Dreaming of Peppermints and Gumdrops

Yay - it's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday! I love Wednesdays for the mid-week, heading down the slope toward the weekend and for the new challenge starting at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  This week we have a terrific sketch and Bugaboo is the sponsor.

Here's the sketch for the week.  It's another one from the past - this time a favorite from week 51 that we're bringing back for you to play with again.

Bugaboo is the proud sponsor of the challenge this week and I know you all love a chance to win 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.

Catch the Bug Challenge blog:
The Grand Prize winner of the challenge will receive 7 free digis from Bugaboo - a fabulous prize!  All you have to do is create a card or papercraft project using the sketch, enter the challenge and leave a comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and you're in the running to win!  Play along won't you?

I choose this Bugaboo image called "Christmas Brat Boy Elf" for my design team card. He was colored with Copics and the papers are from Martha Stewart from a couple Christmas' ago.  I love how he looks perched on edge of the oval panel - it looks like he's just day-dreaming about all the candy peppermints and gum drops surrounding him!

Now to see more Bugaboo images used with this sketch, pop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday where the design team has a wonderfully creative selection of cards that will inspire you.  Hope to see you play in the challenge this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon, your card is absolutely fabulous!! You always do such an amazing job coloring up your images. I love your papers for this adorable little elf. He is so perfectly purched on the oval. Hope all is well in your part of the world. We did get a little more snow last night. It is all headed your way. Winter hit us a little early this year. We usually don't get snow until January. Have a great week.

He is a cutie and I don't believe he is a brat, maybe just a little naughty. Love those papers. Hope you are doing well and looking forward to the last week countdown to Christmas. Hope your weekend is wonderful.
