A Special Comment from Arlana

Hello Fellow Sweet Sketch Wednesday Fans

It’s so hard to believe that I have come this far in my venture of having a sketch blog. I never dreamed that I would end up with over 400 followers. It’s also hard to believe that I have made 100 sketches. It has been so much fun having you follow me in this journey.  When starting this journey my goal was to provide a site for my followers to come to and just have fun and be inspired. I have always loved to share my talent of crafting. In the beginning I did not like digi's but the more I used them the more I started to like them. Now I rarely pick up a rubber stamp. I want to thank my weekly sponsors. They have helped me to make this blog a success. Without them you would not have prizes. A special thanks goes out to my dedicated Design Team. They’re the ones who always leave you SWEET comments and have such inspiring cards for you to view each week.  Last but not least, I thank my two sisters who keep me organized and up and running each and every week. Then to you my fellow followers, I hope you keep playing along and creating to your heart’s content. Hope you enjoy the blog hop.  Happy Celebration!
