Summer days .... where have they gone!

Good morning all

Well I got back from my hollies yesterday and don't think I like it much - who stole summer while I was away! - its freezing and there's supposed to be gales and rain today - take me back to Florida lol.

I'm doing a catch up on DT cards as after 3 weeks away I have nothing in reserve.  This is an attempt to kill two birds with one stone!  I made it for the mid month post over at

Summer officially disappeared last Friday Judith and was it a culture shock or what. Like you I have been freezing ever since I came home as well.

At least your card is bright and cheery with a nice warm feel.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
