The sponsor of this week's sketch is the Digi Doodle Shop and the Grand Prize winner this week will receive a $10 Store Gift Certificate Good for 10 days upon receipt
Digi Doodle Shop:
Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations.  We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.

Sincerely,
Judy and Joy

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday 162-34!! 

The sponsor of this week's Sketch Challenge is Pattie's Creations and the Grand Prize winner this week will receive 3 free digi's!! 

Here is a little something about Pattie: 
I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.

I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.

I think I could probably cash in pretty good if I bet that 99.9% of you out there probably have some pretty cute recipe cards that will never get written on.....am I right?  Ok maybe that percentage is too high, but I know that this one inspired me with it's cuteness and hey it's just more cardstock to add to your stash!

Are you wondering what's on the inside, since I didn't put anything on the outside?  I bet you can guess...
