Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #136-73

Sponsor Wee Stamps
Roses Bike Ride
Good morning today is Wednesday and that means it's another wonderful Wednesday and it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
I was hoping that blogger  was working and would work it's magic for me and scheduler will work as I was meant to be away  at our beach house for a little bit of sunshine and me time before the boys go back to school on 1st February.  I got to the beach on Friday and it started to rain late Friday evening and stopped on Sunday afternoon and is meant to be raining all week so I decided to come home and go back next week and guess what today is a wonderful sunny day and I'm back home.  So I'm getting all those jobs done that I was going to do next week. 

Congratulations to all our winners this week wow what awesome cards and such a wide variety of creations.

This week Arlana has a blast from the past with a oldie but a goodie.

Hello Kathie,
So clever of you to post your card from Sketch 73! I will have to remember that! Yes, our minds were definitely on the same wave length. I was so surprised when you posted this week's card and saw how similar our cards were. I do love your lavender roses and almost colored my roses lavender too. As for the butterfly paper...we both thought she needed butterflies surrounding her! I just love this sweet image!
Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog the past few weeks. It sounds like you found some fun Christmas specials! Hope you are able to enjoy some fun memories with your boys!
Hugs, Judi

Kathie , I love how you colored your image. The pinks and purples are so fun. I love your sweet papers too. It was fun to see the same image used but yet the cards are so different. i love your added daises. Thanks for all you do. HUGS Arlana

You've colored Rosie in so perfectly! I love the pretty spring feel of it and the daisies on it are a terrific touch too. The strawberry card is making me hungry this morning already!

Peace & Luv,

Oh Kathie, your card is absolutely adorable. I love the lavander...you know me.. I sure hope your hand is doing better from the burn you got. I hate getting burns like that. They hurt for days. I really like how you bring back your card from the past to post with your current card. It is so fun to see them both together. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
Hugs, Nancy

Gosh your card makes me think and yearn for a sunny spring day Kathie! So beautiful with those colorful papers and wonderful coloring of the adorable image. It's fun to think of you in the warmer seasons while I'm here in the cold though we've had a pretty easy go of it so far here in Michigan. I hope you get back to drier weather there. Have a terrific weekend!
Sharon :)
