Sweet Sketch Wednesday125 and Bugaboo

My grand-daughter and grandson just started playing soccer again this fall. My grand-daughter is getting very good at soccer.  This is her fourth or fifth year playing. It is really exciting to watch her play. She is getting a good handle on the game for the most part.  This is my grandson's first year.  I love it when they are first starting out. It is so fun to watch the "bee hive" move up and down the field.  You just can't help but laugh, they are so cute.  They really aren't sure what they are doing. It is just fun for them to run up and down the field and hope that one of them kicks it into the net.   I forgot to take my camera with me this week.  I will get some pictures later to share.
Anyway, this image called "BB Soccer Girl" reminded me of my grandkids and I just had to use it. I think it makes a great birthday card. What do you think?

Our sponsor this week over at SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY  is one of our favorites. 

BUGABOO STAMPS. Our grand prize winner this week will receive (7) seven free digis.

Wow, what a great prize.  I hope you will stop by and join us.  Our DT has made some fabulous cards for you this week.  Two our our Design Team members are featured on Bugaboo Stamps this week.
What a treat to be able to be spotlighted with their DT.

I had to try one of Deanne's (one of our former DT members) flower techniques this week. She always makes the most gorgeous flowers.

My second image is called:  "Monster Truck"  I got this image from Bugaboo when it was a freebie.  Jodi is always offering freebies each friday.  You won't want to miss out. They are adorable.

The sentiments that I used for my" Monster Truck" Birthday card is computer generated.  I used paper from a DCWV paper stack and Stampin Up, Scenic Route and K & Company for both cards.  I used the Cuttle Bug, star embossing folder and frayed the edges of the paper on the Monster Truck card  to make it look a little rugged.  I used Copic marker on both cards.


I hope you enjoy my cards this week
