Under the Weather Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #79 Tiddlyinks.

Good morning Sweet Sketch Wednesday followers, here it is another wonderful, warm summers day here in New Zealand. The last few nights we've been sleeping with a sheet over us and all our bedroom windows open just to cool the room down and for us to have a good nights sleep. My boys have 6 more days of school before they break up for the year and their Christmas break. I think they're counting down the days. This week I think their mother has lost her Mojo.......and I do hope it comes back real soon?

You still have your Mojo Kathie! This is the cutest card. I adore this image and your coloring is absolute perfection on it. Very nice colors - I love purples and blues together anyway. I love the paper combination here and the one with the texture is wonderful paper-pieced on the umbrella. It's so fun to see the kids' excitement at this time of year isn't it? I get just as excited - especially thinking about being off work for the holidays!!! This time next week you'll have your hands full! Have a great week!
Hugs to you,

Kathie, I know the "lost mojo" feeling! But I've gotta tell ya, this card is so super sweet, I think you've found it!!! Love this image and your coloring! Great papers too. Have yourself a wonderful week...and could you share some of that warm sunshine!! I'm tired of the snow and bitter cold already!!!


Jeannie said...

I just think this is very sweet and the colors are very fresh! We're still in the 70's here in Phoenix, but some rain would be wonderful. Take care!

Peace & Luv,

Oh Kathie, you haven't lost your mojo...I promise. Your card is soo cute. I love the embossed effect of the umbrella. I know that you paper pieced it but it looks embossed too. It is so cute. I love how you colored her hair.
It is nice and warm right now were I live but that just keeps changing from week to week. I think that is why I keep getting sick. It has really been a rough few weeks. Enjoy your nice warm weather and enjoy your holiday! Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year.
Hugs, Nancy

Kathie, I am wishing I could enjoy your warm weather! But at least we are not freezing this week...just lots of rain and dampness! Your mojo is not gone! This card intrigues me! I love your umbrells and the paper that matches it. Did you create it with a paper punch? It looks so dimensional! The dots are so clever for the rain effect! Your mojo is hot! This little gal is colored adorably. I love her hair and her boots and the puddle under her feet! Great effect!

Arlana said...
