Sponsor:  A Day For Daisies

If you love this image like I did, you can find it hereIt is called "Mary." Tammy is the owner and creator of all the lovely images at  A Day for Daisies.     This week if you play along at Sweet Sketch Wednesday you will have the opportunity to win a
$12 gift certificate

Thank you, Tammy, for sponsoring us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

I loved adding these beautiful flowers from Michael's and my sister, Nancy, must have had the same idea.  I though Arlana was going to use them too... She choose the other Mary image.  I suppose you can tell we are sisters.  I am always amazed at how often we will chose the same image but we usually collaborate and choose something different.

Well, take a moment and grab Arlana's sketch below and find a sweet image at
 A Day for Daisies and let us see what you can create!    Be sure to stop by

What You Eat Standing Up...Doesn't Count!
Sweet Sketch 153-96

I am so thrilled and delighted to have Deidre Mosher Designs as our sponsor this week at SSW!  Some of you may recognize some of the images on her site as it was formerly known as Shirley's 2 Girls. 

 Here is a little bit about Deidre.  What a fun colorful lady!  You will enjoy looking around her blog.

Deidre Mosher Bio Wildy Whimsical and Seriously Sassy Art is definitely a trademark of Deidre Mosher.

I have been in the business of art for over 25+ years. Starting out as a fashion illustrator, moving into Art Direction, where I did everything from print to TV...and eventually I found my way back to illustration. My art is just plain fun and my love of color is clearly evident in the designs I create. I'm currently licensed with a variety of designs are used on craft products, greeting cards/paper products, kitchenware, business products and such.
I am first and foremost an...Illustrator and Designer. I am inspired by seriously sassy & bold colors, but also love the 'wow factor' of classic black and white designs. I'm crazy for stripes and dots, and they are a repeated theme in my work.
As an Illustrator, I work in many mediums and styles, ranging from the line art to pastels...having fun adapting them to the latest project. I am inspired by some my favorite artists ...Matisse's use of bold color, Klimt's knowledge of figures and lavish attention to detail, and Gauguin's wild approach to his subjects. They are all so 'awe inspiring'! I'm happiest when I am in my studio and starting a new project...making a mess, experimenting...and even throwing paint.
Any day in the studio is a great day!

I usually get an idea when I least expect when the 'light bulb' goes off...I sketch and sketch and sketch...(hence the reason I buy tracing paper in bulk). I always begin with a pencil and paper, and it evolves from there. My favorite part of the process?? EVERYTHING...from beginning to end.
