Sketch 156

Hi Everyone and welcome to another challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Firstly our winner from the last challenge sponsored by Cute as A Button is
Aunty Sue with this card. Please contact us using the email on the right to claim your prize and grab your winners badge from the sidebar.

Here is our sketch for this fortnight

We are happy for you to change the oval to a circle if you wish.

Our prize this fortnight is some spring flower stamps, apparently it's officially the first day of spring here in the UK tomorrow so I suppose that that is appropriate.

We are excited to welcome a new member of our design team this challenge.
Please welcome AJ!
Her blog is at where she shows off her talent.

Here is the card AJ created for this challenge

Kathie created these cards

Kelly created this card

Sketch 155 sponsored by Cute as a Button

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. We are so glad that you visited us and hope that you feel inspired to play along with this our latest sketch.
We have had a bit of summer and a bit of winter here in the UK over the last week or so, it was nearly 20 degrees on Monday of last week and in contrast there was sleet landing on my windscreen on the way home from work on Monday. I hope that wherever you are in the world that the weather is being kind to you.

So onto the winner of last week, it's Teresa with this sweet creation.

Please email me at with your postal address and I will get your prize off to you, and please help yourself to your winners badge from the sidebar.

We didn't have enough entries for a top 3 last time so onto this weeks challenge. It's very straightforward and great for using up your scraps.

We are sponsored by Francesca from

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’  Numbers 6:26

Here is Kathie's sketch

Now onto this fortnights winner and the lucky person is

with two cards, one with the original sketch shapes and the other just swapped the circle for a rectangle!
