Hello and welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
I'm Kathie from New Zealand and I'm posting this month in lockdown on this beautiful Autumn (Fall) day.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you who entered our challenge last month and previous months supporting our challenge blog.  I know it's a team effort and it was so lovely to see so many new followers entering our challenge and also the faithful supporters that are with us every month, we do appreciate your support and if it wasn't for you we too could be like a lot of other challenge blogs that have closed down over the years.
Thank you so much from the
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 team.


This month we have two new sketches I do hope you like them.  If I had to rate them from Easy, Medium and Hard these two are Easy.

Sketch # 182

Sketch #183 

If you ever need to ask questions about my sketches or have problems with them, please email me as I am delighted to help you.  

This month our sponsor is 
Sheepski Designs 

We are so happy to have Andrea sponsor us, she has so many wonderful and varied designs in her Etsy Shop

Jodie's Bio
Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the work of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.
