SSW2-56: A Day For Daisies

There are several wonderful things about living in Colorado Springs (beautiful views are at the top of the list) but one of the fun things that locals can do is tell the month of the year using only their ears!  What?!!  True!!  At the end of May, the Air Force Cadets graduate and the Thunderbirds roar overhead to help them celebrate.

The Jets fly in synchronized patterns and it is just amazing to watch their precision ... the ROAR of their jet engines is pretty fun too!

Usually their 6 pilots arrive about a week early and we get about a week to enjoy them as they practice navigating the mountain thermals in the area.  The boys and I enjoyed watching their practices in the Stop and Drop line at their school!

Actually, the entire Academy is gorgeous.  I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the area.

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for some FUN over here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  We have a new sketch and the return of a favored sponsor.

Before we get started with our new challenge, I want to announce last week's winner.  Yippee, it's YOU ...

This week we welcome the return of Tammy from A Day for Daisies.

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!

This week our lucky winner will receive: 
Our Prize:  $12 Gift Certificate
