Sketch 160

Hello everyone and welcome to
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

If you're new to SSW2 a very large warm welcome and if you're one of our regular returning friends thank you so much for coming back and visiting us.
It's Kathie here this fortnight from an autumn's day here in New Zealand.  Autumn has really set in now as the temperatures have dropped in the evenings and I can feel the cooler air at night.  We've also had the much-needed rain that we were all wanting now I've had enough.  

Now onto last fortnights winner for 
Sketch 159

It's Lisa Lynn
I love this wonderful brightly coloured card it's so cheerful and feels like summer.
Lisa, please email Anne
 anne_ssw2@aol.co.uk
to claim your prize.


Now onto this fortnights sketch
Sketch #160
I do hope you like it and I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations.

This fortnight we are unsponsored, unfortunately so if you are a sponsor looking at our site or know of sponsors that would like to sponsor SSW2 we would be very grateful as we are finding more and more sponsors are turning away from giving away free images, as prizes and the design team members.  

So because we don't have a sponsor doesn't mean you can't enter.
Personally, as a designer, I would rather have the recognition
of being worthy of a Top 3 than claiming a prize. 

Now it on with the show checking out what our fabulous 
design team have created just for you.
Anne
Such a pretty feminine card.

Kelly

Love this wishing well Kelly and how you've turned this sketch works perfectly.

Kathie

My card using this super cute Mice from Di's Digi Images

AJ

AJ also turned the sketch to fit her image perfectly.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's creation in the next fortnight wishing everyone happy crafting.

Sketch 159 with Bugaboo!!

Hello and happy May Day to you all.

Image result for maypole dancing uk

As I typed that greeting whilst wondering where the last 4 months have gone, I was transported back to infant school where I had so hoped to be chosen to dance around the maypole on May Day but ended up Morris Dancing. All of us girls wore gathered skirts with Ric Rac trim, I remember mine was bright orange, and the school were still using them 20 years later when my friend's daughter attended.

Anyway onto our winners from the last challenge. We had some gorgeous entries and really enjoyed visiting your blogs but unfortunately, there can only be one winner and the winner of the stamp set is 
Margreet with this card


Please, email me with your postal address and I will get your prize off to you.

Now onto this weeks sketch which is another interesting one for you. I so look forward to seeing what you create with it.


Here is what the fabulous DT have created.

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.

Sketch #157 with Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello everyone and welcome to
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

If you're new to SSW2 a very large warm welcome and if you're one of our regular returning friends thank you so much for coming back and visiting us.
It's Kathie here this fortnight from an autumn's day here in New Zealand.
I live in the North Island which is the warmer of the three islands.  We aren't part of Australia nor are we joined onto Australia which I've been asked by followers in the past.  I do hope that everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is enjoying your first month of spring and getting ready for summer.  If your summer is anything like we've just had it's going to be really sunny and hot.  Where our home is situated we need rain really badly and this morning  I woke to rain, this is the first rain since Christmas Day.

Thank you for all the lovely entries to our last challenge sponsored by Anne, I just wish that there were entries so we could have a Top 3.  Everyone must prefer other challenges than ours as we aren't getting the numbers.  
My question to our dedicated followers is what can we do to encourage more entries???  We would love to hear from you as we all have different ideas and views.  Thanks so much and we look forward to hearing from you in the comments.

Now onto last fortnights winner from Sketch #156 was.........

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 anne_ssw2@aol.co.uk 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
