Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #139

Elisabeth Bell

Good morning everyone.  Well summer is really here now and the boys are back at school.  It's been very warm here in the last week or two.  The problem is we don't get the dry heat we get very high humidity which I think is worse. 
 Today is Wednesday and that means it's the 1st of February already and it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Congratulations to last weeks winner and our top 3.  Our entries were down on previous weeks which is a little to be expected with our new rules . Don't forget them I'll put them on the bottom of this posting.

Arlana has another lovely sketch for you this week and it's just so good because it really shows off all of our wonderful design papers.

Hi Kathie, how gorgeous. I love this image so much and how everyone colored up the bouquet! Your lovely glittered flowers are so pretty. I hate your humidity levels are high, it makes is so sticky and miserable even if the temps aren't too high. Glad summer has arrived. We can't complain, it was in the mid 60's yesterday for us which is very very unusual. Just a couple of light skiffs of snow this winter that were melted off by midday. Our daffodils are coming up and the trees are budding, they will probably be frost bit before long. Hope you have a great week, take care.

I love it...you used pinks and I used blues. I love the lavender bouquet of flowers. It is so fun to see how we each color these images up. Each one is so different and so unique. I love them all. I love how you colored their hair and your added little flower embellies. Thanks so much Kathie, for all your sweet emails and comments.
Hugs, Nancy
