SSW 164 - Digi Doodle Shop

What a great week we have at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, especially to have Digi Doodle Shop sponsor us! They have such darling images!

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

SSW 163 - Digi Stamp Boutique

Well, my son is 15 months old and had not had a haircut! We lovingly call his hair "Gene Wilder" hair! It is so curly! Well, it got to the point that it was out of control... we had to introduce him to the hair clippers!

In the process of a haircut.

Halfway there! My, he has so much hair!

Finished look! He looks so grown up now!

Thanks for indulging me and letting me share a little bit of my family with you! We have a wonderful sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Sally Ann has such wonderful images! You should swing by and check them out!

All images/designs are created and copyright owned by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

Prize: 6 free digi images!!!

Here is the sketch for this week!

Here is my card! I chose this image because this week, on the 20th, marks the 43rd anniversary of when man first stepped on the moon! How awesome! My dad and I always loved talking about NASA and all the explorations, so this image really brought back a lot of fun memories for me of my dad!

SSW 162-34 Pattie's Creations

Well, this week sure has flown by! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th of July! I spent mine at the first "Taste of the High Desert" street fair at our fairgrounds as a vendor for my home-based business. It was a good experience and got some good referrals.
This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we have a fabulous sponsor who has such adorable images: Pattie's Creations!

Pattie Gomez Bio

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.

My store:

Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.
Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief…

Prize: 3 free digis

SSW 161 Stamp Fairy

Well, this sure has been an exciting week! We surprised our 4 year old daughter with a 2 day trip to Disneyland, and she was sure excited!!! I can't believe how much she has grown too! We didn't tell her where we were going when we left home and the park was so busy, we were unable to park in the Disney parking lots. We ended up having to park at a mall and take a shuttle there was nothing to give away the surprise. We had already bought tickets, so we didn't have to wait in line and we were able to go right into the park. She didn't know where she was until we got on Main St.

Still not sure where she is...trying to figure it out...

It finally hit her! "I'm at Disneyland!!!"

She got to meet Minnie Mouse right away!

The princesses were a big hit!

Especially Cinderella and Belle! They are her favorites!

Princess Tiana was a big hit too!

But Tinkerbell, also lovingly known as NeeNee at our house (where she got that, I still don't have any idea), topped them all, especially since she waved to her!

Our son also had loads of fun!

Our family packing up after getting to watch World of Color! What an awesome show!
