Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch#112

Classic Fashion Elegance

Hi everyone wow it's Wednesday again and that means its Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I'm back from they Sunny Gold Coast in Australia and back to a New Zealand winter.  Before we left the New Zealand winter had been one of our warmest on record and very little snow that's why we didn't go skiing.  This week its just the opposite, one of our coldest on record and snow every where.  Closing some of our Airports down, it's either a feast or a famine.

New Zealand's Snow
we don't have snow where we live.

Gold Coast Australia

I would rather be back on the Gold Coast or even Carins Australia at present as it's a lot warmer and a lot of sunshine and it's only a 3 hour flight from New Zealand.

Congratulations to all our winners this week there were so many amazing cards.

I hope you are bundled up and staying warm. It is so hot here that it is hard to imagine that it is cold somewhere else. Winter is coming though... Kathie, I adore your gorgeous, gorgeous card. That flower is amazing. It is perfect with your image and you couldn't have come up with anything better! I love it!!! I have never thought about using grays for clothing and you have pulled it off so well. There is such a vintage feel to your card. Your ribbon and lace is perfect as well. As is your papers. Gorgeous card, my friend. Have a wonderful week!! I am glad you are home safe and had a good time.

Hello Kathie, New Zealand snow is beautiful but like you, I am a fair weather person...certainly liking the warmer temperatures. I know it will be here before I am ready for it. Kathie, your cards are always so elegant. The turquoise and grey is just so lovely! That feather is the crowning touch! Thanks so much for your sweet comments. I will truly miss making cards with the DT. Have a great week!
Hugs, Judi
