"With Love" Sweet Sketch Wednesday #68

"With Love"
Good morning its another Sweet Sweet Wednesday and we all know what that means we have another weekly challenge for you at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.
Well I can't say it's such a sweet month of September here in New Zealand they call it the Spring Equinox well this is the first time in my life that September has been so changeable. With Earthquakes, Snow, more Earthquakes, more Snow, Sunshine, Flooding and now Storms and very high winds, I'm so glad that we are only getting the storm where we live. It's meant to be spring the daffodil's are out and they baby lambs a being born and its been so cold in the South Island its snowing and the lambs are dieing. I'm so glad we are off to Australia on the 1st of October its very hot over there and I'm looking forward to some warmer weather.
Now lets have a look at what Sweet Sketch Wednesday has in store for you this week.
This card this week is completely out of my comfort zone and I tried a totally different colour combination for me but I just love this image.

This is so sweet! I love that image, she looks so cute in those shoes that are too large. Great colors, too.

I'm sorry for not visiting your blog last week. And I'm really sorry to hear about the crazy weather. That's so sad that the lambs aren't surviving. If I forget to say this later... have a great vacation in Australia. You could come to Florida, we still have hot temps. :0)

Hi Kathie, Don't you just love these images. They are so cute. Your is colored up super cute. I love the fall colores you used on your card. Your little heart button and nestie just adds the perfect final touch! Have a wonderful Holiday! Stay warm!

What a sweet girl card. I love that you did it non-traditional girl colors! Love how you did the sentiment. So glad you got to finally play the DTC!

Your weather in New Zealand sounds amazing. Its so odd to think that when your having fall, another part of the world is experiencing Spring.

Oh Kathie, for being out of your comfort zone..this card is beautiful. I really love your colors and the papers. She turned out so cute and that fun heart button find is such a perfect embellishment. I also love the nesti label and think I will have to collect that one too! This card couldn't be any cuter. Hoping Spring will really pop for you soon!

We're off at the end of October to Cork, not very far but first full family holiday in two years. Woohoo! Love your card this week, you should venture outside your comfort zone more often eh?? Results are well worth it.
