Wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 78

Wonderful Wednesday
1st December 2010
24 Sleeps to go!!!

Here it is the 1st day of December and it's a Wednesday. You all know that must means the 1st day of winter for lots of you and winter has come early in some parts of the world.

For me it's the opposite today it's the 1st day of summer and our summer has come early here as well. In the last few weeks it's been amazingly hot for this time of year, it doesn't' usually get this hot in New Zealand until after Christmas. Last weekend was very hot around 32 degrees Celsius and it was hard to sleep at night.

As I've said its 'Wonderful Wednesday' and that means Arlana has designed another wonderful sketch for you all to play with here at
