Sweet Sketch Wednesday 193!!

Welcome back to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for another Sweet Sketch Challenge!!  I have had quite a weekend.  New England had a good ol' fashioned Nor'easter!!  The Blizzard broght up to 30 inches of snow around my neighborhood, with drifts 4 and 5 feet high!!  I live on the South Shore of Massachussetts.  As I write this Blog Post, many of my friends are still without power 4 days later.  We were fortunate not to lose power and only had to deal with the inconvenience of clearing away the snow.  But it IS winter after all, and I have to say I enjoyed being snowed in for a few days!! 

We had gorgeous blue skies the day after the storm which made clean up a little easier to deal with...

Now I'm sure you would like to know  the winners of last week’s challenge…..

Now, on to our Challenge!
This week our Sponsor is Krista of The Saturated Canary!!  Love her wonderful images!! 

My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!). And-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

Prize:  2 free digis from Krista’s shop!!!

  1. Your photos look amazing Sally. I wish I could be snowed in for a few days - imagine the crafting I could get done! I love winter and snow.

    Well done to Coops and the top 3 and thank you to Krista for her sponsorship this week. Her images are amazing and I couldn't choose - I wanted them all.

    Good luck everyone.

  2. Hi everyone what a week of totally amazing cards from all our wonderful followers. Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards great work everyone. You were all winners this week you really rocked that sketch. Thank you to Krista Smith the talented lady behind those wonderful images we all used this week over at Saturated Canary I just love working with you images Krista thank you so much for being our sponsor. Thanks Sally for a lovely sketch something a bit different and to your lovely posting this week. I still can't get over you getting 4 - 5 feet of snow where you live. When we got snow here a couple of years ago it was 4-5 mls not even inches or centre-metres and I got excited at the snow drifts. I would be like a child in a candy store seeing that much snow all at once. I love it when we ski up the mountain and it snows but a lot of the snow up there is machine made. Take care everyone and I'm so looking forward to seeing your amazing creations this week using this very creative sketch of Sally' s.

    Hugs always

    Kathie SSW-DT
