Sweet Sketch Wednesday 238-98 
and a 
Sweet Good-bye to Sweet Sketch Wednesday

The image is AKV Under the Tree, an old image I used about two years ago. You can find it here.

This is my last card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  I am stepping down as the SSW Coordinator.  Life seems to keep me way too busy lately and Arlana is not able to keep up due to her arm surgeries last year!  It's been a wonderful 4 1/2 years.  

We have loved all our Design Team members and have particularly appreciated the support of our many sponsors during this time.  

Sally Dube, our sketch coordinator who took over for Arlana last year has decided to keep Sweet Sketch Wednesday going.  It will now be

We are so grateful to her for her dedication and desire to do this.  Most of our DT will still be the same.  However, Arlana and I will be stepping down.  I believe Jeannie is also stepping down.  Some of us may return from time to it may just be a surprise.  

We are most grateful for all of our followers who have suppported us for the past 4 1/2 years.  We hope you will continue to support Sally at 

Our sketch this week is one from the past.  We hope you will enjoy using it again.

We also look forward to hearing from you this week or in the future.

Oh, by the way,  SSW will be left open for you to continue to view our sketches.  If you use them, please be sure to acknowledge Arlana or Sally for their work here at SSW and refer your friends to SSW2.

We hope you will play along this week.  The winner will be posted next week at SSW2
