Sweet Sketch and Bugaboo

Can you tell autumn is my favorite time of year?!! There's nothing better than jumping into a pile of leaves to make you feel like a kid again! And the colors are oh so beautiful. Too bad we can't go from fall right into spring and summer, skipping winter all together!

Here is our fabulous sketch for this week. We can't wait to see what you create with it! Be sure and check the rules at the end of this post so you are eligible for our grand prize.

Speaking of prizes, our fun and fabulous sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

 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 Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
