SSW 168-121 and Bugaboo Stamp

Well, school has been in full swing for a couple of days now and we sure have been busy...I think that the year will go well and my kiddos sure are cuties!

We have a wonderful sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
Bugaboo 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.

SSW 165-58 A Day for Daisies

Wow! I can't believe that July is already over! Where did the time go? That just means that I am now only a couple of weeks away from starting the madness again and having to go back to work...yikes!
This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we have a great sponsor: A Day for Daisies! I love their images! Here's a little more about them:

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!

Here is the sketch for the week! I hope you have fun with it!

Here's my card! This image, "Little League" brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. Going to baseball games was very common in our family, either watching pro games or even to go watch my brother play. It was also a lot of fun to see my nephew play as well. I hope that my son (of course, a few years from now) will want to play as well.
