Happy New Year from SSW2!

Hi everyone!  It’s Sharon here as your hostess this week. On behalf of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 team, we wish you a Happy New Year filled with good health, prosperity and new friendships. It’s amazing the year has flown by so fast! Just a year ago our Sally took over the SSW challenge from our dear Arlana Patten and we’ve seen our followers grow steadily through the year. For that we are grateful and appreciate your support! And for those of you visiting us for the first time, we welcome you to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch challenge!  We are so happy to have you join us! 

We get excited with all the amazing creativity you share with us week after week.  Remember to subscribe to our blog. There's a drawing for some goodies when we reach 200 followers.

Let’s get started this week by announcing the winners of last week’s challenge…..

Since Dearie Doll images are free at Mary Ellen's Blog, there will not be a Grand Prize Winner...,
we will give a Shout Out to Our Top Three:

1.  #2  Larissa

2.  #9  Suze

Awesome job!  Please grab your Top 3 badge from the sidebar and post it on your blog!

Now, on to this week’s TWIST challenge and our fabulous “blast from the past” sketch for you to follow…

 Another one of my favorite sketches from Sally!  This week there is a TWIST with the sketch – SPARKLE AND SHINE.
