SSW2-72 & DigiStamp Boutique

Well hello there Wednesday friends!!  It's Joanna, from Colorado, back again as your hostess this week.  In addition to being the beginning of Fall for us Northern Hemisphere folks, October (well, OK September is REALLY the start of Fall) but I digress, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month for those of us in the United States.

I'll bet that all of you know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease.  Several of us on the team have been touched by cancer in some way or another.  I'd like to encourage us all to get involved.  Whether that looks like a donation to a local hospital, going to a cancer unit and holding the hand of someone getting a treatment or just making a card to give to a friend who needs the boost that a beautiful, handmade card can bring.

I'm encouraging YOU to get out there and make the world a better place this week (we already think that you are pretty awesome anyway!)

Before we get started with our new challenge, I'd to announce last week's winner ...

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

Congratulations!!  You guys should also grab your badge from our sidebar for your blog.  We are so lucky to have so many UH-mazing artists stop by and participate every week.  

It's the third week of the month (wow, where has this month gone by?!!) Anyway, that means that this week,we have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us.  I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  This month there are 3 new images.  The previous month had a ton of cute Halloween AND Christmas images.  I am in love with Mr. Flurry (Linda used him this week!) I encourage you to click the  "October 15th"  tab to check her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 

This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  Yippee!

But I'll bet you'd like to see this week's sketch.  Here it is…
