Have you noticed the Tab at the top of the Blog???  Previous Sketches???  We will be keeping our Sketches stored on that page.  Any time you are creating a card, and you need a Sketch idea...  check back and go to the Tab - our Sketches are your Sketches =)  If you are new to SSW2, the last Wednesday Challenge of every month we add a TWIST.  It might be a Theme, or a Technique we would like to see you use...  just remember, it's about your interpretation!!  You can pick from any Sketch on our PREVIOUS SKETCHES page!!  We just ask that the Sketch is recognizable.  You can rotate, change the main shape (oval to circle...) and have fun!!

We have a wonderful Sponsor this week - Heather Ellis Digi Stamps.  I just adore her sweet images.  We were given two sweet Pure Innocence images to create with, just adorable!!  Here is a bit about Heather...

  1. Good afternoon everyone and congratulations to our winner Louise well done and to our top 3 cards awesome work ladies. Well this week really does have a twist and for me I was really looking forward to creating a Monochromatic card as it was a first for me and also took me from my comfort zone. So please give it ago I know you'll be please with the finished results. Thanks to Heather for being our sponsor this week is was great working and creating with your images they're just so cute. Thanks to Sally for a great posting and it's lovely to see that we are over the 100 followers and hopefully we'll be at the 200 mark soon. Take care everyone, wishing you a happy week and happy crafting.
