Feeling Summery Today!

Ok so the title is a total fib, cus its blinkin freezing here in Stoke on Trent in the UK....even Nico (my skunk) has given up & stayed in his bed. Usually he chases me around the bedroom wanting his breakfast....but not this morning!!
Today I'm here to show you my 'Try Stamping on Tuesday' creation. We have a great sketch for you to follow this week (certainly had me thinking) you will find it here, or if you scroll to the bottom of my post you will find it there.
