It's 2019 and we're back with a twist

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to another year of fabulous sketches from us here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

First lets have the winners from the last two challenges.

The winner of the challenge Sketch 150 sponsored by A Day for Daisies is Wendy at Paper Whims who entered a fabulous 4 times! You obviously loved the sketch Wendy.

The winner of our Pick of 2018 challenge is Heather.

Congratulations on your wins, please collect your winners badge and email me at anne_ssw2@aol.co.uk to claim your prizes.

Now onto our first challenge of 2019 and we are sponsored by the fabulous
Sparkle N Sprinkle


You can find the SNS website at: www.sparklensprinkle.net.  


The winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to Sparkle N Sprinkle. You may use the winnings in whatever way you would like in their on-line store, for any of the hundreds of fine products, including the digitals.

So here is Kathies sketch


and we are adding a twist this challenge and it's to change the main focal point and sentiment to a rectangle. Maybe you'll give both a go like the designers for this challenge did. We'd love to see what you make after all, it's like 2 sketches for the price of one.

So here is the DT inspiration

Kelly using Wilson Birds with a rotated sketch


Anne using Wilson Birds with the original Sketch


Kelly using Jefferson Birds with the twist on the shape


Anne using Hummingbird with a rotated sketch


and finally

Anne using Great Horned Owl with the original sketch


and with the twist


We do hope that you feel inspired by the variety of possibilities with Kathies fabulous sketch. We certainly loved playing with it and we do hope that many of you will join in with us.

Happy Sketching

Anne and the SSW2 Team

Sketch #150 With A Day For Daisies






Hello  Sweet Sketch Wednesday friends!!!

It's Kathie here, from Auckland New Zealand, back again as your hostess this fortnight.  We're in the middle of Spring here in New Zealand and the weather can be very changeable, one minute it's warm the other it's cold or could be very humid and raining.  

I'm sharing a view today from my kitchen window, it's an amazing view over our pond something I look forward to all year waiting for the flowering Cherry Trees and the Wisteria over our bridge to flower.  It won't be long before all the flowers have gone and there will be a mass of green leaves.  Unfortunately neither of them flower for long enough.



Firstly our winner from the last challenge sponsored by Cute As A Button
is Treebug




 Please email anne_ssw2@aol.co.uk to claim your prize

Our Top 3 in no particular order are


Nelleke
Aunty Sue
Colien
