Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #199 Sponsor Paper Addictions

Good morning I can't believe that Easter is here already, I must admit I'm looking forward to a long weekend with my family at our beach house.  The weather is still pretty warm so I know my boys will be swimming and my sister is over from Australia wants to have a swim as well.  
Today is Wednesday and that means it's another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Congratulations to last weeks winner and our Top 3 cards great work.

Sally has another wonderful new sketch this week which is a little bit different it isn't hard all you need is a dinner plate to get your perfect 1/4 circle.

Sketch #199

Here's my card using this sketch:

This week we have a new sponsor and it's Jackie Matthew's the owner of Paper Addictions.

My name is Jacqueline Mathews and I am a crafter and designer.  I love paper, pens, doodling, stamping and above all designing.  I have a degree in fine arts with an emphasis in graphic design.  I worked in the graphic design industry for many years and quit 15 years ago to become a stay at home mom for my 3 kids.  Now that the kids are older and don’t need me as much, I am reinventing myself and have decided that I wanted to create my own line of digital stamps.  I have dabbled in rubber stamping and became a “Stampin’ up!” demonstrator and had a blast, but thought it would be more fun to create my own stamps.  I decided digital was the way to go.  It is affordable for the customer and for the designer.  I now have a digital stamp shop on Etsy called “PaperAddictions”.  I would love to create my own line of rubber stamps someday, but for now I am testing my designs out in my shop to see if anyone likes them.  I am pleasantly surprised that I have gotten a good response to the images I have designed so far.  This positive response has motivated me to create more images in the future.

Our lucky winner this week will receive 

Prize: Any 5 items from Paper Addictions Esty Shop

Don't forget to check our Jackie's amazing images if you haven't already done so.

Kathy, I hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family at the beach house. I must admit...I forgot it is Easter this Sunday. I am not sure what I will be doing. My son and daughter-in-law live here so I will be doing something with them, I'm sure.
Your card is so cute. I love the added clouds and glossy accents added to the balloons. This is an adorable baby card. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Nancy
