Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #154

Sponsor: DigiStamp Boutique
Image: Rosie on a Swing

Welcome everyone to another wonderful Wednesday.  Well it's not wonderful in Auckland today it's a little nippy, with thunder, lightning and very heavy rain oh and then the sun comes out.  Oh I do wish I was crafting all day today but I've got other thing to do.

I've just received a telephone call since I started typing this posting.  On Sunday my hubby and the boys took me out to lunch for Mother's Day  we went to a bar and restaurant where they had a colouring competition for the children to do for mum.  My youngest thought he would enter he's 10 years old and colours in quite well, but on the back he had to write a story why his mum was the best in the world which he did.  Out of over a 150 entries his was chosen and he won this amazing hamper for me, I so excited as I never win anything.  They told me they chose his entry because of the great colouring and his story he had written about me was amazing and sounded a lot older than a 10 year old that brings tears to my eyes.  He told me that if he won it for me that I had to give him a glass of wine as there is a Magnum of Sparking Wine in the hamper yes right a glass a sparkling grape juice I think......I'm so excited I pick it up on Saturday when I go to the boys Soccer games.  I'll tell you next week what is in it.......

Today is Wednesday that's right it's
 and congratulations to last weeks winners awesome cards ladies.

I bet your son was as excited about your win as you, what a special memory now!! Can't wait to see what all you got.
Love Rosie and your lace,ribbon and flowers are so pretty with your image and the way you colored her.
Sorry your weather is going downhill, we have had a bit of rain the last week or so, but sunshine the last day and it is so pretty. Windows up and the sound of lawn mowers in the air. Take care and have a great week.
