SSW 186: Bugaboo

Happy day AFTER Christmas!  

I hope today finds you relaxing and enjoying the calm of it not being a major holiday!  I know that for me, the pressure of creating the "perfect" holiday experience for my family can be exhausting.  Curse you Martha Stewart!! 

This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we are hosted by  Jodi from Bugaboo.  She's offering up SEVEN digi images for the winning card this week.  

Arlana's sketch is so darn cute that it was really easy to whip something up.  So join in the fun and upload your card to the Sweet Sketch blog.  You could find that you are this week's big winner.


  1. Great post this week at SSW. What a fun card, the tools are just the perfect embellishments. Have a very Happy New Year.
    Hugs, Heide

  2. Hi Joanna so much hype up to Christmas and the day goes so quickly....It was so hot and humid here that you didn't feel like eating the meal that you had just prepared. Love your card my three favourite Bugaboo Characters are JJ, Stella and Guss. Love your card and Gusses tool box it's the perfect masculine card. Great colours and wonderful embellishments. Hope your shift went well and you've now settled into your new home. Happy New Year.

  3. Love your card Joanna and love this sketch. Your coloring is fabulous and of course I love the great and fun image.

  4. I hear ya about the stress of the holidays!! We scaled ours back quite a bit and surprising, everyone was okay with that!! Fabulous card!! Gotta love Gus! I love your tool embellies too. Happy New Year to you!


  5. Yes, so much work for it to go by so quickly. I am tired when it is all over. Today was a really long day at work. I love your card.. Gus is so funny and it love how you used the tools on the side panel. I hope the rest of the week is relaxing for you. Have a wonderful and Happy New Year!!
    Hugs, Nancy

  6. Hi Joanna - love your card - the tool embellishments are awesome!! Are you all moved in now?? You have been SO BUSY!! Wishing you a calm New Year filled with many Blessings!!

  7. Love this image, sentiment and the tool images are perfect too! LOL And yes ... we do make a lot of fuss over making everything perfect, don't we?! that's not what its all about I try to tell myself, but there are still so many traditions (making cards, cookies, fudge, etc) that I rush to get done every year. I do hope to get a jump on the cards this year though. Hope you are resting now :)

  8. Love the expression on his face and your tool detail Joanna, great colour combo too.
