Sweet Sketch Wednesday 138 and A Day For Daisies

It is unbelieveable how fast time flies by.  I can hardly believe it is the end of January.
Before you know it, it will be Valentine's day. Wasn't it just Christmas???
We still haven't had much snow were I live.  We were going to get some last night but didn't get more than a skiff of snow and a little rain. 
It is Wednesday again and that means it is SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY time.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday is making some changes to the challenge rules effective today.  We are trying to put more of an emphasis on our generous and dedicated sponsors and do more to promote their images.  So with the new sketch released today, please take note of the following:

1.      Create a card using the sketch of the week.  Remember to follow it without changing the orientation or flipping it.  A flower can be any embellishment or a sentiment.  Small dots can be brads, jewels, pearls, flowers or other embellishments.  Remember to follow the main layout and shape of the sketch.  For example:  If the sketch is an oval, it needs to be an oval.  A vertical rectangle needs to be a vertical rectangle.  However, if the layer behind a circle is a zigzag, it can be a scallop, another circle or whatever you want it to be.

2.     Use an image from this week’s sponsor (A Day For Daisies).  Feel free to use one of their freebies, if available.  We appreciate our sponsor’s generosity in offering you a prize for your creativity!

3.     Post this week’s sketch along with your card on your blog with a link back to Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

       4.     If posting to an online gallery, please use Sweet Sketch Wednesday #138

5.     Click into Inlinkz to add your card to this week’s sketch challenge.

6.     Leave a comment for us on this blog You must do this to be considered for the Grand Prize.

In making these few changes to the rules of our weekly challenge, we know that we may see some of our players drop out.  We hope you will reconsider as we feel a need to give greater support to our sponsors for their willingness to provide a prize for our winner.  That winner could be YOU!

We hope you understand and will continue to join our challenges.  We value our participants and our sponsors and appreciate your support of Sweet Sketch Wednesday. 

Our Sponsor this week is Tammy from: A DAY FOR DAISIES

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 137 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Hi everyone. I just got home from a wonderful trip to see Arlana.  We had a "shop until you drop" day and  I was even able to spend some time with one of my high school friends.  We try to get together whenever I visit Arlana.  It is always so fun to go, but I always pay for it when I get back to work.  Today was just a little crazy...I am pretty tired.  The good thing is that I got caught up on everything today.  I was really happy about that.  I am going to bed early tonight, though...I am really tired. 

We are delighted to have Sally Ann from the Digi Stamp boutique as our sponsor this week.
Sally-Ann is offering our lucky winner
6 Digital Images 
of the winners choice.
I hope you will visit Sally Ann's store and look around. She has some really cute images.

Our followers this last week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday created some amazing cards.  We love to see your creations they are really inspiring to us. 

Olivia and Archie

Don't forget to check out our Design Teams blogs.  They have some darling cards for you to view.
The Recipe for my card this week is:  Stampin Up and papers from my stash.  I have used a Sizzix flower die along with a die from Nestibilities for my sentiment.  I popped the image.  I used ribbon that Arlana shared with me.  I added Rhinestones to the flowers and sentiment.  My sentiment is computer generated.
