Today I decided to join in the lovely ladies of From the Heart Stamps weekly sketch with a twist, which you can see below, the lovely design team has created a wonderful variety of cards for our inspiration, which you can see over at the From the Heart Stamps blog.
On the weather front, I am still wearing little more than a singlet and pair of shorts around the house, I have drunk a copious amount of water today, the washing dried in under 1.5 hours and smelt like freshly ironed clothes as it came off the line. Today we had a 36C day about 97F, I’m looking forward to the near normal summer temperature tomorrow of 25C and Saturday’s 19C will be wonderful (I am a true cool climate girl), but our summer is planning on continuing rising back up to 30C early next week. Any one got a spare bucket or two of snow they’d like to share.
One bonus of the heat wave is that nothing takes too long to dry, including the PVA glue with a load of glitter tipped on top!
