Sweet Sketch Wednesday 153-96 and Deidre Mosher Designs

Good Morning.
It is Sweet Sketch Wednesday time again. I hope you will stop by and join us for a fun and inspiring week. Our DT has created some amazing cards for you. 
 I would like to intoduce Deidre Mosher.  She is our sponsor this week over at

And  here is a bio to tell you a little about her.
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.

Grand Prize Winner will Receive: $10 Gift Certificate
Wow, you won't want to miss out on this one.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday152 and Stamp Fairy

Good morning everyone. I just got back from visiting my daughter and her little family in New York.  I sure took the bad weather with me....however, it was sunny and warm when I left Arizona.  Go figure....I really thought it was going to be nice weather while I was there.  Well, at least the last few hours were.   I had such a nice visit. Best of all, I got re-aquainted with my grand kids.
They both warmed up really fast which is always nice for grandparents. My heart just melted when I got the leg hugs from my 18 month old grandson.  Not to take away the wonderful hugs from my grand-daughter, mind you...
