Wednesday and we love the fun images she creates!  The Grand Prize winner of this week’s challenge will receive 7  free digi images totaling $21 from Bugaboo – a terrific prize!  Thanks Jodi for your generous support of our challenges!

Now here’s a little bit about Bugaboo Stamps and their creator Jodi: 
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 Bugaboo Stamps  at Totally Stampalicious.  And finally, join theBugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
