Gathering Spring

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Today is Wednesday the middle of the week and time to look at our new sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Next week I'll be away in very sunny, tropic Cairn Queensland Australia to spend sometime with my sister, so next weeks posting will be scheduled so hopefully scheduler will work in my favour.
Congratulations to last weeks winner and to our Top 3 cards great work everyone.

This week we have another wonderful sketch by Sally, when I first saw the sketch I thought it wouldn't show off our design papers but I was so wrong it's worked perfectly and it isn't hard so please we would love to see your creations.

Sketch #70 

Some other views of my card and a peek of the inside which is reversible papers this week.
Also we're using one of my very favourite sponsors this week. 

If you hadn't already guessed our sponsor this week is 
Tammy Thompson this amazing creator of these wonderful images we've all used this week.


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!

This week Tammy is offering our very lucky winner

to spend in her online store.

Wow there are over 3,000 images to choose from so that really is being spoilt for choice.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team Diva's have created this week especially for you with Tammy's wonderful images.  We're lucky that we can choose our own images so we have all created something difference with all our varied tastes, and I know you won't be disappointed.
