Arctic Fun

Welcome to my blog, I can't believe that it's only 18 days until Christmas, oh where has 2017 gone to?
Today is the 7th day of Summer here in New Zealand and for early December we're having a heat wave, yesterday where we live it was 32c (89.6 f) which is very hot for this time of year.  We usually get the temperatures in January and February.  I hopped into my car yesterday and it was 38c left like hopping into an oven.
It even feels too hot to craft.
Here is another look at my card using one of our sponsor's images from the Arctic Fun Set by DigiStamp Boutique.

Sketch #127

It is an easy sketch and I got my inspiration from my husband shirt whilst I was ironing it.

All images/designs are created and copyright owned by Sally-Ann Hancock.  My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs.  Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them.
