Tender Thoughts

I do hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with your family and friends.  We had an amazing few days at the beach house and the weather was just beautiful.  It was so good that the boys were still swimming as the water is still very warm.   My boys are on a two week school holiday break so it's lovely to have them at home.

Today is Wednesday which means we have another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to last weeks winner and to our top 3 cards everyone really like that great sketch from Sally and it was great to be able to use up some of those scrap pieces of design papers.

This week Sally has another lovely sketch

Sketch #50

Here's my card using this very simple but elegant sketch.

This week our sponsor is

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!

Our lucky winner this week will receive 

Prize:  $12 Gift Certificate

What a lovely image you have chosen Kathie and I love your peach and blue colour scheme too and the die shape that you have used frames the image perfectly. A beautiful card.
You have inspired me to start decorating the inside of my cards, as you say its a good way to use the paper.
