Cami Camomile

Welcome to my blog.  Well I feel summer has really past now up until last week we still had wonderful autumn temperatures at around 21c.  But during the weekend snow fell in the South Island and we had very cold wind and rain and yesterday it was 11c so the temperatures dropped 10 degrees in 24 hours.  I'll have to get me winter clothes out now.

Congratulations to our winner this week over at
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 it was great work and I love looking at all your work and creativity.  

This week we have another lovely sketch by Sally with two different sized circles under the square image on top.

Sketch # 90 

Here is another look at my card also with a glimpse of the inside.  I used this really cute image from our sponsor this fortnight which is Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  I used 
Cami Camomile Flower Pot Pretties.

This week our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine, I couldn't wait to create my card using my Lacy Sunshine image, all of Heather's images are just so cute.

Heather Valentin  is  creative ,  award winning,  modern-day  fantasy and  whimsical  artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years. 

She  began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age. 
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and  brush stroke. Her  subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her  dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's  artist portfolio  has  expanded to include such  clients  as   Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils  and can now be found  at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across 
the globe. 
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.

Our lucky winner will receive 
Prize:  3 images 
of the winner's choice from
Lacy Sunshine online store.

This is beautiful Kathie, I love the flower pot pretties and this is no exception.
Your lovely yellow papers are perfect with this image too.
We should be moving into summer now but today it has been a chilly 12 degrees and raining, oh well it will soon be flaming June.

Kathie: I LOVE your card this week. So cute with all it's yellows and white. I really like both the daisy and the doily dies (could you tell whose they are?!) To answer your question, Colorado can get snow as early as September and sometimes it lingers into May (once it even snowed in June!!) It sounds like a lot of snow but the great thing about where I live is that even tho it snows, it usually melts within two-three days because of the winds. Have a great week sweet pea
