Sweet Sketch Wednesdays #148

      Happy Wednesday to all of our great followers and to those that have just found us!
   It is Heide here from Michigan I am having a lovely week, we have no school, no work and just enjoying a nice quite week.
This weekend my son competed in the State Drum-line tournament and they did so good! It was quite a show and I am happy to say our school got 2nd  place. Our show is called "Stuck" and the kids have done such a fabulous job. They put so much work and practice into this,  it is amazing! The 3rd week in April they head down to Ohio to competed in regionals. Lets keep our fingers crossed for them!
Here is a picture, my son he is on the cymbals this year, he hopes to be on the snare drum next year.

 Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week. Here is a little bio from Cheryl:
 I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about twelve years ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits.  It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!  It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)

Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images.

Thanks for playing along this week… happy coloring!
