Walking Bonnet

Welcome the my blog, here it is 28th May the end of the month already.  I woke up yesterday morning to our first frost for winter and you could feel the nip in the air.  It's a long weekend here in New Zealand this weekend so its nice to be together with the family.

Today is Wednesday and that means its another 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to our winner from last week and our Top 3 card, awesome work everyone it was so good being able to visit your blogs.

It's the end of the month and we always have a twist to finish off the month.  This month we're revisiting a Sketch from a Blast from the Past.  We're using sketch #192 which we used on 6th February 2013.
The twist this month is to create your card using P is for purple.

Sketch #192

Here's my card using Walking Bonnet and P for Purple.

Here's my blast from the past 6th February 2013 over at 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Isn't it funny my card was made with tonings' of mauve and purple. 

This week our sponsor is 
Tammy the owner and illustrator  of
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. A Day For Daisies thanks you for your ideas, comments, and creativity!
