Dearie Kip and M.E Carrolers

Good morning and welcome to my blog, today is Wednesday which means it's another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Congratulations to last weeks winner Louise great card.

This week we have another great sketch to work with which shows off our amazing design papers.

Sketch #74 

Here's another view of my card and a quick preview of the inside as well.

This week our sponsor is Mary Ellen the owner and artist of Dearie Dolls Digi images.

 Dearie Dolls 

Mary Ellen's Dearie Digis are inspired by the wooden dolls she and her husband Kip made together for 25 years. She likes to tell a little story with each illustration. Some of her favorite subjects are snowmen and children.

Don't forget to check out Mary Ellen's website for her wonderful free images.


Most of Mary Ellen's images are free to use.  They are so delightful and you could spend hours looking through the images that she has on her blog.  She has colored and uncolored images to choose from.

Mary Ellen also has a Etsy shop- Dearie Dolls by me where she has some very cute images for sale be sure to stop and take a peek.
