Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #174 Sponsor Saturated Canary

Sponsor: Saturated Canary
Image: Picnic

Good morning and welcome to 3rd October and only 83 days until Christmas oh where has 2012 gone too?

The boys and I are off to the
 'Museum Of Transport and Technology' today MOTAT for short.  I've been putting it off for the last couple of days because of the rain showers, today the sun is shinning and I have no excuse well I could be crafting?

I've just realised that I made the Top 5 picks over at 
Love To Create Challenge last week I'm so excited.

It's Wednesday and that mean it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards lovely work ladies.

This week Arlana has a lovely sketch which is really easy, it shows off your design papers perfectly and it looks great.

Sketch #174

Here's my card using Picnic isn't she a sweetie
I've been wanting to use her for sometime now but
just didn't have the right sketch to go with the image.

As you can see who our wonderful sponsor is this week it's 
Krista Smith the talented artist behind these amazing images at
Saturated Canary.

A Little Bit About Krista.

My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!). And-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

Krista is offering our very lucky winner 
2 Digital Images
from her online store.


If you haven't visited Krista before or you haven't used any of her wonderful images drop by her shop you won't be disappointed as there are just so many wonderful images to choose from and they are amazing to colour.  If  you have looked at Krista's images and haven't been back from a while it's worth a look as she's added new images all the time.

Don't forget to drop by the design team diva's here at
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday and check out what they've been up to this week creating with Krista Smith's images, as you'll see by our wonderful selection there are just so many to choose from and every card is just so different using the same sketch.

Just look how cute she is! Love her painted toes, makes me giggle. I would have to have at least two magnifying glasses to see those and paint them. Love that swirl too.
