Sketch #150 With A Day For Daisies

Hello  Sweet Sketch Wednesday friends!!!

It's Kathie here, from Auckland New Zealand, back again as your hostess this fortnight.  We're in the middle of Spring here in New Zealand and the weather can be very changeable, one minute it's warm the other it's cold or could be very humid and raining.  

I'm sharing a view today from my kitchen window, it's an amazing view over our pond something I look forward to all year waiting for the flowering Cherry Trees and the Wisteria over our bridge to flower.  It won't be long before all the flowers have gone and there will be a mass of green leaves.  Unfortunately neither of them flower for long enough.

Firstly our winner from the last challenge sponsored by Cute As A Button
is Treebug

 Please email to claim your prize

Our Top 3 in no particular order are

Aunty Sue

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

Our lovely sketch for this week as created by Kathie is another great one and I sure hope you will join us.
 Little Blue Button is our wonderful sponsor for thi challenge and here is a little bit about them:

Little Blue Button Stamps started it's life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company "Digital designs by Olga".  Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.  In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.  Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printable by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva
We have some inspiration from the DT to share with you, using some of the gorgeous images created by Little Blue Button, featuring our wonderful sketch.

Anne with 2 gorgeous cards:

Miss Lily and the snowman


Kelly using Chatting Charlie

Kathie using Flower

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to seeing all your entries.  Please have a read over the challenge rules if you are new to SSW2!
