Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #164

Today is Wednesday and that means it's another wonderful
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards this week and it's so nice to see some of our older followers returning after having time off.  

Sweet Sketch Wednesday have nearly hit the 600 mark for followers...Wow that's amazing I know so many people love following Arlana's great sketches.

This week Arlana has another great sketch and I know you'll love working with it as much as I did.

Sketch #164

Here's my card using a beautiful image
 from this week's sponsor
Digi Doodle Shop.  I had so much fun colouring my image and I'm so happy how my card turned out.
This image reminded me of my Dad he always had beautiful gardens fruit, vegetable and flowers and he always had a bed of Marigold's in our garden.

A little Bio on two amazingly talented ladies the mother and daughter team from

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.
Judy and Joy
