Sweet Sketch Wednesday 210 and Stamp-n-Doodle

Good morning and welcome to SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY.
This is Nancy from Northern Arizona as your hostess this week.  The temperatures are starting to climb here in Arizona.  We reached nearly 100 degrees yesterday.  But, even with the hot temperatures, it is still a very lovely place to live.  Below, are some of the wonderful sites you can see here.
