Sweet Sketch Wednesday #233 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Hi there!!  It's Sally hosting from Massachusetts, home of the Pilgrims!!  Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving??  I was driving through Plymouth today and saw that their Thanksgiving parade will take place on Saturday.  Have any of you visited Plymouth?  So many get such a kick out of seeing Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower.  I think visitors are so surprised when they see the size of the rock, much smaller than one would imagine...  I thought I'd share a few pictures I took not too long ago on a visit to Plymouth with my Great Nephew Axel...

I can't imagine what it must have been like for the Pilgrim's travelling on the Mayflower to a new land...  So many crammed into that small ship...

Well, I guess it's time to share this week's Sketch with you all, but first... a word or two about our Sponsor!  This being the third Wednesday of the month means our Sponsor is Sally-Ann Hancock of Digi Stamp Boutique!!  She has so many adorable images to choose from, I never order just one ;-)

Here is a little about Digi Stamp Boutique:
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.  

You can check out Sally-Ann's images by clicking HERE!  Each month she features new images and often has some special pricing!!  Visit often!!

This week's Winner will receive a £10 voucher to her shop!!
