Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 137

Week 137 
DigiStamp Boutique

Welcome everyone it's Kathie posting this week from Auckland New Zealand the City of Sails and we are in the middle of our summer.  Long summers nights, BBQ's and the children swimming at the beach that sunshine feels so good and we feel so revitalized!!!

Can you believe it we are half way through January already?  It only feels like yesterday we were all getting ready and of course excited because Christmas was only around the corner.  I was in a shop on Saturday and they had Valentines stock and Easter Eggs for sale!!!   I'm only getting over having a house full of guests for Christmas and Christmas shopping.


Chocolate Treats
Easter Eggs no72854

My boys eat very little sweets, my youngest has just started liking White Chocolate but hates brown Chocolate and he's 10 and Liam isn't a big sweet eater either but does love Chocolate and Caramel filled Eggs.  Even at 10 and 12 years old they still love Easter Egg hunts in the garden and their Christmas Stockings.

What an amazing array of cards this week from our dedicated followers.  Every week you amaze me with your wonderful creations and last week was know exception.
So, without further delay

Our Grand Prize Winner for last week is:
