Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #106

Wedding Chapel
Merry Christmas
 with Polly Penguin

Wow where did that week go too?  Here it is Wednesday again and that means it's another
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I went to post my card for the week and realised that I hadn't even made it let alone ordered my image from our sponsor.  I sometimes have my cards made in advance and thought I had already made this weeks sketch.  I have heaps of DigiStamp Boutique images so grabbed one off my computer very quickly.  Later on I was looking at all of Sally-Ann's wonderful new June images and noticed that she had a freebie for June so I grabbed that to make my second card.   I tried to make my image look like a Christmas Decoration.   You can find this freebie here
We had some amazing cards and images this week using our sketch and congratulations to all our winners.

Oh, Kathie you are not dumb, I love the papers and they have such a different look I wouldn't have realized if you hadn't told on yourself. Beautiful showcase of two cards with the same sketch. Love your wedding card and what a lovely image. I am loving that cute penquin and will have to go get him for my future creations. Love the gorgeous embellies you added for this design. I want to thank you so much for the warm welcome to the team and look forward to getting to know you and all of the ladies on the team. I have always so enjoyed SSW and know this will be a fun adventure.

Gracious Kathie, these are two gorgeous cards! I love that gold paper on the wedding card - how beautiful that is against your wonderfully colored image. And that penguin card is the perfect winter card - love the idea of making it look like an ornament. Very clever.
