Summertime and the Living is Easy!

Good morning all.

Gary is safely in Iceland...when we dropped him off at the airport yesterday it was 24 degrees, I think it was forecast about 10 degrees in Iceland! I finally finished his birthday card yesterday morning but you'll have to wait to see it as I'm going to use it for a DT project!

Friday once more and I've got a trip to the optician's again this morning, then I think it'll be a trip round M&S for something nice to eat. Mark's birthday today...23, how did that happen! I haven't seen him yet as he stayed with a friend last night. For now I'm joining Erika with a golden oldie.

This was a card I made in 2011 when I was on the design team for Crafty Ann's....I thought it was appropriate given the glorious weather we've been enjoying this week. You can see the original post here. The majority of the image is coloured digitally.
