SSW2-Doodle Pantry


It's Joanna, here in Colorado as your hostess this week. Are you ready for some football?!!  I sure am.

Best. Sport. Ever.

While shopping with a friend, I spotted these little cuties at Kirklands.  It's a turkey dressed for football!!  Naturally one had to come home with me!  I am waiting until September 1st to begin decorating for Fall (five more days, not that I'm counting or anything!).  It certainly didn't feel like Fall here in Colorado though …88 degrees, yikers -- super warm for us.  I think what I'm really ready for is the cooler weather that Fall brings.

Before we get started with our new challenge, I'd like to announce last week's winner.  Yippee, it's YOU ...
#14  Dorothy S!!

Please e-mail Sally at sallydubessw@gmail.com to claim your prize!!

I am so excited that Laurie Wilson and her company Doodle Pantry is the sponsor this week. I absolutely adore her images (Laurie is also one of the nicest artists I know).  If you ever get a chance to work on her design team, I HIGHLY recommend it.

Doodle Pantry takes pride in creating a diverse selection of doodling styles, like realistic or whimsical, and all of which are family and kid friendly illustrations.  You will enjoy the wide variety of styles for every family occasion!

Doodle Pantry is providing the Grand Prize Winner of this week's challenge a $10 gift certificate to the Doodle Pantry Shop.  Thanks for your generous sponsorship Laurie!

Welcome everyone to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It’s Kathie here as your hostess this week from New Zealand.  I can't believe that it's the middle of August already and our winter is nearly over and spring is just around the corner.  I can't wait as I'll be having two winters this year as we are off to England and Europe in fours months time for an English winter and Christmas with family and a quick trip around Europe and we'll be away for nearly two months.  Exactly four months today I'll be in Dubai for a stopover on our way to Ireland.

My boys told me that in Dubai they drive the fastest Police cars in the world!  No I didn't believe this statement but it's true their Police Force drive Bugatti, Lamborghini's and Mercedes every man's dream.

A Day for Daisies

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 our lucky winner will receive:
