Welcome 2016!! SSW2 and A Day for Daisies!!

Hi there friends!!  Here we are, 2016!!  I am so glad you are visiting our Challenge Blog and I hope you will join us for the first Challenge of 2016!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 will be making some changes this year...  Our Challenges will be running for two weeks this year.  We are hoping that with a two week window, more of our Friends and Followers will find the time to play along with us!!  This past year has shown a decline in participation...  We are not ready to shut down the Challenge and are hoping to see the numbers go up with more time to play, so, spread the word and tell your friends to check our our Challenge Blog.  We will have a new Sketch every Challenge with wonderful Sponsors.  We will be featuring a few of the entries each week on our Facebook Page and there will be a Grand Prize Winner each Challenge!!

Now, enough with the housekeeping and on with this week's Challenge...

Our Sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies!!

and the prize is a $12 Voucher!!

Here's a little bit about the company

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!

  14. I'm sad that there won't be a new sketch every week, but at the same time, it will be nice to have an extra week to play along. I really like your sketches and the new format will give more time to actually get to use them. Keep up the great inspiration!

  16. Please don't close - I'd be lost without your sketches & just cause I never entered all the time didn't mean I was forever using your sketches! Hopefully with 2 weeks to play I'll be more regular. Lovely DT makes and a great sponsor, Jx
