End of summer??

Well, the weather seems to be changing here, after our fantastic 4 days of clear blue skies we now have clouds and showers, all good things must come to an end. On the bright side, my car was not quite as expensive in the garage as I thought it may be, and then when I got a quote from last years insurers, they were the best around, and less than I thought I may have to pay......always a silver cloud....the craft fair at Leigh On Sunday was good, Jules spent a lot of money, I spent some on behalf of Aunty Sue, but she loved what she got, and I spent a little on some Nesties, gems, card and RIBBON....... NO >>>> I did not have enough!!!!!!!!

My card today is for a bessie friend who has just lost her Husband, a truly lovely Gentleman, who I had the pleasure and privilege to meet in August.

Blue cardstock
Agapanthus flower from unmounted stamp company
