SSW 196: Dearie Dolls

Welcome back!

It's another challenge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.   This week's sketch is really fun, and versatile.   I can already tell that I'll be using it again.

Our sponsor is is Mary Ellen from Dearie Dolls.   She has a very cool site.  She posts poetry and her artwork on her blog and it's all there for you to enjoy .... free.  Here's a bit more about her, in her own words:

I have always been a crafter and a stay at home mom that was able to make enough on handmades to help out and still be there for my kids who are all grown now. I have six grandchildren ranging in age from six months up to ten years. I started to draw digis about a year and a half ago. I like to write poetry and have illustrated some of my children's poems.

My digi blog is a place for card makers and others to download free images. I like to tell a little story with most digis and feel that the innocence of children is full of color, imagination and humor and so most of my artwork is a reflection of that. I truly hope that everyone that visits can find something useful and fun.

We'd like everyone to visit her site, download a favorite image and join in our sketch fun this week.  She has some wonderful images.

Our prize this week?  Why it's the instant gratification of freebie Dearie Doll images for everyone!!! Please be sure to leave Mary Ellen a sweet comment and let her know you found Dearie Dolls from SSW.
