Good Morning!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is

Formerly Shirley’s 2 Girls

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.

 Today feels like a Monday to me. 
We had a bank Holiday on Monday, 
schools & most places of work were closed. 
My youngest daughters school added in 
a few exceptional closure days too, 
so I've been off work from last Thursday until today,  
I'm a tad confused as to what day of the week it is & 
I've been having a few blonde moments, 
so my card for this week fits perfectly...

I didn't want to make this image completely blonde,
I just left a wee streak of blonde at the front...

I can't wait to see what you create with this weeks sketch.
Be sure to hop over to the SSW Blog. 
The DT girlies have a gorgeous line up of cards to share with you.

Good Morning!

Our fab sponsor this week is

Hi everyone!
 Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring
 the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week.

I have been creating graphics and have licensed 
my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko,
 among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images 
about twelve years ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always
 carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits.   
It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, 
I LOVE everything about what I do!  It really helps that I have a very 
supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)

Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. 
The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it.
 ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images.

Thanks for playing along this week… happy coloring!

Meet 'Cross eyed Easter Bunny'
I love this image, the wee rabbit just looks so happy,

 I have that same smile on my face 
when I see Easter eggs lol!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a total chocoholic.
A few weeks ago, one of our local supermarkets 
had Easter eggs on offer, 
so I bought 10 to put away for nieces,
 nephews & the girls friends.
I asked Brian to take them to work, 
where I knew they would be safe from me.
I can sniff chocolate out from a mile off.....
Brian left them in the boot of the car. 
While I was unpacking groceries 
one day I noticed them & I took one.
I thought 'awk one will hardly be missed' 
my youngest informed her dad about my actions....
Brian removed the remaining 9 eggs from 
the car and hid them from me,
in his wardrobe!!! 
I found them & all I have to say is, 
I need to replace the eggs before Sunday :(

If only he had taken them to his office....

Please pop over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog 
& visit the DT's stunning Easter cards.

Can't wait to see what you all create this week :)

Thanks for stopping by.

For my card this week, I had the pleasure of using this
sweet image called 
'Study Bible Time'
As soon as I saw this image I thought of my SIL,
Her bible & coffee are two of her favorite things,
I had to have this image to make a card for her, 
it's not her birthday yet but I think it's nice to receive 
a card for no particular reason.
