Tuesday Morning Sketches 1st Birthday! Week 3

Good Morning!  I do hope your week if off to a great start!  It's Tuesday and the 3rd week of Tuesday Morning Sketches birthday celebration.  I am having a lot of with this.  I've really enjoyed seeing some of my old sketches being refreshed this month.

This week's sponsor is Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff - Lindsay was one of the first sponsors of TMS when I first began the challenge blog.  So this week is still to chose your favorite past sketch, but I've added a theme:  WHAT REMINDS YOU OF SUMMER.

I love flowers.  A funny statement from me since I grew up in a flower shop and hated them!  But I've matured since then.  Anyway, I can't say that I have a favorite flower - but I do love daffodils.  Their color is so vibrant and just screams summer to me.  I also participated in The Pink Elephant's challenge which was to use brown.

Digi-Image:  Fancy Flowers (LSS)
