Sweet Sketch Wednesday 221-163: Bugaboo

This card makes me laugh and think of one person ... it's YOU Melanie, my favorite martini drinking friend.

In case you haven't already guessed, this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we are once again sponsored by Jodi and the gang over at Bugaboo.  Love them and the fabulous digis available at their store.  Although Jodi always generously gives us an image to work with, I usually find 5 that I want!  I think I must be one of her BEST customers!  Stella is one of my very favorite Bugaboo friends; in fact she helps me "update" my cart far too often!  This week Jodie is offering her usual AMAZING prize of seven, yep (7!!) digis to the winner.

And speaking of favorites ... the sketch is a fan favorite too.  It's from last July.  If you haven't ever gone back through old blog posts, I highly recommend it.  It's kinda fun to see what everyone did with the sketch last time around!  To take the "time warp," click here!

Remember, in order to be eligible for this week's fabulous prize, you must comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.  Good luck!


  1. The olives are inspire Joanna. Perfect card this week.

    Hope you have a great week.


  2. Too funny Joanna. Love the layers and colors and the olives are perfect. Stella is my favorite, too!

  3. Your card Joanna is fantabulous!!! I love Stella and all her wise cracks! Those olives along the side are way to clever. It was fun going back and seeing what was done with this sketch the first time around too, thanks for the link.


  4. Your card is SO cute!! Love how you did your olives!!

    1. Janet: I used a round punch but then when I tried putting them on, I realized that the olives should have been more oval. I just used a pair of scissors to mush them down. I wanted them to look more like Jodi's olives!

  5. Joanna, such a clever card. I love the green olives. Such a cute idea. Stella always cracks me up and you have really made her come to life in this card. Super, duper!!
    Hugs, Nancy
