Well we’ve definitely had some summer moments here in the last week! Here in Sydney its been the hottest week in 85 years and today was a shocker with 41°C – thats 105.8°F for my American friends. Way too hot for this Diva!

When I saw this weeks sketch I freaked – circles ugh … but … not to let the team down I changed it a little. During the week I also saw Gretchen’s Diva Colour Challenge and thought why not combine the two?? They are such purty Colours!

So here’s this week’s Utah Divas Sketch challenge …

and here is the Utah Diva’s Colour Challenge …

now arent they pretty colours???

Now for my card ….

[singlepic id=1202 w=320 h=240 float=center]

As you can see I still did use a couple of circles. Thats the great thing about sketch challenges – you can ‘interpret’ them how you feel and my poor Beautiful Wings Embosslit has been feeling a little neglected of late so I used that as well.

The flowers come from the lovely Sale•A•Bration set Sweet Summer which I got for free this week just by ordering $100 worth of Stampin’ Up! products. Gotta love free stamps! So if you’d like this Sweet Summer set or one of the other Sale•A•Bration stamp sets you can email or phone your order through to me – you’ll get one free set for every $100 you order.

Maybe youre thinking you’d like to try this Stampin’ Up! Business opportunity for yourself and if so now is the time to join. If you join during Sale•A•Bration you will receive a bonus free stamp set from the Idea Book & Catalogue to the value of $79.95 and I’ll also give you a Sale•A•Bration set of your choice plus a bonus ‘joining’ gift from me.

Have Questions? need more details? then feel free to contact me or check out the information online by clicking on the “Join my Team” button in the menu up the top. You can join online so there are no forms to fill out and send off – the hardest part of joining is deciding what stamp sets and inks to choose!

Now its time to skip over to the lovely RuthieB‘s blog and check out her lovely creation for this sketch and here’s the full list of all the Utah Divas Sketch Design team …

  1. Hi Leonie,

    I just love your sketch this week and every other week to but i think more so as you have added those beautifull flowers i actually got that die and had a play with it this week it is great.

  2. Gorgeous card!! I can’t believe you’re that hot, and we’re FREEZING here in the sunny southwest!! Just not used to the cold weather!! Wish we could average the two places together!! haha!!

  3. Love this interpretation Leonie!!! The colour schemeis so bright and vibrant….and the sets you have used suit it to a “T”.
    Hear you TOTALLY on the heat thing…roll on the cool change due tomorrow. Our poor (1 and only) pedalstal fan got a wee flogging today. All the windows open just trying to get some air moving thru!! The weather bureau PROMISED 1 more stinker of a night then respite 2 moro…..fingers crossed.
