Sweet Sketch Wednesday


Welcome to this week's addition of Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!  We are up to sketch number 24 this week and we have an awesome sponsor which means there is a chance at winning a prize should you decide to play along with us. As always, Arlana has a great sketch for us today!

Here is this week's sketch...



Our gracious sponsor is Sally Ann from the Digi Stamp Boutique.  Not only was she kind enough to provide the DT with an image of our choice to use today, but she is also offering up to $15 worth of digistamps from her store for the winner of this week's challenge.  Can I hear a Woot Woot!!!

So please go to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Blog when you are finished here and see the rest of the DT's cards and also find out all the details about how to submit your card for this challenge!  Good Luck!



The image I chose to use for today's Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch is called Jack and Snowman.  Isn't he just the cutest little fella that depicts the heart of a child playing in the snow?  I used Copics to color my images, except for the scarf which was paper pieced to match the DP.


The DP is from Karen Foster Designs that I pulled out of my unused Christmas stash from last year.  I like how it is a masculine print and went well with the little boy!  The brads are the smaller sized brads made with my I-top brad maker.  It is so fun to be able to perfectly coordinate brads with my DP.

I found the sentiment as a free download from HERE.  Donna offers a free collection of Snow related Word Art that was perfect for this image!


At this angle you can better see that I added Diamond Dust to the edge of the snowman and on the ground to give the effect of the icy shine that you get when the sun beams down on the snow!  Even a FL girl remembers what that looks like from when she was a kid!!  LOL!

Is it cold where you are today?  I hope this might have helped to warm you up!!  Please go by the SSW Blog and see what the rest of the DT has in store for you today.  May your have a really SWEET day and your bucket overflow with fun childhood memories  of  playing in the snow!

Great card! I love the plaid paper (and how you used it to paper piece his scarf) and the glitter. That's a cool Nesties shape, too! I haven't seen that one.
