Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!

I can't believe it's Wednesday again already...  A friend posted on Facebook that Christmas is just 12 weeks away - WOW - thanks Cathy - how to create a mood of pANIC...!
This past weekend, I did some Apple picking.  Saturday with friends and Sunday with family.  I shared a few photos from Saturday's outing in an earlier post, but thought I would share a few pics of my family.  My daughter Laura and her boyfriend Chad, my son Scott and his wife Marisa, and my neice Katie, her husband Greg and my little buddy Axel.  We had a great time on a beautiful afternoon.


We only had a short time due to schedules, but next year we hope to make it a "whole day event"!!   We will see how that works out...

On to our Challenge...  I am loving being a part of the Design Team at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I do hope you are enjoying playing along.  The sketches are always so great for showcasing beautiful papers and images!!  This week's is no different...

Our Sponsor this week is Deidre Mosher Designs.  She has such a unique style to her Digis - very fun!!  A quote from her Bio - Wildly Whimsical and Seriously Sassy Art is definitely a trademark of Deidre Mosher.  Our theme is Celebrating Women!!
I really enjoyed working with her image!!  Now I just have to wait for the perfect person to send it to... =)

This week Deidre has provided a $10 Gift Certificate to the winning entry - Thanks Deidre!!

The paper is a favorite pad of mine Graphic 45 - Little Darlings Collection - my go to paper for a baby card.  The image is colored with Copics.  The crocheted flower and button are Close to My Heart and the ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I can't wait to see what wonderful cards you create with Arlana's Sketch!! 
Have a Blessed week!!


  1. Hi Sally, I do love your card, it brings back so many wonderful memories. Pretty design papers and colours. Lovely family photo's what type of apples were you picking and do you bottle them or freeze them or make heap of apple pies. Take care and have a wonderful week.

    1. Good Morning Kathie (or is it Good Evening...?) We were picking Macouns and Cortlands - yum! The Macouns are for snacking and the Cortlands for baking!! There will be pies and crisps in my near future!! The taste of Fall!! Love the smell of Fall baking...
      Have a great week - Hugs to you - Sally

  2. What a gorgeous paper pack. I love your color scheme for your darling card. This is such a fun image. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your family.
