Good morning and welcome to my blog on this beautiful Autumn morning here in New Zealand.
Today I have two cards I made for
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 
this fortnight, I do hope you have to time to come and
join us with this fortnights challenge #156.

Here is another aspect of the two cards I made.  One with handmade die cut flowers, the others are purchased flowers for from my stash. 

Here is this fortnights sketch.
Sketch # 156

We are happy for you to change the oval to a circle if you wish.

Our prize this fortnight has been donated, Anne. 
Spring Flower Stamps 
isn't that appropriate as Spring has officially Sprung officially in the Northern Hemisphere.
That's sad that means is going to be getting colder and darker in the coming months in New Zealand.  
Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team members have created this fortnight using this sketch over at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Welcome everyone to my blog, well I'm a wee bit late posting my card this week but I have been busy with other commitments.  So excited today we have rain, yes rain I don't usually get excited over rain but it's the first real rain I've seen since Christmas Day.
