SSW2: Twisted Dilly Beans

Welcome back Crafty peeps!  It's Joanna, from cool (and a tad rainy) Colorado.  I'll be your hostess and guide this week.  We are soo glad that you are back.  I hope that you are ready for some fun!

Before we get started with this week's Sketch, I am happy to announce last week's Winner ... 

#17. Lisa Lynn

Please e-mail Sally at to claim your prize!!

Here, in no particular order, is the list of our TOP THREE favorite cards from last week's challenge...

#2. Janette
#5. Carol Dee
#7. Yola

A great big HOORAY goes out to you three!!   You guys should also grab your badge from our sidebar for your blog.  We are so lucky to have such great artists stop by and participate each week.  Selecting favorites is always difficult because we have gorgeous work posted!

Since this is the last challenge of the month, in addition to our sketch, we have a twist for you, just to shake things up a bit. This week our TWIST is that you must have sewing on your card to qualify for the prize drawing. It's up to you whether your sewing is real or faux.

We're also super excited to welcome back Megan Suarez, the artist owner of Dilly Beans Stamps, as our sponsor this week. She will be providing the challenge winner with three free images from the Dilly Beans online shop. Wow!!

Dilly Beans offers some wonderfully whimsical digi stamps in a lot of different themes. To see more of Megan Suarez’s beautiful illustrations, visit her InspirationsBlog, Dilly Beans Challenge Blog and the Dilly Beans Facebook Page.

Thanks for your generous sponsorship Megan! We loved working with Penny and Tula this week.

Now, without further ado, here is this week's sketch … yep, it's a blast from the past. Originally created by Sweet Sketch Wednesday's Arlana Patten and featured all the way back in April of 2013. Click here to see what the talented artists of original Sweet Sketch team did with it.
