October morphs into summer

The Indian Summer continues here in the south of England and we even had overnight temperatures of 18c during the last 2 nights. It is so lovely to extend to the summer. I have enjoyed an outside week, with lots of catching up with friends and family. Yesterday my Hb and I went down to the South Coast to catch up with our DD and Jack on her day off.

We enjoyed a walk along the beach in the sunshine, the sea sparkled 
and Jack took in the view while relaxing in his buggy after lunch.
 Lots of other people had also taken the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful October warmth.
I also had the joy of seeing Daisy's face when I collected her as from school as a surprise 😁

My card today is a new baby card for Dotty's with lots of blue, just like the sky and sea we saw yesterday. I have used my really old House Mouse hummingbird stamp coloured with Promarkers and a knitting pattern embossing folder for the background. It is up for sale at Dotty's Teahouse, Carshalton High Street, SM5 2AE

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

House Mouse and friends Mondays Anything goes
I love Promarkers anything goes
Passion for Promarkers animals

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to visit Chartwell with my Mum and Dad today...and yes the sun is still shining. Sending some your way if you need it.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
