Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #105 - 44

   Summer Time Relaxing
"Swimming Lucy"
Good morning everyone, another wonderful Wednesday and that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  It's meant to be winter here in New Zealand and my youngest son went for a swim on Sunday at our Beach House in his shorts and no wetsuit.  It's still very warm here haven't had any heating on in our house and on Sunday it was 20c which is about 68f which is very warm for this time of year, and our April and May were the warmest since records have been taken in New Zealand.
Congratulations to out winners this week there were some amazing cards and so many creative ladies out there.

Kathie, you are such a darling!!!!!

Your card is a real beauty - I love the soft pinks and greens. I was stumped on the white background, but you colored it beautifully. Love that polka dot ribbon with a pretty bow!

Sounds like your winter is nicer than our Spring, we have been having terrible weather :(

Deanne :)

Oh Kathie, I can't even begin to tell you how much I love your card this week. She is sooo cute. I wish that was me lazily soaking up the sun. You have colored her up to perfection. Your added poke-a-dot bow and ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. I love your choice of colors too. have a great week! I love your background paper on your blog too!
Hugs, Nancy
