Good Morning!
We have weather that's just right for me at the moment in the UK!  Lots of sun during the day and rain at night, means we can be out and about during the day and no garden to water..
Had a  lovely day in the Village yesterday watching one of our Grandsons playing the euphonium.

Now this CAS card is a little different for me!  I've a drawer full of stamps and thought I start to use them..This is a Kanban stamp embossed with WOW Sparkling embossing Glitter..Using a torn paper embossed with a variety of Distress Inks for the background...Woodware leave punch. Computer sentiment..Not a fun image insight lol..
