Oh Dear....

Hello my fellow crafters and Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2.  It is Heide here from Michigan and I am your hostess this week here at SSW2. We are happy to have you join us this week. This week our wonderfully talented sponsor is Mary Ellen with Dearie Dolls. Below is a little something about Mary Ellen and her store Dearie Dolls. 

  If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 a BIG welcome to you and we are looking forward to see your creations and for those that are returning we are always happy to see you here at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 and love to see what you do with the sketch. Do not forget to become a follower to our little blog here,  we will be having another drawing once we reach 200 followers.
Let move on to our sponsor and sketch.

Dearie Dolls 
Mary Ellen's Dearie Digis are inspired by the wooden dolls she and her husband Kip made together for 25 years. She likes to tell a little story with each illustration. Some of her favorite subjects are snowmen and children.

Most of Mary Ellen's images are free to use.  They are so delightful and you could spend hours looking through the images that she has on her blog.  She has colored and uncolored images to choose from.
Mary Ellen also has a Etsy shop- Dearie Dolls by me where she has some very cute images for sale be sure to stop and take a peek. 

Before we get on with the Challenge, I want to announce last week's Winner of a $12 shopping spree at Sami Stamps!!
