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.

Thanks for stopping by :)
