Sweet Sketch Wednesday 143 and Doodle Pantry

Good Morning Sweet Sketch Wednesday Followers.
This is Nancy posting this week from Northern Arizona.
We have had a touch of spring in my part of the world.....I am not sure where winter went.  We sure didn't have much of it.
Do you realize that in a couple of weeks it will be St. Patrick's Day and daylight savings time.  Is Daylight savings time world wide or is it just in the United States?  Hummm.  Here in Arizona, our time stays the same.  In the winter time, I am on the same time as my sister Arlana and in the summer, I am on the same time as my sister Judi.  It is a little crazy.  I remember as a kid we would play outside until 10 pm at night because it would still be light enough to do so.  The bad part about it is that in the winter it is dark by 4:30-5:00 pm.  That wasn't fun at all.  Just a little tidbit about daylight savings time....I am sure you wanted to know, right??

Well, let's get going.......

We have a fabulous sponsor this week.  "Laurie" from

“I am simply thrilled and so thankful to be able to sponsor Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge! We have a wide variety of whimsical characters as well as realistic scenery, floral images, scriptures and a small selection of digitally pre-coloured images. My digital doodles have a special place in my life, and I enjoy the opportunity to share them with everyone at affordable prices.”
The GRAND PRIZE WINNER will receive:  3 digi images
