Grumpy Weather...Cheery Card


We have been super lucky the last 2 weeks with temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius. But alas, this week is oh so crummy :(

The sun is nowhere to be found and to top it off I have a very grumpy baby as well! Oh how I NEED the sun....for my sake and the kids! I have however been training my brain to weed out the whining and turn it into sweet classical music......NOT!!!!
LOOK! This is what I've been looking at all day........... Isn't she a doll? LMBO

Well on the brighter side of things, I decided to make a super cheery card for a little girl that is turning 6. Alot of scraps used on this one. I can't seem to get through them! And what's a card without a few challenges to enter?.......
