SSW188 and A Day For Daisies

We have exciting news this week.  We have a new member of our Design Team over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
I would like to introduce

Holly Gwilliams

We are excited to have Holly join our team.

Here is a little about Holly

Hello, my name is Holly and I live in Yorkshire, UK, where it generally rains and does not much else, but that gives me plenty of time to sit indoors and craft. I have been making cards for about a year now. It started as something to keep me occupied while the hubby (or fiance as he was at the time) watched football (soccer to anyone in the US) and it became a bit of an obsession, so much so that my spare room is now my craft room and I no longer have to sit at the kitchen table.

My other hobbies include sewing (I run a little business making bags and make my own dresses when I can), tap dancing, following MotoGP and reading. I also hope to start studying for my history degree later this year, as well as doing some creative craft courses at my local college, but first I need to go on my honeymoon as I got married over Christmas.

I sometimes wonder how I find time to do all this, and see my friends, as by day I am a legal secretary too.

Crafting has become my passion and I am so excited to be a DT member for SSW.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate your comments!


  1. What a gorgeous card Nancy, especially with the wonderful paper piecing and the texture on the embossed panel. I love that dear image - will have to remember that for next time. I remember that adorable card you did the first time with the sketch because I loved that tulip paper you used. It's so fun to go back and see what we did the first time with these sketches isn't it? Have a fantastic week.

  2. Nancy, I love both of your cards. The image on 'Walking in the Rain' is simply perfect for the weather we have been having here in the UK at the moment. Holly x

  3. Well aren't both cards simply adorable!!! I love your little girl in her paper pieced dress and umbrella!! So sweet!


  4. Both are cards are lovely. Love how you paper pieced the umbrella and rain coat. I soooo love paper piecing, it is one of my favorite techniques. Have a great week.
    Hugs, Heide
