Tulip Jar

 

Merry Christmas 
from 
a hot and summery
New Zealand.
Good morning and welcome to my blog, as I've said in my previous posting there isn't enough hours in my day as I know all of us have so much to do at this time of year.




This week over at Sweet Sketch
Wednesday 2 we had to pick
our favourite sketch of the year, I picked Sketch # 119 which you might remember one that  I designed, here's the sketch and my card that I made for that challenge.




My reason for choosing this sketch is because I loved making this card and the fresh clean look it had also I won a lot of challenges with it so that's my reasoning.






Now onto this fortnights card using our sponsor's image
