It's a NEW Challenge at Bugaboo - Stella Says Sketch!

Hi, everyone!
You've seen the teaser badge on my sidebar for a few weeks now, and it's finally here!
Catch the Bug Challenge Blog is rolling out with a new, bi-weekly, challenge......and it's ALL sketches! Woohoo! How cool is that?! 
before I move on to that......I have a couple other things to tell you, too!
First - today is my birthday! is! It's a milestone birthday, too! I am super excited because not only are we starting a sketch challenge today, but I am also super-happy to announce that I'm no longer a guest designer at Bugaboo, but a full-fledged member of the team! Woohoo! I was so excited when the team invited me to stay on! Bugaboo has always been my favorite, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate my day than to be able to make this announcement! :0) (I'm betting those bold letters caught your attention, too, didn't they?! lol!)
Okay, enough of that from me.....
Today is our maiden sketch voyage, and I'm sure you're anxious to get started on your challenge entry, so here's the sketch:

Here's what I've created using this great sketch by Bugaboo's very own...Min (she rocks!).

I have to tell you.....I scratched my head on what I was going to do with this sketch for a couple weeks when I saw it. I don't know why because once I started working on my card, it all just clicked! I love it when that happens! 
Coffee is so yummy-licious, and I adore the coffee images in the Bugaboo store, so
I've used two of my new Bugaboo Stamps images for this card: Coffee Bean - Coffee Spoon & Coffee Time - May Your Cup . I colored them in PSE, printed and cropped. I printed the sentiment on a full sheet of white, then cut to size for my card base. My designer papers are some old Sizzix papers I have in my stash ( I LOVE these!). I used a MS border punch, and a few rhinestones from my stash to complete my card.

Now that you've been inspired ( I hope!), why not head over to the Bugaboo Stamps store and pick up these cuties for yourself?
While you're there, don't miss the Daily Deal that Jodie has posted, and be sure to check back every day for a new "doesn't get any better than this!" price on some super sweet Bugaboo images!
I'd love to see you enter in the challenge over at Catch the Bug, too!  The challenge blog is also where you can find out all the lastest "dish" on what challenges are happening and what other challenge sites that Bugaboo is sponsoring (more chances to win some free Bugaboo!). It's also where you can check out all the other fantastic DT projects, including the OBG (Oldie But Goodie) stuff, the ABC (Anything But a Card) items, and the Tuesday New so much more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting!
