In The Garden

With the weather in the UK really nice ,many of us will be spending time in the garden. My Nan and Grandad had a lovely old fashioned deck chair like the one featured in my stamp "deck chair " by Little Claire. Little Claire stamps are made and sold in a place about  a mile away from our house but I bought this one from the craft shop in Llangollen. I also bought a Lavinia stamp , they are based in North Wales and are sold in an artist / craft shop in Llangollen where every thing is hand made .

 I've taken a picture to show you and the cute caravan outside. The lady that works there said the lady behind Lavinia stamps is also a very talented potter.

I've coloured with promarkers, the papers are first edition Spring drop and the charm was in a set of charms from a vintage craft mag.

Our day in  Llangollen was lovely the icing on the cake was a big black steam engine pulling into the Victorian station. The driver waved and later blew the whistle, it was so loud I screamed in fright , what a girl!

 my hubby Bob enjoying a pint of Ruddles County (real ale ) I joined him but only had a half, it was grand.

It's such a lovely image, one that really makes me long for summer. The summery feel of your card is enhanced by your choice of orange for the panels. And I really like that little tree charm!
