The heat is on

Wow the temperatures have certainly hotted up here in the south east of England. Yesterday was 36c and today we could break the all time record of 38.5c....phew!
My garden flowers are loving all this heat and sunshine especially my aptly named.
The bold colours in my pots also reflect the heat of the summer
It registered 38c on my sunny patio when I got home yesterday from a visit to Bird World
I think this pig at Birdworld had the best idea of the day!
It is also wedding season; we have family one in August so I decided to make some new stock of wedding cards for Dotty's Teahouse where my cards are sold. Here is one of them. 
I used some glittery die cuts and a stamped sentiment. 
a little close up of the stamped Lili of the Valley sentiment which I accented with gold pen. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Addicted to stamps and More anything goes
Die cut Divas July anything goes
Crafting by designs 1/3 anything goes
Creative fingers 1/3 anything goes

Today is also rather special as it mine and my darling Hb's 38th Wedding anniversary. We will be celebrating and raising a glass of something bubbly.  We will find some shade as we celebrate. I will share the card I made for my Hb on Monday.

If you have this heat where you are keep cool.


Back soon,

Bye for now,

  2. Awe happy anniversary to you and M .... 38 years, where does it go to!!
    Your years married matches the temperature. :) Our temperature just reached early twenties, which is fine really, it was mostly cloudy and really breezy too.
