LGCG July Sketch

Here is the sketch I did for our crop last weekend and the page I made with the crop kit.

JULY 17 birds of a feather

The journalling explains that, as any mini owner will know, minis attract each other in car parks. On this occasion I returned to find Gertie’s twin parked next to her. She is a two-seater Mini Roadster and there aren’t many of those about.
