Summer's Coming.....and a RAK

I know this for two reasons..... tonight we barbecued our steaks for dinner.... outside on the barbecue - although it was a bit too cool to sit outside to eat. Plus we had new asparagus, new baby potatoes and an awesome fresh salad with avocado, feta cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

And that Darn Cat has been on the prowl again....this is the haul from last week....
Mostly knickers and swimming togs from one neighbour.  He only seems to do it in the summer time or when it is school holidays.  This week the kids are back at school, so nothing has come over....


The card I am going to share today is NOT made by me but by the amazing Tiffany Ervin.... she sent me this beauty together with a whole lot of other stuff in a RAK.... In amongst the goodies were some of the lovely flowers she used on her card.... so without further ado - feast your eyes on this ~

Isn't it just amazing.  Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness Tiffany.  I just love everything you sent me and will be able to use it all.....

I'm having some fun with distress inks and making some more bookmarks.... LOVE DISTRESS INK... there is just so much you can do with it...so that's all for tonight.

Enjoy your week.... for me the weekend is nearly here....a busy one starting with a family dinner out tomorrow to celebrate Hubby's birthday ( on Saturday) and finishing on Sunday with a 5km Fun Run.... Although it is 9.00am on Sunday I can imagine I'll be had it for the rest of the day!!!!

Ciao for now

Hi Dawn, I am also lucky enough to have received a card and goodies from Tif - isn't she sooooo kind! Glad to hear that Summer is on its way for you. We are well and truly in Autumn here in the UK. Today we have drizzle and a cooler wind. And what about that cat - how weird! Jo x

Gorgeous card from Tif and so fun that she sent RAKS too! Love getting packages in the mail! I had such a good laugh about your cat and the picture of what he dragged home! How perfectly funny that he feels he can go out and pick up whatever he wants from the neighbors. I have heard of pack rats but never pack cats!

I think I remember this card of Tif's and lucky you to have it for your own. I had to giggle when you said "summer's coming", as my husband said this morning "winter's coming"!

What a clean neat card Dawn, we don't seem to do these types of cards! So it is always a thrill when we get given one. Lucky, lucky you.

Wow! So summer is on its way to you! I must remember that we are in different seasons each time! Aww...thanks for sharing my card, too fun! Can't wait to see your bookmarks.

Enjoy the b-day celebration for DH this weekend!
