day of summer, we've lost 62 minutes of daylight and
in the next month, we will have lost 81 more!!

So I had to get this card done and posted!!!

Actually, I made it specifically for the new challenge at


This week, CAS-ual Fridays is bringing you a '2fer'

I took a few liberties with the sketch which are pretty
obvious, but I had too much fun with these images
