It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!! and News!



Good Wednesday morning my friends....you are seeing my post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I am showing it on Wednesday instead of next week....told you I would post it earlier in the week, lol. I am now on the wonderful DT that makes up the ladies of SSW and am so happy and honored to be part of their lovely group. I have enjoyed playing along with them for a while and hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards made with their sketches, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when Nancy contacted me to see if I would be interested in at DT spot. Of course I jumped at the chance and said a resounding YES....


This week's sketch is sponsored  by Digistamp Boutique with a prize of 6 free digi stamps to the winner.




I chose Sally Ann's image "Modern Flower Head 3" and after copying it 3 times and rotating it slightly I die cut it with my Spellbinders. The 3 blooms to the side are also part of this set. I really like how this turned out and love working with Arlana's sketches....here's hoping you will join us this week and give our challenge a try. We would love to see what you create.



Be sure and stop by at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and give the DT a look....you will love what they have come up with for this week.  Thanks for stopping by to visit and happy day to you all!!
