Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch #128

Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday! This is Sharon from the design team posting this week on my one year anniversary of being part of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday team. The year has flown by and I enjoy creating with the weekly sketches so much.  But the best part of the year has been the friendships with the SSW team and our extended team -- which is all of you that participate in the challenges and share your friendship with us and your incredible talent. Thanks for a terrific year!

Now if this is your first visit here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we extend to you a warm welcome and our open arms of online friendship. If you are a returning friend, we greet you with a hearty smile and hugs - pull up a chair and spend some time with us!

Now, let’s announce the Grand Prize winner and Top Three for last week's sketch challenge #127. Drumroll please.....

Now on to the terrific sketch this week and a fun sponsor too. Take a look....

Here's that super sketch, created by our own Arlana Patten - with it's many layers, it's a great one to show off papers and embellishments. This is Sketch 128 - can you believe we've had that many and all of them so much fun to create with!

And, we're so happy to welcome back Digi Stamp Boutique as our sponsor and monthly favorite.  Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique has been sponsoring Sweet Sketch Wednesday from the very beginning and is always so very generous with the prize for the Grand Prize winner.  This week, the Grand Prize winner will receive 6 free digi stamps of their choice from Digi Stamp Boutique. Thanks Sally Ann for your wonderful support of Sweet Sketch Wednesday and this lovely prize.

Please visit the Digi Stamp Boutique store to see the fabulous selection of images that are offered there. 

Now to inspire you further, here are the samples created by the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team using Digi Stamp Boutique images....

  17. Hello everyone, I just had to take a moment to say how much I love the cards this week and also last week. The last two weeks I have been caring for my sweet little granddaughter who has and still has a double ear infection..She is on her fourth antibiotic...not an easy thing for such a little one. Then to top it off my daughter was in a rear end collision. Life can bring many surprises when least expected.
    Congrats to Sharon for your one year mark with SSW! We do love and appreciate all of our DT and the work they produce to help inspire all of us. Congrats to our winners the past two weeks also! Thanks to all of our follower. We love your creations too! As I have been working on the new schedule for 2012 I have been reviewing all of the sketches and Arlana, you totally amaze me with all the fun sketches that we get to play with. Happy Thanksgiving week to all of you who are celebrating! It will be a busy one for me and I'm sure for many of you!
