Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 203-44 - Bugaboo Stamps

Welcome Wednesday!!  Hey there friends, I hope you are all ready for a new Sketch Challenge here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  It's Sally posting from Massachusetts, sandwiched between Boston and Cape Cod!!  We have had quite a week with all of the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing.  The support that has been felt from not only around the US, but also from around the World has been amazing!!  We live in a world where we are faced with so many trials, and I am so thankful to see how people rally together to help those who are hurting and to support one another from both near and far.  So from my little corner of Boston, Thank you to all for your thoughts and prayers!!  Boston Strong!!

I am so glad you have stopped by to check out our Challenge!!

On to our Challenge...  This week we are revisiting a wonderful Sketch by Arlana...

And, we are Sponsored by the wonderful Jodie of Bugaboo Stamps!!  Let me share with you... 

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
