Summer...where did it go?

Where has the summer gone? I can't believe that the weeks have passed so quickly! Why is it that we spend ages waiting for summer to arrive and then it's gone in the blink of an eye? I for one haven't seen the time go by! And we'll be into September soon and then before we know it it'll be Christmas (I should really get started on my cards). So I'm hanging onto summer for just a while longer with my card for today, which is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...

The challenge is to use stitching on your card, mine is faux as I didn't have the courage to get the sewing machine out. I've gone with a fun, summery PB image coloured with Pro Markers and fresh papers (Daisy & Dandelion Picnic Patch). The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly.

Tomorrow I go back to work, I'm dreading it! All the holidays have just evaporated, I'm on such a downer! On top of that I'm having a few worries at home. Do I feel a little (very little) spend coming on to cheer myself up?

I hope you're all having a better week than me, thanks for dropping by, sorry to have droaned on a bit!
