My Favorite Flower Pot For You!

Well friends, it's been 10 years since my sister, Arlana, began the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch site.  My other sister, Nancy, and I diligently helped in the weekly process of starting something new, exciting and a place where others could display their talents.  Later it was changed to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 where other team mates have kept things running.  We've developed many new friends along the way.

This challenge is a throwback to our very first sketch that Arlana created.  I wasn't a designer the first week because my sisters had to convince me that I could do this.  I have so appreciated their encouragement as I found a new love and an excitement for creating my own style and to also try new techniques.  My first week on the Design Team was week two.  I barely knew how to use the paper cutter.  LOL.

Thank you, Kathie and Anne, for wanting to have a throwback from our first week.    Nancy is playing along; however, Arlana is in the middle of moving and her lovely craft room is all packed up.

We hope you will play along and enjoy the fun.  A Day for Daisies is our sponsor this week at SSW2 and is offering a $12 gift certificate to our Grand Prize Winner.


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!
