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.
