Summer lovin'....

Hello all - I hope that you've had a good week?  Just the usual sort of one here, aka busy! My son is still slogging on with the exam season - and definitely looking forward to finishing them! And after my moaning about the weather in my last blog post, it did improve a bit.  However, the wind seems to have arrived back again - so it was out again this morning to prop up windswept plants in the garden. And it was fascinating watching the birds performing aerial acrobatics against the wind so that they could land on the bird feeders! Sigh. I'm just hoping it eases again soon.

But I've kept busy with the crafts as always - despite there never seeming to be enough hours in the day!  And the card I've got to share today features one of my favourite cute couples from LOTV - and I always think it's a lovely, summery image (despite what may be going on outside!)

I've coloured the image with copics and a touch of pencil. 

The papers are from LOTV, with flowers from WOC and die cut leaves from a Poppystamps die. 
The sentiment is also from LOTV - that little set of sentiment stamps is sooooo useful!  Then I've added some stitching and a little brass key charm from stash.

And the inside finished to match.
Hope you like it. I've added it to my Etsy store.
And I hope you enjoy your weekend - whatever you may have planned.  I've nearly finished my blanket made with the little crochet daisy squares.  I just need to steam and block it a little bit - and then I'll share a 'Ta-Dah' moment!  I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out - and so now busy planning the next hooky project! 
Thank you for taking the time to read my rather rambling blog posts - and for your lovely comments.
Back soon,
