Sweet Sketch Wednesday 147 and Fresh Brewed Designs

Well, as fast as the snow came to Arizona, it left us a few days later.  It was wonderful to get the moisture.  We really needed it.  We are now having 67 to 70 degree weather.  Today was so beautiful.  It was the perfect spring day.  Too bad I had to be inside working all day.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week over at
Fresh Brewed Designs            
by Heather
Heather is offering our GRAND PRIZE WINNER (3) THREE DIGIS  of their choice.

I am Heather Dennis, the artist and owner of Fresh Brewed Designs, but first and foremost I am the wife of one amazing husband, mother of two sweet and talented kids. I homeschool and LOVE coffee, creating and chatting with my friends. Fresh Brewed Designs is an online shop that opened in November 2010. We sell a wide variety of rubber and digital stamps as well as specializes in many coffee themed images.
It started with a dream and turned into something bigger. With the prodding of a very supportive husband, family and friends, with a lot of help and a lot of headaches:) and a lot of lessons and prayers....
Fresh Brewed Designs has become a place to share, create, laugh and build lasting friendships.

Out motto: Fresh Brewed Designs... where creativity is brewed fresh daily.

We always have a pot brewing, so stop by and join us for a cuppa whenever you want!!!

Here is the fabulous sketch this week.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 146 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Well, winter finally hit Northern Arizona.  We got over 16 inches of snow on Sunday and Monday.  Flagstaff got a couple of feet or more of snow.  My daugther was here and ended up staying an extra day because the roads were so bad.   It was sure fun having her visit.  I hated to see her go home. 

Here are a couple of pictures.  This was taken on Tuesday night. The snow had melted quit a bit by then as the temperatures were up into the 50's today.

On with this weeks sponsor over at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 144 and Stamp Fairy

Gerda, from Stamp Fairy is our Sponsor this week over at

She has the cutest images. At the beginning of the year, Gerda made a calander using her adorable images.  It was the cutest calander ever. I am sure you can find it if you search back though her older posts.  She actually has a template for the calander that you can use to create each of the months.  If you look at her images, you will find that she has an image that fits each of the months of the year.  I want to get all of them so that I can make this adorable calander. 

You can check out her shop here.

The GRAND PRIZE WINNER of our challenge this week will  receive a
$10.00 Gift certificate to the Stamp Fairy Shop.

Arlana has brought back an image from the past.  This is a fun one. It was originally #43.
Hurry on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and check out our Design Teams cards.  The are super cute!!

Music has always been a very important part of my family's life.  Infact, that is one of the things I like about my husbands family.  They would stand around the piano and sing songs together while some of the brothers and sisters would play the violin and trumpet.  I loved the special feeling that this brought into their home. This image reminded me of those special times.

This image is called:  "Lenny Music 1-4"
