Sweet Sketch Wednesdays #198

Hi Friends and  Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays.  It is Heide here from cold and snowy Michigan. We have just a few more day until Spring and I am seeing signs of Spring and warmer weather,  the Robins are arriving and I have some plant close to the house popping up and even the Forsythia bushes are changing. I do not know about you other Northerners but, I am so ready for sunshine and warmth!  It has been a very long Winter. 
 I am your hostess this week here at SSW. We are happy to have you join us this week. Our Wonderful friend and  sponsor for this week  is Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique. She is generous enough to give this weeks winner 6 free digi images.

If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays a BIG welcome to you and we are looking forward to see your creations and for those that are returning we are always happy to see you here at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays and love to see what you do with the sketch.

Another great sketch this week by our own Sally Dube.  Be sure to check the rules for the challenge at the bottom of this post - we want everyone to be eligible for the Grand Prize!

Here is a little something about Sally Ann and Digi StampBoutique.
All images/designs are created and copyright owned by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.



We hope these samples inspire you to create and join in our challenge this week.

  9. Hi everyone from a wonderful warm sunny Auckland New Zealand. Well Autumn has started but thank goodness there's no sign of it yet. I do hope we don't follow in the same footsteps as the Northern Hemisphere with the wind, the cold and the snow here in New Zealand. That would dampen my spirits after our very long hot summer.
    Congratulations to our winner Stacy last week and to our Top 3 cards awesome work ladies. Thank you to Sally-Ann for your continual support being our monthly sponsor and to Sally for another great sketch. Thanks Heide for this weeks great posting. Take care everyone wishing you all a wonderful week crafting.
