Sunny days and Sketch Saturday challenge #53

Would you look at that.... my counter has passed 10 000... wow! A big thanks to everyone that pops by to say hello.

We've had a few REALLY nice days here over the week end. Hubby was off, for a change, and we spent the days together outside. One of the days we went to a park not too far from where we live, where we could look at farm animals and "play" with the goats. The girls loved stroking the goats and feeding them grass.As you can see, the weather was perfect for a day out...
We brought a barbecue and some sausages.... that way we didn't even have to go home for dinner....
The girls have had their first swim in a small lake not far from here too... and, to my surprise the water wasn't too bad/cold either... I hope summer is here to stay...

Although the weather has been really nice I've managed to squeeze in some card making (late in the evenings, after the sun has set and the girls have gone to bed...). I found it so fun to do the Sketch Saturday challenge last week that I decided to have another go this week. Here is my contribution to this weeks sketch.
I couldn't resist using this bright yellow after all the sunshine... Again, I've used my new "spring girls" stamps from Panduro. Coloured with water colour pencils.
The sentiment is mounted on pop dots, and I added some gems for a bit of "bling"...

And look... I managed to add my signature... (got it from here)

I just love the new cards with the Panduro girls. :-)

And I totally relate to taking advantage of the warm summertime weather! Enjoy it while it lasts. Those horns on that sheep look scary!

Håper det blir en sånn fin sommer i år.Ser at dere har hatt ei flott helg utendørs.Jentene likte seg sammen med dyrene. Kanskje vi får finne noen sånne steder å stoppe på, når vi skal kjøre nordover.
Nå er det jobbehelg. Klem.

Takk for koselig kommentar! Artig at du kunne "kjenne" igjen tegningene på minnene fra din mors minnebok. Ja jeg er nok på alder med henne..hihi;)

Ser dere har hatt en riktig så flott utflukt! Med grilling og til og med bading! Oy det må nok ha vært litt kaldt!

Ønsker en riktig god helg!
