SSW2- Sketch 92- Dearie Dolls.

Hi there friends!!  Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It is Heide here welcoming you from Michigan.  I speak for the whole Team when I say I am SO HAPPY to have you join us this week. Our wonderfully talented sponsor is Mary Ellen with Dearie Dolls. Below is a little something about Mary Ellen and her store Dearie Dolls. 

If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 a BIG welcome to you.  We are excited to have you play along with us and love to see all the wonderful creations each week!!  
Without further ado, I want to introduce you to 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.

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.

90 Sketches!! and a little bit of Sunshine

Hello and welcome to our latest sketch challenge for you. 
It's Anne here from Yorkshire in the North of England as your hostess this week. It's bluebell time here at the moment so I thought that I would share a picture of some of this pretty woodland flower with you.

Before I reveal this week's sketch, we'd like to announce our winner of the prize from Sketch 89 with Bugaboo challenge.  Drum-roll for the Grand Prize Winner please....Congratulations, it's you

#14  Camille!!

Please contact Sally at to claim your prize. Please also be sure to grab the winners badge to proudly display on your blog. The winner's badges can be found in the sidebar.

Crafters - no Top Three this week!!  We announce Top Three when our entries exceed 15...  so, spread the word and keep that Mojo flowing!!

This week our sponsor is Heather Valentin.  She is a 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 colour, 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 ...

Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Our very lucky winner will receive

3 Images
from the Lacy Sunshine online store.

You can check out the shop here.  We certainly hope that you might use an image from Lacy Sunshine in your creation, but it is not a requirement to enter.
