Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone! I had so much fun preparing for this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Tiddlyinks and I'm showcasing three images today from Tiddlyinks using this week's fun and versatile sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We'd love to have you join us in the sketch challenge this week. One lucky winner will be selected as the Grand Prize winner and receive a $10 gift certificate to Tiddlyinks digital stamps!  Just make a card using this sketch and post it to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday site. Remember to add your comments at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to be qualified to win the Grand Prize and the Top Three recognition.  We love our supporters and welcome new participants. You'll love Arlana's sketches - particularly the one this week that inspired me to make three cards to showcase!

The first card uses this adorable Tiddlyinks "Penguin Hop". I love penguins and this one was irresistable to me, especially paired with my new "Flakes" paper from Crate Paper's Snowy Day Collection. I also used some leftover Cosmo Cricket "Jolly By Golly" papers from last year. The embellishment is a combination of a MS snowflake punch, Spellbinders snowflake die cut, a beaded spiral doo dag and lots of colored stickles! Isn't he a fun looking chap all glittered up?!  I thought so too!

My second sample showcases Tiddlyinks "Something Warm" snowman. Doesn't he look friendly glittered up and glistening?!

I've used the new Echo Park Paper's "Wintertime" here - it's soft blue and warm browns and reds were a perfect combination with this darling image.

And finally this sweet angel called "Watch Over Us" at Tiddlyinks makes a lovely Christmas card with her wings and halo so sparkly.

She's combined with papers from Kaisercraft's "Christmas Carnival Collection" which is shimmery and sparkly too.

Hopefully you've seen something here that prompts you to head over to our sponsor, Tiddlyinks, and check out the holiday images available there. Each of the images I've used are selling for only $1 right now. 

And I know you have to love the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch and the different looks you can achieve with it. So play along with us this week, won't you? We would love that!  Be sure to check out the other design team creations for more inspiration and samples of this sketch and Tiddlyinks images too! Links are on my left sidebar and at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday site.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Sharon, your cards are amazing this week!! when I was getting the post ready for Wednesday, I would say "wow", I love that one and then you would add another one and I loved that one too...they just kept coming. You were a busy girl this week. I would have a hard time picking a favorite. One of the things I like is how your display your cards. You always have such fun backgrounds to showcase them. I love your new Banner and background paper for your blog. It is really festive for Christmas.
have a wonderful week!
Hugs, Nancy
