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!


Optional Twist - April Showers bring May Flowers

Sketch 229

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

Tina as our Guest Designer

 

 

 






 

 
 
 
 
 




 


 




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!

Olga used a really elegant image of a ballerina

Kleido has gone with the Easter Bunny for her 2 cards

Kathie's Cards
On the first card, the image is from an unknown source
