Records here in the south of England are being broken as our heatwave continues......we had 33c in the shade on Thursday and Friday...goodness knows what it was in the sun...it really feels like I have moved to Rhodes! My garden is looking a bit frazzled but I still have some colour in my pots and my tomatoes have ripened beautifully.
Billy has been flaking out in any shade he can find.
I enjoyed my first crop of tomatoes when Daisy stayed last week, there is nothing quite like the flavour of home growns.
I am sharing a tag today, as we are meeting up for a family lunch at my son's. The fun egg stamp is Rubber Dance and provided a perfect seat for my Tim Holtz, very dapper paper doll to sit on in shade of the tree. The die cuts are a mix of Tim's and Cheery Lynn and the sentiments a mix of Tim's rub ons and small stickers. The stencils are Tim's and Visible Image.
I thought my hearts, made from corrugated card and inked and flicked with gold paint looked a little like sun dried tomatoes! My son has become the most avid gardener...much to my amazement but total delight and spends many hours tending his gorgeous sunny garden.
Family Times together, now that our children are grown, are few and far between but they are a true delight when then happen and I like to record them.
We all have our sunhats and deckchairs packed and will enjoy some precious family time together today.
I would like to enter my tag into these challenges;
Rubber Dance colour theme or nature Their stamped eggs are perfect to sit my dapper chap on!
