Wednesday 24 August 2022


 Hi, it's been another hot and humid day today- I've spent quite a lot of it sitting in the shade reading, too warm to do much. Thunderstorms forecast for tonight with rain most of the day tomorrow- it's very much needed here in the SE.

 I made this CAS card using Peony, an adorable image from Mo Manning ( it was a Patreon freebie, I don't think it's on the website yet). This little piggy knows how to keep herself cool! Peony is coloured with Copics and I've added a stamped sentiment.

That's it from me today- I'm off out to meet some friends for dinner- too hot to cook (my excuse..and I'm sticking to it!)

Thanks for visiting

She is so very sweet sitting there on the watermelon licking her popsicle. gorgeous colouring and CAS design Chris..sending some cooler weather over to you, but you can keep your heat if that's okay, it will get here soon enough and I'm not looking forward to it..must get my outside chair painted and ready to go under my tree..

What a real fun image Chris, would work for so many age groups.

The storm and rain has reached us, never been so pleased to see it either.

A gorgeous card Chris, I suppose its one way of keeping cool :)) although it would need to be a rather large one to hold me at the moment, hope you enjoyed your meal out.xx

Fabulous card Chris, the image is just too cute. It's been very humid here too but not much in the way of sunshine but a few showers. Hope you enjoyed your dinner with your friends.
