"It's Springtime" Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #92

"It's Springtime "

Good morning everyone well I'm so jealous that everyone in the Northern Hemisphere are talking about Springtime and spring flowers.  That only means one thing it's down hill for me as we are in the start of Autumn which means winter is just around the corner.

Well today is another wonderful Wednesday and that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday and congratulations to all of our winners last week on your sweet cards and to all our non winners congratulations as they were all great.  Thanks once again for following us at SSW.

This week we have another great sketch for our very talented Arlana Patten, I loved working with this sketch and it looks awesome once your card is finished.

Wow!!! Kathie, this butterfly looks so real. It looks like it could fly off your card! Absolutely amazing! I love your color combo! It is so cheery! I'm sure it will help to bring spring on it's way for us! I have been trying to enjoy your weather since ours has been so cold. This week is starting to warm up...so there is hope!

Wow Kathie this is stunning! It's a great image to start with but it's your coloring that just makes my jaw drop in awe. Absolutely gorgeous! I love how you used the gray and dotted around the image - it just gives it wonderful dimension and depth. A very clever technique. And your papers and colors coordinate so well too. You have a magical touch in creating the most outstanding cards. Have a wonderful week!

Stunning card Kathie & beautifully coloured. The butterfly is so pretty! Spring should be on it's way here but we have a little snow forecast for tomorrow but then N.Ireland's seasons are always a tad mixed up. Hope you have a great weekend :)

Gorgous card and what stunnign coloouring you have used! Amazing!
Thanks for the lovely comments you leave on my blog anf thanks also so much for leaving the comment on my parents travel blog. They were both taken with it. I think they were touched that someone who wasn't friends or family had taken the time to read their blog. They are leaving South Island now and back to thier friends in Aukland for a bit before the trip back to the Uk via Singapore for 3 days. All that tarveling and sight seeing they have been doing- they will be very bored back here!
