I have a page for AJJ where Chris from pearshapedcrafting has chosen the theme of
As I live not too far away from the sea means there is always fun to be had :)
And I admit it wasn't my finest hour when making this as the heat has made it hard to concentrate and use some products.
Used inks, inktense pencils and Brushos and some stickers which need using up.
Had 3 nights having to sleep downstairs in lounge as it was so hot it was impossible to sleep comfortably upstairs.
Friday night it was still reading 32c/91f. Saturday night - yipeeee - was about 26c/79f - still warm but it was lovely to sleep in a bed and not scrunched up on a 2 seater settee.

I have given up trying to stick things down with tape, especially with card making as the tape often lifts up.
I have been die-cutting mainly but having just got some new Altenew stamps I had to try them out and stamp quickly before the ink dried on my stamps :)
I have plenty of cards to assemble when the weather gets cooler.
I took photos of the layouts to remind me how to stick them down.
Dave somehow still managed to do some baking
and use some of the Nisperos/Loquat fruit before the birds ate it all.
|'It wasn't me - honestly - it was lying here already'|
Dave made some Apple and Loquat pies... it sure is a tasty combination!
when we had the fruit originally from a supermarket (many years ago) they called it 'Nisperos'
but it is also known as 'Loquat' - so I am never certain what name I should be calling it :)
|Help yourself to a slice.......|
OK that's all from me this time...
this was the first chance to blog this week as my PC
like myself doesn't do so well in hot weather :)
so until next time..
Happy Sunday and hope next week is cooler and good for you too.
