Summer is over ....... (sigh!)

Happy Wednesday,

And welcome to Autumn .......

Yes, summer is finally over ....... we had a lovely weekend though, busy but nice. 
The birthday party was a huge success ...... even the grown ups enjoyed themselves!!  The Isle of Man Food Festival was as good as ever ..... the Christmas pudding and yummy fruitcake have been bought (along with a load of other stuff!!) And ...... we got to spend time with family and friends ....... there was a barbecue, Sunday lunch out, and .... another birthday tea!  But, that's it for a while now.... things should calm down a little, to let me get ready for Christmas (ooops!  there goes the C word again!!)
Anyway .... there's definitely a chill in the air and the leaves are already starting to fall ...... Autumn is definitely here!

Time for a challenge I think ........  
It's Theme Week  over at Less is More and the theme is .........


Hmmm ...... this one got me thinking.  Technology ..... not exactly one of my favourite subjects.  The laptop I can manage, sort of ..... with help from my onsite Tech Support - hubby that is!!  Mind you he's not much use when it comes to my blog .... that I know about!  
My mobile phone I can use ... just about!  The camera still gets the better of me at times .... and .... the little man is better with the ipad than I am.  Even our TV needs a flippin' instruction manual!

Anyhow ..... I searched through my stamps looking for inspiration and found nothing!!  Then I remembered ...... I had the perfect words, just needed something, or someone, to go with them .....

I think Facebook counts as Technology don't you!

I still love these little guys ...... they always look sooo cute!! 

I've given this one a pretty bunch of flowers from the Crazy Things stamp set .... coloured using the Distress Markers .... 

That gorgeous purple colour is the brand new Wilted Violet colour of the month ...... arrived in the old craft room this morning .... can't wait to have a proper play with that one!

As always there's a little something on the inside too ....

Well that's it from me this evening ...... a nice G&T awaits .... well it is Wednesday!!! Hubby's already playing the country music and hits from the 70's and 80's .... it could be a long night!
But before I go I'd like to say a BIG Hello and welcome to my latest follower ..... it's lovely to have you aboard.  I hope you enjoy visits here.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your evening.

Cheerio until next time

  13. Perfect for our challenge and I love the bird with the flowers, Linda. A great sentiment too, I think things have started to get so impersonal these days, it's always better to receive a card.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  15. Did you create this sentiment on the computer or find it somewhere? If you did it on the computer, what font? Wonderful card!

    1. Hi ...... thank you for your lovely comment.
      The sentiment is actually from an old IndigoBlu stamp set, here;s the link .....
      Hope this helps xx
