A Special Flower

Good morning welcome to my blog and to another great Wednesday,  and another week closer to Christmas with
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Congratulation to our winner and to our top 3 cards, great work everyone and I loved all that orange.

This week Sally has another great sketch to work with and it's so easy.

Sketch #33

This week our sponsor is one of my very favorite designers
Tammy Thompson the owner and designer 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!
