    Enjoy your summer, you deserve it :-). That’s great news that Rick will be back in August, even just briefly.
    I thought it was a lovely looking sketch but boy did I struggle with it. I wanted to use bright summery Primas, but it’s too wet and windy and rainy – tree branches down all over the place this morning. So summer wasn’t working for me 🙁
    Hugs, Sabrina
