  2. Today in New Zealand you would think that summer had arrived again it was so hot I even got too much sun, standing watching my son play tennis against another school. Congratulation to Carol and to our top 3 cards great work ladies. Thanks to Sally-Ann for sponsoring us which is very much appreciated. To Sally for another great sketch and Linda for a lovely posting I'm so jealous that you're going into Spring and here in New Zealand it's meant to be Autumn. Take care everyone hope you enjoy this weeks sketch and happy crafting and I look forward to seeing your creations.
