Sweet Sketch Wednesday #205 - A Day For Daisies

So, another Wednesday is upon us, which means it is time for a new challenge here on Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Is it just me, or do these Wednesdays seem to be going by very fast?

Anyway, welcome from an unusually sunny UK.  It would seem that Summer has finally decided to make a bit of an appearance in Yorkshire, and just in time for last weekend's bank holiday weekend.  It is most unusual for a bank holiday weekend to produce nice weather here, you can usually guarantee rain and cold, but for once we had some sunshine, which finally gave me the to put to use one of my creations from my other crafting passion - Sewing.

I was taught by my grandma last year to sew and I have spent the last few weeks making myself a new summer wardrobe in the hope that the weather may take the hint.  This was the dress that finally did it:

I had planned to spend last weekend making some more, but the weather was too lovely to miss out on.  I'm sure the weather won't last, so I can hold myself up on my craft room once again and get sewing and cardmaking.

But as usual, I am rambling and we should maybe get onto this week's challenge:

First of all, the winner of last week's Challenge  is...
