Evening all!!

Hope everyone is ok and not to HOT!!. Spent some time in the garden today cutting down some bushes and doing a general tidy up then went and played in my craftroom for the afternoon trying to cool down lol!!
Then we had a little BBQ and sweated over that while everyone watched me melt, I thought that was the blokes job!!??

Anyway cooling down a bit now and going to have a lovely walk to the beach in the morning, I only live 10min away, so hopefully it will be just as gorgeous tomorrow!!

To tonights creation, this great stamp from Sugar Nellie by the artist Elizabeth Bell is just so fabulous! It is going into the Truly Scrumptious challenge # 36 which is a great sketch with a theme "How does your garden grow!!"
