Good morning and welcome to my blog. Well last week I was saying how warm our long hot summer had lasted and this week is totally the opposite. Easter weekend was 23 Celsius and people were swimming at the beach. On Monday night in the South Island of New Zealand it snowed and the cooler temperatures came our way. I woke up to 5 Celsius on Tuesday morning and by 9.30 am when I was taking the cat to the vet is was a whole 9 Celsius. During the day it did warm up but again last night it was cold again and snowing in parts of the South Island. My friends new home in Queenstown which they only shifted into on Saturday is snow white covered in snow. These temperatures are every early for this time of year and a wee bit of a shock to the system.
Welcome to our Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge.
Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards awesome work everyone there were so many beautiful cards and all your talents amaze me each week with what you produce.
This week we have another great sketch to use up those odd pieces of design papers we all have hanging around. This week I want to have a Vintage feel to my card but find it hard to create Vintage cards as I don't do DISTRESSING of edges very well, I'm a more clean edge person.
