Happy New Week...

Hi from a very cold Scotland. Err is this not meant to be summer! Its back to chilly and I really have been thinking of popping the central heating on!!! 
Last night for the first time in ages I made a card just for fun. 
Its the Summer Holidays for me with Design Team work with just a couple of  GDT commissions to do with Rick over the next couple of months. So I thought I would just play. I had a blast.  Had some music on and got lost in my colouring. 
I am doing an art course online just now so ive been busy with it the last couple of weeks. Its only a 7 week course but Ive learnt so much already!! Im hoping I can apply what I learn in it to my card making. 
Im will be visiting everyones blogs in the next couple of days to see what you are up too.
