Wednesday, 21 June 2017


Good morning and welcome to my blog.  I can't believe I'm back after 4 and 1/2 months after my accident but it's good to be back.  Today is 21st June 2017 which means it's the shortest day here in New Zealand.  So a little more day light each day from now on.

This week our sponsor is 
DigiStamp Boutique and I've used
Daisies 1, 2 and 3 and put the 3 of them together.

Here is this fortnights sketch 
by Anne.

We have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us this fortnight.  I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  She has so many wonderful images to choose from.  I encourage you to check out her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 
This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  Yippee!

Don't forget to drop by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and see what the rest of the design team have created especially for you this week.
