Sweet Sketch Wednesday 123-57 and Sassy Cheryl's

Hi there Sweet Sketch Wednesday followers. This is Michelle posting this week for.....


I'm posting from Buxton, Derbyshire, England and I am the newbie DT member. I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying my time with this wonderful team. Before I was invited to be part of the DT I was regularly playing along with the SSW challenges and looked forward to every single Wednesday to see what wonderful sketch Arlana would have ready for me and everyone else to use. I got a place in the Top Three one week, then a bit further down the line I actually won a challenge. I was totally thrilled and flattered I can tell you. It certainly boosted my confidence and then to top it all off I was invited to be on the DT!!!!!!

This time I haven't anything special to tell but, once it's my turn to post again, I would like to tell you a little about Buxton and show some pictures and then sometime in the future give you all a peep at my Craft Room which is definately not as neat and organised as Patti's!!!!

For those of you who are new to our blog, we welcome you to the
Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge! We are so happy to have you join us! And for our loyal followers of Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we welcome you back and thank you for your ongoing support!!!
