Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #202 Sponsor DigiStamp Boutique

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog and my wonderful supportive followers.  When I woke on Tuesday morning here in New Zealand to here of the news coming in live on TV at the Boston Marathon and the explosions happening, it ran shivers down my spine bringing back memories of September 11 2001.  My heart goes out to the people of Boston.  This was so sad and so terrible.  I just wonder what our world is coming to with so many tragedies around it.  My prayers are with everyone that has been injured and families of the deceased and hope that justice is found.

Today is Wednesday which means we have another wonderful 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards.  Wonderful work ladies and this week we had over 40 entries again from our loyal followers which we really appreciate and also to some new ladies which is so lovely to see.

This week we have another wonderful sketch created by my follow design team member our very own 
Sally Dube.

Sketch #202
This sketch isn't hard just remember the 4 overlapping boxes behind the image circle and your added embellishments.
Check out what our design team created especially for you using their own selected images from DigiStamp Boutique you'll just love what they've created.

Poppy's which I just adore and could be used on so many different types of cards.

Kathie, your card is gorgeous. Poppies seams to be a new trend. I love how you added one to the card. The white embossing makes everything pop out so well. You are right about Boston - I made a card for that the other day because it is just devastating. And now everyone will live in fear and it will affect other events.

When I see poppies, I can't help but hear the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz "Poppies, poppies will put them to sleeeeep." Your card is VERY pretty this week. I love how the image is reflected in your paper. Great job Kath.
