SSW2-13 Meljen's Designs

Welcome back to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It's Joanna from colorful Colorado as your hostess this week. My youngest, 26 other kids from his class and I recently went to this cool site in Colorado Springs.   I spent the morning answering questions, finding water bottles, and putting band-aids on the boo-boos of this rambunctious bunch of 3rd graders (who frankly are like cats if you are trying to herd them along a hiking trail!)  I was exhausted by the end of the field trip!  But, if you are ever in this area, it is definitely worth a stop.

Since our sponsor last week was Dearie Dolls, and all of Mary Ellen's images are FREE, we are ALL winners!  But some of our very favorite cards from last week's participants are ...

#5  Bettina
#7  Amy A
#14 Renate

You guys should also grab your badge from our sidebar for your blog.  We are so lucky to have such great artists stop by and participate each week.  Selecting favorites is always difficult because we have gorgeous work posted!  We are still so grateful that you guys continue to stop by the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog and share your gorgeous creations each week.

And now, the moment that we've all been waiting for ... here is Sally's sketch for this week.  I'm not going to lie, I was intimidated by all the shapes at first.  But as I started to work with it, I starting LOVING my card.  I really do hope you give it a try.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Melissa from Meljen’sDesigns
We all love creating with Melissa’s darling digi stamps. The Grand Prize winner of this week’s challenge will receive four non-colored digi stamps from Meljen’s Designs – a terrific prize!  Now here’s a little info about the artist behind these terrific images:
