A Sunflower Day
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 9

Hope you are having a sunny day. This past week we had a record breaking heat wave...104 degrees. Any where else in the US it wouldn't have been a problem but in the Pacific Northwest many of us do not have air conditioners as we usually only get a few days each summer that are in the 90's....but with a week long in the high 90's, it was hard to get the house cooled down at night. But I am not complaining as we had an usually cold Spring which I did complain about. Now it looks like we are back to normal temps....50's at night and 70-80 during the day!!! Perfect for excercising, gardening, etc.
Well, I created this card for my sister's new sketch site.....Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This week is Sweet Sketch 9. We are having so much fun creating cards for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. You will want to take a few minutes to visit and see all the fun cards that have been created during the past 9 weeks. We have such a fantastic Design Team...they are sooooo creative. I just love waking up on Wednesday morning to see all the fun cards that everyone has designed. Then I love watching to see who will play along and what their cards will look like. So make sure you are one of them.
I had so much fun creating this card. I found this wonderful Basic Grey Sunflower dollar stamp at an independant craft store in Tacoma. I'm just getting started with coloring-in stamps...wish I had the Copics but I probably will begin to invest on one of my trips to Utah when I can get a good special or use some coupons. I loved adding the Quickuts Sunflower to this card. Hope it reminds you of those Indian Summer Days....which in case you don't a nice warm or hot fall day....I know they are just around the corner for us. In the Northwest we long for Indian
Summer Days to extend our short summers.
