Sketch 133 with A Day for Daisies

Hello and the warmest of welcomes to our latest challenge. 

We have just put the clocks forward here in the UK and are enjoying the extra daylight in the evenings and hopefully there will be sunshine with it soon as well. 

As well as it being the Easter weekend this weekend we will also celebrate April Fools Day on Sunday. Without fail my dad would always catch me out with a  fool
For anyone not familiar with the tradition here's a little something about it

April Fools' Day (sometimes called All Fools' Day) is an annual celebration in some European and Western countries commemorated on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting "April fool" at the unfortunate victim(s). Some newspapers, magazines and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in smaller letter

This fortnight our very gifted and talented sponsor is Tammy Thompson the illustrator and owner of 

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!

Our very lucky winner will receive a 

$12.00 Gift Certificate

there are so many wonderful images you'll be spoilt for choice.
