Hello Everyone, hoping you are all tip top, but for those of you who are struggling a bit for whatever reason, I hope things will get better for you soon.
What about this weather!!, blooming marvellous!! We are in a mini heatwave up here in the North of Scotland, I hope that it's as good where ever you are. If I'm honest it's just a tad too hot for me, but it's so lovely to have some good weather at last, and it's lasted more than two days, that must be a record. But, unfortunately our schools returned on Tuesday, when it was scorching, just typical.
We had a super time at the BBQ on Saturday, even although the weather wasn't too great, we all managed to sit outside for the food and a bit of music, then had to beat a hasty retreat indoors as it started to rain, here are the "Boys" giving us Ring of Fire,
There is a fabulous view from Ken and Jan's house and we had Red Kites flying overhead as it was their feeding time too.
Anyway, my card today was made for Simon, 3rd from the left, who is about to become the big 60, and I've made a card for the Boys to give him;
Now I wanted something humorous, and I trawled all the digi websites that I know and finally found this one by Dr. Digi and thought it just perfect for Simon. He is a Cockney, and plays all sorts of instruments, in my mind a one man band and a Cockney go together, don't know why, and his rendering of Always look on the Bright Side of Life is hilarious.
So this has been water coloured and mounted on to an embossed black background, SB musical notes. I think it's a Tattered Lace Stave Die, and peel offs. No sparkle or glitter on this one. I think it will go down well.
It's going to be Ken's 60th soon too, but will show that one another day.
As I said we have been enjoying sitting out in the garden, and sometimes there is a fight for the seats,
Alistair left his chair for a minute and Teallach too his chance,
Alistairs' not amused, but Teallach didn't vacated the seat too easily. What about the style??, this is the fedora Alistair wanted, it's as cheap as chips and if it gets caught in the rain it will turn to paper mache, however it's the 3/4 trousers and the socks that get me, lol.
Finally, went to check on the swans, and there are still all eight cygnets, but my what a size they are now,
The post is a bit photo heavy, sorry about that, but I know some of you lovely Followers have been interested in the swans.
Thanks to everyone who kindly left comments on my last card, so very much appreciated.
Off now to see puppy Milo, haven't seen him since Monday as Damian has been working from home, I'll be given a big sloppy welcome.
See you all soon, enjoy the rest of your day,
