Sweet Sketch Wednesday #55

Good morning sweet bloggers!

Terry here to take you to our next deliciously sweet sketch which has been designed by our fabulous and talented Arlana! She's such a whiz at creating these wonderful sketches - I don't know how she does it but it sure takes all the guess work out for me when I'm designing a card!

First, I would like to announce the winner of last weeks sketch #54, to which KLM Designs sponsored with a beautiful prize. The winner is: #2 Stephanie

Congratulations! Please email Arlana at and she will direct you as to how to receive your prize!!

How cool is this week's sketch? Doesn't it just make you want to get started? But wait - there's more!

As always, Arlana has lined up a super fantastic sponsor, Shirley's 2 Girls! This week, the winner of this challenge will win a $10 Gift Certificate! How sweet it is! Now, what do you need to do to win this fabulous prize?

To play along this week, it's simple:

1. Create a card using the sketch of the week. You may use any stamp or element you have to create your card, although if you have any of Shirley's 2 Girls images, we'd love to see what you create with them.
2. If posting to an online gallery such as Splitcoast Stampers, please use Sweet Sketch along with this week's number, #55.
3. Add a link on your blog about Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

4. Post your card along with the link.

5. Sign in to INLINKZ and add a direct link back to your site.

6. Leave the Design Team some sweet comments as we love hearing from you.

To get you started, here's a delicious sampling of what the design team has created to inspire you.













I would like to thank Lisa at Paper and Paw Prints again. This will be her last week on the design team. Also I would like to thank Kym at Kym's Kreations. They have both been very dedicated and sweet design team members. We hope you will continue to visit their blogs and see their sweet cards.

I would like to thank all of those who entered into the DT call . We had a lot of ladies try out for this. It was a very hard decision. But I want to thank you for applying and hope that you will continue to play along.
I would like to welcome the new DT to Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Kathie will be joining us starting next week.
Thanks for joining the team.
