Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch #008 Our Sponsor is A Day For Daisies

Our week passes by so quickly I feel that our Wednesday's roll into each other.  
On the 1st March it was the start to our Autumn (Fall) and you would think that the weather gods knew it was the change of season over night as our temperatures have dropped dramatically in the evenings.  Last Monday evening at 9pm it was 20c and last night at 9pm it was 13c what a change.  A friend text me today who has just moved to Queenstown in the South Island and said it was snowing to the mountain range there, it looks very pretty but very cold. 
Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It was lovely visiting all of your blogs and seeing which was your favorite sketches and that extra twist of Monochromatic which was totally a first for me, I did enjoy it and I will make another monochromatic card with a Vintage feel I think and image.  Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards great work everyone.
By the time you've started reading this posting I've hopped on a plane and I'm in Australia a fleeting visit to Sydney for 3 days and 2 nights.  So I'll be back by the weekend to comment on your creations.

This week we have another lovely sketch Sally has created and this week we were able to choose our very own images from our sponsor
Tammy Thompson the owner of 
A Day For Daisies
 I just adore her images they really make my creative juices run wild.

Sketch #008 

Here's my card using Garden Bonnet, you may recall I used a similar image last year from A Day For Daisies which was Delivery Bonnet.  I love these sweet images they remind me of 'Holly Hobbie' which I was totally in love with when I was a very young girl.

This week our sponsor is the very talented Tammy Thompson the owner of 

A Day For Daisies

A Day for Daisies


A Day For Daisies began as a small token to a constant need to create. Pairing a love of whimsical illustration, with a tidy graphic design background, Tammy S Thompson, produced her first stamp designs, introducing irresistibly sweet stamps to crafters around the globe. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful world around us, she strives to express the happiness and gratitude she feels in each stamp design she creates.
Presently, A Day For Daisies has grown to over 3,000 Digital Stamps with a quickly expanding line of Best Loved Clear Polymer. A Day For Daisies has been published and awarded over the years for innovative and unique designs created to inspire the crafting community. With a whole team behind her now, she remains passionate about illustration, obsessed with quality, and dedicated to her customers.

Kathie, I am in awe at this card. It is so stunning and your color combo is so warm and inviting. Beautifully done all around. We are starting into spring' although we never got a winter this year. I think we are really going to have problems this summer with water supply. My grass is so bromw and I really hope I can revive it. It is so frustrating to do all this myself. Stay warm and I hope you have a grand weekend.
Hugs, Nancy
