Party Elephant

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  It's Wednesday which means it's another
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to our winner and top 3 cards great work everyone I loved looking at all your creativity and how you worked our sketch.

Here's a look at my card, this was one of the quickest cards I've ever made I think and it's a rather cute image.

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.
