SSW 2: A Day For Daisies

Happy New Year!!

I hope your year is wonderful and full of happy surprises.  Did you stay awake long enough to ring in the new year?  I'm writing this post early so I'm not sure if I made it.  The PLAN is to watch for the AdAmAn club set off the fireworks on Pike's Peak.  Our new house has a wonderful view of the mountain so the hubs and I plan to toast in the year from our couch.  I'll let you know if I make it NEXT week.  To be completely honest, I don't think I will.  Every party has to have a pooper and I'm usually it!!  By 11:00, I'm DONE and snoozing on the couch!!

Hey, but here's something wonderful for the new year ... it's a new challenge blog.  Please join me in welcoming Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 to the block!  There will be fun challenges and even a few twists.

This week we are sponsored by Tammy and the whole gang over at A Day For Daisies.  Here's a bit more about ADFD:

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 Tammy is giving the winner a $12 gift certificate to her store.  Don't forget, in order to be considered for the grand poo-bah prize, you MUST leave a comment on the SSW2 blog.

I can't wait for the new year and all the interesting twists that Sally's NEW challenge blog will bring.  I hope you play!

  3. LOVE this. I always have a soft spot for an image from the back view, this is so cute. Great coloring and such a fun layout, too. LOL, I only made it until 9:30, all the kids were up later than that. Oh well, maybe next year!

  4. Happy New Year, Joanna! I love this sweet PJ image. Your card showcases it so well. While having my grandkids for the week...this was me the moment they were tucked into bed! I was having a hard time keeping up with the 18 month old...not as young as I use to be! Thanks so much, Joanna, for your friendship. I have enjoyed getting to know you and working with you. Hugs, Judi

  5. Joanna, this is just too cute! Makes me smile and reminds me of when my kids were little. Thanks for the memories. Happy New Year!!
