Sweet Sketch Wednesday with Lacy Sunshine Stamps

That's right everyone only 18 sleeps to go and Christmas 2016 will be here.
I can't believe it really as this time last year we were about to leave for an eight week holiday of England and Europe.  Where has 2016 gone to as it's past by so quickly and that means I'm another year older!!!

I hope your Christmas cards are made, the house is decorated and your shopping is done and wrapped under the tree and all you have left to do is prepare your feast for Christmas day.  Oh yes and I wish I was that organised.

Our design team here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 want to help you on your way with your selection of Christmas cards so we have another awesome sketch to create with.

Be sure and come back later today, Anne will be posting our winner from the last challenge.

Now on to this week's sketch I loved working with this sketch and with the awesome image I used from our sponsor.

Sketch #79

If you think I've had too many Christmas drinks by the numbering your mistaken, here's a sketch we were going to use last year but was changed for something else.

Feel free to flip or twist the sketch if that suits you, but we need to be able to see that it is there. Also don't forget to put a copy of the sketch in your post and leave a comment for a chance of winning.  Honestly I don't believe you'll need to flip or twist this sketch and you'll love this inside out circle as it is.

 This fortnight we're trilled to be working with Lacy Sunshine Stamps, these images are just so cute.


Heather Valentin  is  creative ,  award winning,  modern-day  fantasy and  whimsical  artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years. 
She  began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age. For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where colour,beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and  brush stroke. Her  subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her  dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's  artist portfolio  has  expanded to include such  clients  as   Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils  and can now be found  at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across 
the globe. 
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
