Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch #006 Our Sponsor is Pattie's Creations

Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!!
Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards.  It was lovely to see some new faces this week welcome to SSW2.  

I've spent the last 24 hours feeling like death warmed up.  I was in the supermarket on Monday, thinking if I don't get home soon I'm going to be sick or need the toilet both ends.  I felt weak and as we are in the middle of summer I had a temperature and was freezing cold laying there with a big thick blanket on.  During the night I got worse and woke to be in a pool of water and I was burning up.  After a nice cold shower my temperature broke but I still don't feel right, I haven't eaten as I feel I still could bring it all up and I ache all over even my finger joints.    I think I'm suffering from a 48 hour bug and feeling sorry for myself. LOL

This week Sally has another great sketch and I was so happy seeing it as I bought a set of Spellbinder Hexagons about a year ago and have never used them.

Sketch #006

 Bio:  Pattie Gomez

I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
I have added many other images to my store in the past few years. I know have a large selection of images to fit everyone’s needs

Pattie is offering our very lucky winner

WOW- Kathie your card is gorgeous. Love that image and how you colored it and put the clear glossy accents on - it really looks like glass. Sorry to hear you are sick. I've got a sinus infection with bronchitis and have been coughing up a lung which makes it difficult to take care of my husband. Hope you feel better and I'll be saying prayers for you.

This is so cute - what great hearts and great things to show them off, including your hexagon.
Thanks also for the comments on my card.

Kathie, I love the glossy effect of your jar and darling hearts. I wish I had a hexagon die cut. It would make things a lot easier. I didn't have the patients to do it myself. Kathie, I did get your email. And, thank you so much for always thinking of me. Things were a little easier this year during that time. It actually hit me a month or so earlier. I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. Thanks so much.
Hugs, Nancy
