Snow Angel Dearie

 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 with a twist.

Good morning and welcome to a wonderful Autumn sunny morning here in New Zealand.  I can feel the temperatures dropping especially in the evenings but last week we spent the first week of the school holiday break at our beach house, the water was so warm the boys were swimming and biscuiting off the back of the boat and having a blast and wanting to go faster and faster.

I was so excited to comment this week on so many lovely cards created using Sally's sketch.  Great work everyone and congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards.

Today is the 30th April which means it's the end of the month and we have our twist.  We've decided to supply the sketch and this month the twist is Tic-Tac-Toe.

Sketch #217
A Blast From The Past

 Here is my card using Dearie Dolls image 
Snow Angel Dearie

I've used:
1. Stitching, Design Paper, Jewel
2. Charm, Jewel, Ribbon
3. Charm, Design Paper and Stickles

Here's my blast from the past.
This card is one of my very favourites I've ever made
I think its this sweet image and
 I just adore this design paper and colours.

This week our sponsor is Mary Ellen's Dearie Dolls.  Everyone of Mary Ellen's digi's are free on her site and there's so many to choose from which is very generous.

Dearie Dolls 

Mary Ellen's Dearie Digis are inspired by the wooden dolls she and her husband Kip made together for 25 years. She likes to tell a little story with each illustration. Some of her favorite subjects are snowmen and children.

So if you haven't popped over before now it's time too and see what you like and once each one of them are coloured up they look so different as you'll see if you visit Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and see what the DT's have made using these sweet images.

When I first saw this cute card, I said to myself...who used a snowman! Then when I saw it was you it hit me, your headed into your Winter. We had such a hard Winter this year. I did not think anyone in the States is looking forward to snowmen. LOL.
Your card is super cute, Your coloring is great and love the tree charm with the image. Have a great rest of the week.
Hugs, Heide
