Sweet Sketch Wednesday #182: Broken Box Designs

Phew,  did you all survive the craziness that is Thanksgiving?!!  We had a great holiday but I think that I picked up a cold while I was in Layton.  Small wonder since I think all my nieces were sick (even the great-nephews were a bit snuffly).  Bleah ... must stop smaking on sick kids but who could NOT kiss this little face?  Too cute!!

This week our sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Broken Box Designs

Broken Box Stock is a fun, imaginative and unique clip-art shop featuring hand-drawn illustrations and digital stamps by Wendy Sefcik.

This week, the prize up for grabs is the Holiday Toodle Set Printable Page ( You can check it out here:

We hope that you will get sketchy with us this week! Don't forget to comment after you upload your card so you are eligible to win the prize.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday: #181-DigiStamp Boutique

Yikes!  The day before the storm, aka Thanksgiving.  I hope you are sitting in a comfy chair and surfing the 'net rather than cleaning, baking, or running to the store, trying to find kumquats or something else ridiculous.

Our sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is a great one.  And this week we are sponsored by Sally Ann from DigiStamp Boutique.

"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 as much as I enjoy creating."

 I am lucky enough to be going to my sister-in-law's in the land of fry-sauce for T-day.  This means I'll be surrounded by lots of nieces and nephews (and babies), lots of great food and of course, football.  I can NOT wait.

So after you've had your fill of pumpkin pie and field goals, link up your card over at SSW.  Sally Ann is generously providing the winner with 6 free digi images.  We'd love to see your work.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #180: Sassy Cheryl

It's the middle of the week again.  Can you believe it?  Still packing up my house so days are merging into each other.  Gosh I'll be glad when this is all over.  Last weekend, in a move to be more efficient, Ken packed up most of our electronics and moved them to the new house.  I was a bit surprised (and more than a little cranky) when I tried to print .... but there was no printer available.  NOT a great start to a crafting session, especially when using digis!  But it all worked out!
This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday Arlana has given us  a great sketch to work with ... lots of layers.  My favorite!

Our sponsor this week is Cheryl from Sassy Cheryl images.  And here is a chance to meet the girl in her own words:

"Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.

I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years.
 I started creating digital images about twelve years ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!"

So come join in the fun.  Sassy Cheryl's is offering our winner a $5 gift certificate for her store.
If you still need some inspiration, stop by the site to see what my teamies made.  Be sure and leave them some love while you are there.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Stamp Fairy, #179

 Hiya peeps!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  

This week we are sponsored by Gerda Burghardt.  Stamp Fairy was officially launched on November 5th 2010. Gerda, the artist and owner, creates cute and whimsical digital images for the young and old, inspired by her life, love and 4 cute cats. 

Our sketch is fairly straight forward with the strips of designer paper.  You can't tell but I DO have three!  Dang I'm good at matching DP! (grin)

In other news ... the house is packing up nicely.  I should (she says optimistically) be ready to move in four weeks.  I was a little surprised at how easily I packed up my stamps.  A year ago I would have practically hyperventilated at the thought of being separated from my beloved stamps for 5 weeks. 

 But ... as long as I have my spellbinders, I think that I will be fine with just digis.  I can't wait to show you pictures of my new craft room and house.  Yay!

Don't forget that YOU could win a $10 gift certificate for linking your card to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday site.
