Our sponsor this week is the fun and fabulous Sassy Cheryl's. So many adorable images, you really must check 'em out!

"Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.
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."

Sassy Cheryl's is offering our winner a $5 gift certificate for her store! Thank you so much for sponsoring us this week!! 

Here is what the awesomely creative Design Team did with some Sassy Cheryl's images:
