Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #227 Sponsor Sassy Cheryl's Designs

Autumn Swing

Hi everyone and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday.  By the time you read this weeks posting I would have arrived in Santiago Chile on my homeward bound trip back to
 New Zealand.  We are spending 10 days in Santiago and the surrounding areas.

Congratulations to this weeks winner and to our Top 3 cards.

This week we have another wonderful sketch from our very own Sally Dube.  I love this sketch and was really happy how my card turned out.

Sketch #227

Here's my card using Autumn Swing by 
Sassy Chery's.

This week our Sponsor is 
Cheryl from Sassy Cheryl's

A little bit about Sassy Cheryl.....

"Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I'm so happy to be sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.
I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about twelve years ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits.  It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!  It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)
Through the digis I create, I've met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images."

This week Cheryl is offering our very lucky winner

Kathie you are right this card is adorable. I just love all those leaves - looks like my yard is starting to look and that ladybug. Those little peach flowers are so delicate and that color is perfect for the card. It almost looks like a snow globe with that design. Hope you had a great trip and will have time to get back to reality. Looking forward to some pictures.
