Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #159

Image: Coffee Break

Welcome everyone to another wonderful Wednesday.  I'm sitting here typing up my posting and my nose and finger tips are icy cold.  We're currently having frosty mornings but today it's rained over night here in New Zealand which you've got to expect for this time of year.
My boys finish school on Friday or after their sports on Saturday for a 3 week break.   Both boys lost their Soccer games on Saturday but Liam won his Water Polo game 13-O which was a great result.  Their team is doing so well this year they have only lost 1 game and only by 1 goal difference. I'm so proud of them all as this team have come such a long way  after starting out not one of them had played a Water Polo game before and now have been playing together for the last 
18 months .

Wonderful Wednesday means it's another 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards from last week, awesome work ladies.

This week Arlana
 has another great sketch for you to work with.  I know you'll like this one as it goes together so quickly and shows off those lovely design papers.

What a cute card...sure to warm you up on a Rainy NZ day. Love the matching dot paper.
You sound like you have been busy. The water polo game sounded exciting. We just had Soccer tryouts, such a stressful time. Mia made her team and it looks like it has great potential. Enjoy your break.
Hugs, Heide

Kathie, what a great card! Love purple and green together! I love how you had the ribbon woven through as well. Your flowers match perfectly! I hope that you enjoy your time with your boys when they are on vacation. I sure have been enjoying my time home this summer already!

We sure could use some of that rain. It has been so dry here. Had to smile about your boys games. I went to my son's softball game this last week and it was the only one they lost. I guess I won't go to any more of them. I think I jinkzed them. I didn't see the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Was it good? I sure love your card this week. Of course, you have used some of my favorite colors. And, your papers are so pretty. I love your little flowers and tha added glossy accent. Have a great week.
Hugs, Nancy

Peace & Luv,

Kathie, I am afraid you will have to put up with me one more week, lol. I will miss you all so much as well.
I am in LOVE with your card, the ribbon through the die is fabulous and your papers and those handmade flowers, yum!!
Sorry you are so cold, we have just had a heat wave with temps in the 90's. Hang in there and congrats to the boys in their sports.
