Pretty Pansies Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 57

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 57
Well here it is another Wednesday already, hopefully if my scheduled posting works, I'll be away with my family down Mt Ruapehu in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand skiing. Yes we're in the middle of winter here and my boys love skiing. It's about a 4 hour drive from our home, otherwise we have to go to Christchurch or Queenstown in the South Island to ski on the Southern Alps these are some of the best ski fields in the world, we have thousands of overseas visitors here each year just to ski on there mountains some stay for the whole of the winter.
Now I've told you what I'm up to, it's time to have a look at what our wonderful team of designers have been up to at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week. They have worked overtime this week, I had a sneak preview of some of their cards before they were posted and they look A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
This week our sponsor is
Sara is giving the lucky winner $10.00 Gift Voucher

Won't that be wonderful, but who ever the lucky winner is they'll have such a hard time choosing from so many wonderful images, we are spoilt for choice and these images are great to colour.

Here is another great sketch from our very talented Arlana. Arlana I love this sketch it was great to put together and I know I'll used this design over and over again. I have used Pop Dots behind my diamond so that it stands out from the rest of the card.

Good morning Kathie! I hope you and your boys are enjoying your skiing. You may be in the middle of winter, but if come on over to Canada we are in the middle of a terribly wet Summer. Cold and damp - yuck!!

Such a beautiful card. The green and purple together are beautiful. And your pansy image is colored perfectly! Just love it!

Deanne :)

Kathie, this is such a beautiful and elegant card! I love how you colored your image - it's so beautiful! The papers really add that special touch, especially the ribbon and the embossing. How fun to think that someone is skiing in the middle of summer - LOL! I worked with a lovely woman who lives in NSW in Australia and she was trying to get me to come over (one day I will) and tried to get me to understand how our seasons were off. I hope you all have fun skiing! :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog and REALLY reading my post... I was looking for an advice, that's the reason why I talked about my difficulty with ribbons, so thank you so much for answering! I don't really know if foam pop dots is a reference to a particular trademark, but anyway I understood the concept of foam tape. Thanks!
As I already said on Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog, I really love your card. Pansies are my favourite flowers! Oh, and it's winter for you... at the moment I would call you lucky! (it is very hot here in Paris, hard to craft with sweat on my fingers...)
