 A Sweet Goodbye and a Merry Christmas

 Well it that time of year when we celebrate Christmas and remember the birth of Christ. With all the going on some times it just flies by to fast. I hope that we can all enjoy  this day with family and friend.

 As many of you know by now it is a Sweet Good buy to My Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog. I have had many mixed emotions. But have come to the fact that it must happen. I want you to know I will treasure all the memories and friendships I have made from having this blog.

 I need to thanks all my design team past and present for all there dedicated and countless hours sent in helping me make this Sweet Sketch Wednesday a success a success. As of today we have 693 followers. Ill I can say is WOW! I never dreamed it would be that successful.

Many of you did not realize by my sisters Judi and Nancy are also to thank. They were as dedicated to Sweet Sketch Wednesday as I was.  Each week would not have happened with out them. I would have given Sweet Sketch Wednesday a long time ago.

Then theirs all my Sponsors they were so generous. We loved there images. Hope you enjoyed there prizes. You all delighted us with your creative talent.

Well I must not forget Sally Dube this year for helping me by making Sketches. It has been so fun get sketches made by Sally. I can tell you she has spent lots of effort in this. Well we didn't want her efforts go to waist so I offered her to take over the blog. But decided it need to be so be sure to go over there next week for a new fun filled year.

the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of 
her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo

 Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images,

 and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary

 sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other

 side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all

 that you need and more to create your paper projects.

 Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and

 Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are),

 you can findBugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally 

Stampalicious. And finally, join theBugaboo Stamps DT for

Such a fun and SWEET image to work with. I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it.
