A visit and a framed butterfly present

It was so nice to get a visit from a blog and Flickr (Hero Arts Gallery) friend today, her name is Betty Keefe and she is from the United States, visiting her son and his family in England and on holiday on the coast around an hours drive from where I live. We had a lovely time together and had to seek refuge in the garden under a tree because of the hot, muggy weather. It seems that temps are tropical everywhere at the moment.

You see that hammock in the background, I love to lie in there in the cool evenings watching the airplanes go by and just relaxing from the hot days after dinner.

Now I'm sharing a picture I made for my son and his fiancĂ© as they are busy decorating their apartment. I  thought I would choose light colors to match the colors of their home.

 I hope it inspires you to give this a go too - it is such nice work to do. 

This is another framed inchie project which has a Terra Cotta frame. Half of the size of the ones I usually do, so quicker and just as enjoyable, using patterned papers and some stamping.

I hope you are enjoying your summer and I must say to all those who have air-conditioning - enjoy it because it's hard without it!!

  12. Beautiful creations Jaqueline, I am curious do you live in England? Only I saw that you met someone visiting her son and wondered if you had moved, I always thought you lived in France. If it is England maybe we are near each other!
