A "New" Adventure begins... SSW 2!!

Hi there friends!!  Happy New Year!!  It's Wednesday and that does mean it's time for a new Sketch Challenge but this week is a bit different.  Last week was the last Challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...  This week is the first Challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!  With Arlana and Judi stepping down, I have been asked to continue the Challenge.  This is a new adventure for me as there is so much that goes on behind the scenes of a Challenge Blog...  I really had no idea!!  But, I am excited to give it a go...

This week's Sponsor is 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's Winner will receive a $12 gift certificate to A Day for Daisies!!

And here is our first Sketch...

And here is my card...

  1. Happy New Year, Sally! Love your little chickadee! Your sketch is stunning this week and I love your creation and what everyone else has created too. Thanks for all your help at SSW especially this past year when you started creating the have done such a fabulous job for Arlana and I love what you are doing with SSW2. Thanks for carrying on Arlana's legacy! I'll miss not being behind the scenes but I know it will be hard to stay you will probably see me around enjoying the fun that you are creating!
    Hugs, Judi

  2. Happy New Year! Love your card and the sweet image and all the layers. I just love my birds and feed them every winter, I so enjoy seeing the different birds that show up at my feeders. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Well you did it! Great job bridging the gap between Sweet Sketch Wednesday and SSW TWO!!! I am soo excited to be part of this new gig. Enjoy the ride!

  4. You card is stunning Sally, I love how you have framed your image. Your colors are so pretty together. You did an amazing job with the transition of SSW and SSW2. We are off to a great start. I will really miss woking with my sisters every week on the post, etc. But, I must admit, I needed a little break too. It has been nice not to have so much to do especially since I am on two DTs. Thanks so much for carrying on SSW. I would have hated to see it stopped. You are doing an amazing job! Happy New Year!!

    Hugs, Nancy
