I think I am feeling it as we are back from Madeira two weeks and I miss the sunshine...Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I have two cards to share with you today, I made 1 complete yesterday and finished off the other one today but as I was busy as a bee yesterday I wasn't able to photograph them until today.

This first card is for this weeks sketch over on CPS ,if you haven't checked CPS out before or this week have a wonder over there as there are some fantastic examples on show. I got these stamps quite recently and I have only had a little play with them so I dragged them out and had some fun. Although my card is completely different I did gain my colouring inspiration from this card by Itsapassion over on Splitcoastampers.
