Hi everyone!  It’s Kathie here as your hostess this week for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 team and I'm here in New Zealand.  For those of you visiting us for the first time, we welcome you to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch challenge!  We are so happy to have you join us!  And for those loyal followers of our weekly challenge, we welcome you back and thank you for your on going support!

This time of year is busy for all of us with Halloween over for another year and Thanks Giving for my American and European colleagues, followers and friends isn't far away and then there is Christmas day in 49 days time are you ready yet???  This year seems to have past by even quicker than last year !!!

Christmas for us is the beginning of our Summer holidays here in
 New Zealand and this tree is the Pohutukawa Tree in flower all over summer, at beaches, homes, parks and on a our shorelines of 
New Zealand.  It's so pretty and when the little fronds drop it looks like red carpet on the footpaths, roadsides and beaches.

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!
