Gone Fishin'
Sweet Sketch 151
Sponsor: Bugaboo

Hello Sweet Bloomin Scraps followers!  We have a wonderful sponosr this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Jodie, the owner of Bugaboo Stamps, is our sponsors and has been a wonderful support to Arlana and our Sweet Sketch Wednesday Design Team.  We love Jodie's creativity and know that you will too.  We have watched her shop grow over the last 2 1/2 years.  Thanks, Jodie, we love you!

We hope you will take a few moments and look around the Bugaboo shop and find a few images you would love to create with.  Every Friday Bugaboo offers a Freebie just for you.  Check it out!

Grab Arlana's SSW Sketch below and play along this week at SSW!  You will have a chance to be our Grand Prize Winner and win
7 digi stamps from Bugaboo that value $21

My card this week is made with Bugaboo's AKV Fish image. I made it while I was visiting Arlana in March. The little fish had a pink dorsal fin so I used a Copic marker and colored it red. I chose not to color the other pink portion of the fish as it was covered with glitter. Thanks, Arlana, you always have such fun embellishments in your amazing craft room!

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.

A Tribute to My Dad
Sweet Sketch 149
Sponsor:  Digi Doodle Shop

When I saw this image, In The Garden, at Digi Doodle Shop, it reminded me so much of my father.  He raised a garden every summer until he was 90 years old....just three years before his passing.  He taught all of his children so many things about life using analogies from the garden.  What a man!  Thanks, Dad, for your wonderful words of wisdom!
I made this card while I was visiting Arlana in March...and created this little lettuce or cabbage head using the matching paper and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  It took lots of scrunching from me and Arlana but I think we finally got the look I wanted.  Then I used the MS Fence border punch to fence in the garden.  I masked off the image and sponged the soil and sky.
What a fun and easy sketch!  Thanks, Arlana!

Digi Doodle Shop is the results 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 then 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.

Judy and Joy

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your week!
