Sunbathing Granny

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday.  This week has been great I have my two boys home on a school break, not so good for them as it hasn't stopped raining.  Today is the first fine day we've had since they've been home.  We are now at the start of Spring but on Monday evening it turned bitterly cold and was snowing in both the North & South Island mountain ranges and today's a lovely sunny day.

Congratulations to our winner and top 3 from last week great work everyone.  Because it's the last Wednesday of the month week means we have a blast from the past with a twist.

Sketch #234
Blast from the past sketch.

The twist this month is 
 Incorporate something to do with Coffee, be it the digi, the colour...  the sentiment...  Think Coffee!! 

This week I rotated the sketch something I don't usually do, but I loved this image and by rotating the sketch it worked perfectly.

Here is my blast from the past Sketch #234 posted on 27 November 2013 you can view the post here.

This week our sponsor is the lovely Heather Dennis

A fab card Kathie, so love that little lady and those coffee/sandy colours. And so different from your previous card using the same sketch, (also lovely!) Shame you didn't get the weather when your boys were off - so typical that! Bet you still had fun tho! Jx

Suze said...

Fantastic card Kathie. Love how well the DP works with this wonderful image. Granny looks like she is enjoying the beach. Great that you have your boys home for the hols - I'm sure the weather will get better! Thanks for joining in the Anything Goes challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week.
