Sketch it #175 @ AnnaBelle Stamps

Happy New Year! We are home from our mammoth Christmas holiday/adventure, visiting so many family and friends (we clocked about 3500kms all up). It was lovely seeing everyone but boy does it feel good to be home. There is no place like home 🙂

This week at AnnaBelle Stamps it is time for this month’s challenge, which is a sketch.


We are having the most beautiful summer weather here on the South Coast. It was a cool and overcast 24 degrees today, unlike the majority of NSW! At my parent’s farm in North West NSW, it was a sweltering 44 degrees (that’s 111.2 degrees Fahrenheit!) Boy am I glad for our cool, coastal sea breezes. My card today reflects the warm colours of summer.
