Watercolour flowers in turquoise and pink

I can't believe we have passed midsummer. The longest day of the year has gone and now it's inevitably getting darker again. But hopefully not colder! This must have been the coldest start of the summer in ages, makes you wish for a bit of that global warming you keep hearing so much about. I am currently typing up this post in my Sis' living room, under not one but two blankets! It's something about these old townhouses, they never seem to warm up. But tomorrow we are jetting off to a somewhat different climate as it seems to be 28 degrees in Cyprus at the moment! I can't wait to be able to walk around wearing nothing but a summer dress. And of course bathe in SPF50 and probably still get sunburn... I have a few posts scheduled for when I'm away but it will be quite quiet overe here for the next week or so. I hope my stamps don't feel horribly abandoned and depressed in the meantime.

Today's card is yet another chance to play with my awesome new STAMPlorations goodies. The card is inspired by the colour challenge over at Color Throwdown as well as the new sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I'm also linking up over at the STAMPlorations Anything Goes challenge.
