Chubby and Flowers

Good morning and welcome to my blog, thanks so much for stopping by.  We've been away at our beach house since 23 December and now it's time for a reality check and come home.  We've had amazing weather, beautiful sunny days and we had rain for about 15 minutes last Saturday just enough to wet the decking and washing on the line and then the sun came out even hotter. Between Christmas and New Year there were a few windy days we were then wishing for rain so the wind would stop. We had some wonderful days out on the boat and some lovely fish dinners from our daily catch and we also did a little dragging for Scallops and of course the boys on the back of the boat biscuiting.

Well enough of my summer holidays, on with Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Congratulations to last weeks winner and to our top 3 cards great work everyone.

This week Sally has another great sketch, it's awesome for using up all those scraps of design papers that we all have hanging around.  This sketch is really easy.

OMG Chubby is so stinking cute! Love the colors on this one too. Sounds like your vacation was fabulous (I'm a big fan of scallops and sun) but I gotta ask ... what is "biscuiting?"
