There is certainly an autumn feel to the mornings, I have been lucky to get the washing dry between rainy days. Thursday found me with a flat battery on the car, Luckily at home, so garage came out and gave me (and the car ) a jump start. A new battery on my way to work so good to go for winter, but I also noticed that I need a new tyre before my MOT at the end of September.....It's only money lol

Good morning

What a difference in our weather, the nights are really drawing in and we have had cloudy and wet days for the past week. I know we need rain, but I would like some sunshine back. This is a thank you card I made this week lilac is one of my favorite crafting colours.

I also made two quick birthday cards, I had forgotten my grandsons birthdays in Aussie. One now 15 and the other 18, they grow so quickly and I have only met them 5 times, still, better than not at all. I was so anxious to get them in the post I forgot the photo's !!

I hope you are enjoying your summer, whatever the weather. Thanks for dropping by.
