A crafty bank holiday

I'm back today to share my promised photos from the bank holiday when we had our little Daisy to stay again. The weather last weekend was wonderful; hot sunny days and it really did feel like summer was just around the corner. Unlike this week, which has been cold and wet. My digitalis is in flower, such spectacular flowers
 and the bees are busy gathering their nectar.

I have planted up my pots and Daisy helped me with the watering.

The next day she was desperate to get out to my studio. Here is my little crafter all ready to play.

She wanted to use the same Penny Black stamp which she had used the previous weekend so I got it out for her. This time she wanted to stamp it in different colours
 ........what was so funny is she asked me to hold up her work whilst she took the photo. She really is becoming quite the budding photographer too. The photo below was taken by her,...

She spotted my tin of gems and I offered for her to add a gem to each of the flowers. This she did...choosing a different colour for each one.

We also had some fun messy play which involved drawing round our hands.

Here is Daisy's finished work, not bad for a  2 1/2  year old is it!

We had time down the swings too.....there is nothing like being a Nanna. I really cherish our time together.

For my card today I thought I would share a very summery one.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

As you like it 1/3 favourite food or drink mine is of course tea as shown by my cup and saucer. The reason why is it is so quick to make and tastes divine....even better if served in a cup and saucer!

Artistic Inspirations 2/3 anything goes
Crafting from the heart  2/3 anything goes
Addicted to stamps and More 2/3  anything goes

Our hot sunshine is promised to make a return on Sunday......we were spoilt last weekend and I will be glad to see it back.  It's Friday already so it's time to wish you an enjoyable weekend; I hope to get back to some more gardening.
Thanks as always for your kind visits and sweet comments you take the time to leave.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
