SSW2-129: Cute As A Button

Welcome back Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 fans!

It's Joanna and I am back as your hostess this fortnight.  I wanted to wish you all a very Happy {OK, maybe a tad early} Groundhog's Day.  Here in Colorado we've had a pretty mild winter (so far anyway) but I'm always ready for Spring so I DO hope he sees his shadow!

This week we have the return of Francesca Lopez from the Cute As A Button shop.  She is offering our winner 2 digital images from her shop.  Yay!  You can find more information about the darling images that we've used either on her shop site or on her Facebook page found here.   Her Challenge blog can be found here

I'll bet your ready to see our sketch for this fortnight?  It's by our very own Kathie!  I love it's simplicity; it was super easy to use.  I hope that you will want to join in the fun this week.

Our Design Team has been busy making cards for you to see.  So without further delay, here are their creations ...

I hope many of you will play along with us this challenge. The rules for playing along can be found by clicking the CHALLENGE RULES tab at the top of the page.

Please remember to comment on this post to be eligible to win.

Thanks so much for visiting us and joining in the fun!
