Jack and Snowman
Sweet Sketch 72
Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Today I need to show off my darling new little grand daughter. Last month I flew to Okinawa for my daughter's scheduled c-section which was scheduled four days after my arrival but my grand daughter was not going to wait. She knew that Grandma was coming and she wanted to come too. When no one was at the airport to greet me, I knew that my daughter was at the hospital. As I resigned myself to waiting in the airport, my daughter's friends arrived and rushed me to the hospital. We arrived five minutes after her birth...perfect timing for Grandma to enjoy all those special moments!

What a sweet surprise!

She definitely is a miracle baby! Mom is doing well too!

Well, today is another special day. It is Sweet Sketch Wednesday! Arlana has created another wonderful sketch for you to play with this week!

We also have a fabulously dedicated sponsor that has sponsored SSW for the past year every single month. I just want to personally thank Sally Ann, the owner and creator of
Digi Stamp Boutique for sponsoring Arlana's Sweet Sketch Wednesday site. We have loved using her fun images to create our cards with.
Below is Digi Stamp Boutique's Jack and Snowman.
Isn't this image just adorable!

Boo and Candy Corn Girl
Sweet Sketch 71
Sponsor: Sassy Cheryl's


For this week I managed to get two cards made. Arlana bought Nancy and I each an image from Sassy Cheryl's so that is why I have two cards this week. We just love Sassy Cheryl's images. They are so fun to work with. I love all her detail. Our DT was given three images to create with. All three images are so fun. I just loved this little ghost. It's he just adorable? Hardly the scarey type but that is to my liking! I'm not fond of spiders either but even he looks rather friendly! Don't you think? To accent the image I used the MS bat punch!

As you can guess...Sassy Cheryl's is our sponsor this week at SSW! Cheryl is offering a fabulous prize of a
$5 gift certificate!
So be sure to play may be the lucky winner!
You will love using Arlana's Sweet Sketch 71 this week! It's one of my very favorite sketches!

Candy Corn Girl

Candy Corn Girl is my second card this week. I had a blast creating this card. I cut out the candy corns from the background paper and glued them to the purple polka dot paper. I also cut out the wrapped candy to add to the top of my bow. Then I topped things off with the green metal dots...just love using those dots.
