Thankyou card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the
 weekend whatever you have planned.I had to get up early again,
 ( 4.30 am) as I was coughing so much grrrr.  It's a bit ( no... a lot)
 chilly here today , so we lit the new woodburner 'Woody' today.
 Oh boy does it  heat the whole house quickly. We have had to
 open all the doors throughout the house now, which is great as
 we now have lovely  ambient heat all through it. Right enough
 waffling, onto my second  card for this weeks 'Less is More'
 challenge. It's week 91 and a sketch this week which is.....
come and have a closer look at my card.  I used the distress
 ink technique where you ink onto an  acrylic stamping block
first then spray with water then dab that onto cardstock. I
 think mine resembles a  nice sky ?? I embossed over it too,
 reminds me of raindrops....sort of ?? I drew a few birds
 stamped a tree and coloured a little here and there. Quite
 pleased with it now, I see so many things  wrong with my first
 card now...isn't that always the way??
ps. I do hope you all remembered to turn your clocks back.
It took us ages to figure out how to do the tv time. Sooooo many
menu's etc. ...I swear it's worse than a computer that tv. When they said 
all singing and dancing I think they just mean VERY COMPLICATED.
