Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #149

 Digi Doodle Shop

Good evening followers this posting was meant to be scheduled and due to be posted at 12.01 am on Wednesday morning.  I completed my posting last week and scheduled it for 11th April 2012 before going to our beach house for an Easter break and extended holiday with my family.  Just before it was due to be posted Wednesday evening New Zealand time I realised I had a spelling error in my post so decided to edit it and I don't know what I did but I edited all the contents to blog land and all that posted was my title.  I did this from my iPhone as I was still up at the beach house, I was completely gutted, I then thought I would try to edit last weeks post and see what would happen to that YES I lost all the contents of that as well into blog land.  By then I wanted to pull my hair out.  As it had started to rain I told the boys we were packing up and coming home where my reliable computer was sitting.  
I apologise for this posting not being on my site when it should have been.  So now I know from experience don't even try to edit from your iPhone BIG MISTAKE.

It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday and congratulation's to last weeks winners, I commented on so many beautiful cards you all surprise me every week with your amazing creations.

Arlana has another amazing sketch and I just adore this one as it really shows off our amazing images and our wonderful design papers.

Sketch # 149

Isn't this image just beautiful it's called
A Field of Flowers

Our Sponsors this week is
Digi Doodle Shop

A Note from Judy and Joy

Digi Doodle Shop

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled

Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

 It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations.  We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.

Hi there Kathie, your card is gorgeous! That DP and your coloring are just fab. That flower is at the top of my To Buy List now.
I feel your pain. My IPhone has done some funny stuff from time to time. I know that I have to use my desk top for post and IPhone for commenting, lol. I do hope you enjoyed your time at your beach house aside from all the fuss with phone.
Tons of Hugs, Dangina
