SEPTEMBER AT SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY 2

Hello and welcome back dear crafty friends,

It's  Kathie here this month from New Zealand - and this month I'm the hostess.
Every month, we have 2 lovely sketches for you, designed by myself.  And also a twist that you can use, but don't have to use!

For the month of September, it's either Spring in the Southern Hemisphere or Autumn or  Fall in the Northern Hemisphere - what ever the season we would love to see what you love about your chosen seasons.

Of course, you can rotate and/or flip the sketches - but we should still recognize them from the original sketches.

Here are this month's sketches.

Sketch #236

Sketch #237


 Now it's time to grab a tea or coffee and have a look at the fantastic inspirations that were created by our design team just for you.

A few of the design team are taking a break for house moves and holidays so not everyone has created this month.

Here are Anne's cards

Firstly using sketch 236 and inspired by Spring


 and with sketch 237 thinking of Summer


Here are Kelly's cards
 
Sketch #236 featuring Happy Camper for a Summer Vibe
 
 
and Sketch 237 featuring Fairy Fun Fall for a fall vibe!



We have no guest designer this month, we usually offer a guest spot to our winner as well as a crafty prize so do check to see if you have won.

August at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome back dear crafty friends,

I'm Doris - known as Kleido - and this month I'm the hostess.
As every month, we have 2 fabulous sketches for you, designed by Kathie.  And also a twist that you can use, but don't have to use!

Since August is not only my birthday month but also for most of my teamies, we would like to see lions as an option - whether one lion or several lions is up to you. So don't hesitate and show us your most beautiful paws. 😉

Of course, you can also rotate and/or flip the sketches - but we should still recognize them.

Please check out the winner's tab for last month's 

winner and Top 3.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY

                                     Good morning followers and welcome to                             Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. 

  Thank you for the beautiful entries we received last month and you can find the winner and top 3 over in the winner's tab.

Please make sure you look at the Winners and Top 3 & 5 in case your name is there ???  You have until 6th August to claim any prizes and then Anne will be doing a redraw.

For some of you,  you are enjoying a wonderful summer; for myself and other followers, you may be in the Southern Hemisphere and in the middle of winter.  I decided in my old age that I prefer Autumn and Spring rather than the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter.

Now onto this month's sketches, we have two for you and both are very straightforward and would rate the difficulty as Easy.

Sketch # 232


Sketch #233


We have an optional twist this month which is Christmas in July.

 There are only 173 days to Christmas.

I chose the theme months ago and I forgot all about the theme when making my cards let alone wondering who was creating this month's posting until I realised it was me.

We have some wonderful creations this month from our dedicated design team.

Kleido 
Has wonderful Christmas and Gingerbread wishes from Germany.




Anne
Has Snowman wishes and silver snow from England.




Kelly
Has a Whale of Christmas wishes from Canada.



Kathie
 Has a Penguin Christmas wish from New Zealand.





Olga
 will be back soon as she is in the middle of moving house.

This month's prize is some lovely Butterfly Dies to embellish your cards and scrapbook pages with.  I have a set of these, they are my favourite Butterfly dies.  Here are some examples.

                                                                                          
                


Thank you for playing along with us and we look forward to seeing what you create this month, please do remember that our twist is always optional.

Stay safe and best wishes from
Kathie and the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 design team.

May at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome back!  

I'm Kelly and I will be hosting this month!  We have two fabulous new sketches for you from Kathie as well as the option of a twist.  


The twist this month is April Showers Bring May Flowers and my gosh I hope that is true.  I live in Southern Alberta and it is so so dry here, we desperately need some rain....in turn, I'm hoping for some lovely flowers this summer.  The twist is optional so you do not have to incorporate it along with one of the sketches, but if you feel inclined, that's great!

Now we have some wonderful inspiration from our design team.
 
First up , please welcome

The prize this month will be a Close To My Heart gift pack that I will send to one lucky person!  I sure hope you will join us!
