Mother's Day Flowers


Good morning and welcome to my blog and to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
I can't believe that my week in Cairns Australia flew by so quickly we arrived in our front door at 1am this morning.
It's very warm and tropical over there compared to New Zealand's temperatures at present I've dropped from 30c yesterday to 16c today so I'm feeling a little cold.
I picked our cat up from the cattery this morning and he hasn't left my side since, as I've been trying to type this post he's been sitting on my hand and mouse all at the same time.

Congratulations to last's weeks winner and to our top 3 cards, sorry I didn't get around to looking at your cards after being away but this week I definitely will.

This week we have a very simple sketch but it's wonderful as it show off our lovely design papers.

Kathie, your card is beautiful. Love your color choice. Glad you had a nice warm time - sorry you are back to cold temps. We had warm temps the past two days and will be starting to cool down. Our leaves are turning and falling so my yard is a mess.

Pretty card this week, Kathie. I will adit to giggling a bit about your poor kitty. When we leave our kitty, she makes it known that she does NOT like for us to leave. Lots of pitiful cries and she does the "glue" thing too. Despite being standoffish, cats DO like their people! Have a great week.

Chris said...
