Buzzing By to Say Hi!

Hello Everyone, how are you all today? hopefully steering clear of the awful floods that's happening in some areas in England, going by the news on the TV it all looks so frightening. Seems so strange to think that the other week we were basking in the glorious sunshine.
We still have the closeness but today it's dull, but no rain, but much cooler in the house and more comfortable.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciate you finding the time to visit and leave a comment.

I've got a card today that I made a few weeks ago and it fits the Challenge for Moving Along With the Times; http://movingalongwiththetimes.blogspot.com/2019/08/103-be
es-june.html
I've made this card with a lovely stamp set from Woodware Stamps and coloured with Zig watercolour pens, the sunray stencil is from MFT, sentiment is from the stamp set/

Just a short post today, I want to catch up with your blogs too before Downton Abbey comes on. Yesterday's episode was marvellous with the wonderful Shirley McLean as the American Grandmother, and she was the perfect foil for our own Maggie Smith as the English Grandmother, the script writer had given them the most fabulous lines, they were hilarious.

So I'll say cheerio for now and see you soon,

Aww, Kate, what a fun little scene, love the sun burst and your little cabin in the woods. Some parts of the US had bad flooding too! Water levels here are high and some folks along our mamy lakes and rivers are nervous.

Hugs

Love your bee hive and bee with the sunray, such a happy card and lovely colouring Kate. Isn't all that rain in Yorkshire so awful, I hope they get to fill the dam before any more damage is done and people lose their homes. Good to hear you like Downtown, I loved it.

A lovely summery card Kate. Fab stamps and great design.
Love the greeting too lol! We have been very lucky considering the problems they have in Whaley Bridge. I do hope they manage to make the dam safe and keep everyone safe and sound. Must be very frightening! Have a good weekend and enjoy Downton Abbey, a great series.
Hugs Jennifer xx.

Gorgeous card Kate. Super design. He's a fun bee and sentiment. Saw the news about the floods. It looked like something you would only see in a disaster film didn't it. Must be horrendous for the people. Hope you managed to to catch Downton Abbey. Its been great to see it from the beginning again.
Have a great weekend.
