SSW 234 Eureka Stamps!

Good morning everyone! It's Joanna from Colorado as your hostess this week.  I wanted to share some of flowers I picked up at the Farmer's Market this week.  I don't know why but Sunflowers are some of my favorite flowers.  They just make me feel think of Fall and make me happy.  Lucky for me, they are plentiful in the area that I live.

I know that everyone here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday would like to wish our American friends an (early) Happy Thanksgiving!

Our grand prize winner from last week is...

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, Eureka Stamps as our sponsor. They offer a little bit of everything in their store.  I think it's fair to say that there is definitely something for everyone!  Here is a bit more about them:

Finally, The Stamps You've been Looking for! Eureka Stamps offers a large variety of images and sentiments in many different categories for all of your stamping needs. Our Paper Sculpting stamps add an extra dimension to your creations. Or, Mix and match our Balloons and Balloon Holders to celebrate every occasion. Our Stamps are available as unmounted, deep etched, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps.

  13. Hello ladies, thought I would check in! The past two months have been filled with excitement....a wedding planned for Hong Kong but it actually happened in Salt Lake City, then a week long trip to Hong Kong and then home again to plan for my son and daughter in law's reception.....while I was fighting a cold from Hong Kong. Better now! Thanks goodness! The reception turned out well. Then Thanksgiving arrived with 21 guests. After the clean up from those two event I nearly have the house decorated for a church Christmas dinner for the ladies only. Then I move on to my son's birthday and did I mention that Christmas will be happening soon! I have not even had time to think about Christmas this year! I'm actually starting to relax a bit but I probably should still be in panic mode.
    All of the cards are lovely this week. Thanks Joanna for your post. I love sunflowers too! I would love to see a field of them! Thanks to Eureka Stamps for sponsoring us this week! I love the images that have been used! Have a wonderful December!
    Hugs, Judi
