...Talk About Recycling !

I have a fun birthday card to show you today for the start of the new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! This week our sponsor is Bugaboo and I thought this hysterical image would be appreciated by one of my co-workers that runs our recycling and waste reduction efforts!  But first let's show the fantastic sketch for the challenge this week.

Isn't this sketch drawn by our Sally just terrific? I love the look of it when using a variety of papers and patterns. Lots can be done with the embellishments too as our design team is showing this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Who doesn't love the fun images that Jodi creates for Bugaboo Stamps? I have to admit that her Stella character cracks me up and with her sentiments, I can totally relate to each one of them!  If you love them as much as we do at Sweet Sketch Wednesday you'll have to play along this week because the Grand Prize Winner will receive seven free digis totaling $21 as the prize.  Thanks for your generous sponsorship Jodi!

This fun stamp from Bugaboo is called Stella Birthday-29 Again and it makes for a chuckle or two on a birthday card, especially for us middle-age folks! Here it was colored with Copic markers and the bright papers used are from My Mind's Eye Happy Day collection. The flowers were made with a variety of SU punches and flower brads from my stash.

Now, as I mentioned, the design team creations this week with this sketch are just outstanding and very creative - sure to inspire you to join us in the challenge.  Pop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by!
