Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!

tulip tulips flowerHey there Crafty Friends!!  Are many of you as shocked as I am that April is almost over?!?!?  As I was driving home from work today I was noticing how many tulips are about to open up and show their full beauty!!  After the long hard Winter we had here in New England and the cooler than normal April, they are a bit late in showing their color, but it won't be long now!!

Patties Creations Digital Stamps

Introducing, Pattie Gomez the Owner of Pattie's Creations...
"I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work. 
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
I have added many other images to my store in the past few years. I know have a large selection of images to fit everyone’s needs"

  6. Beautiful eye candy - thanks team. Going to try to play this week.

  7. What a lovely array of butterflies and flowers to inspire us. Thanks, DT members, and thanks for the weekly sketch.

  8. I so love butterflies, and the Design Team did a terrific job on their papercrafting...but as much as I love butterflies I decided to go with a different image. I love the sketches because there are so many layers and pieces to bring together.

  9. Found a lovely image from Pattie's Creations that worked well with this sketch. Thanks for another great challenge.
