Not for the 4th of July!.......

Evening everyone form sunny Ilfracombe! (well not now, of course, 'cos it's dark :))....We've had a lovely day,  sun shone almost all day, but it definitely wasn't as warm as you'd expect in June!   We walked miles along 2 different beaches, Finn absolutely loves the water. The ice-cream at the end of the walk was very was the glass of wine when we got home .......!
Anyway just a short post tonight, as it's a bit late......A young girl came up to me last week at a craft fair, and asked for an easel card for her 'mom'......It turned out that 'mom' is one of my regular customers, so the daughter wanted a birthday card for her. She asked for carnations, the American flag, and 'mom'. 
This is what I came up with, and she loved it, thankfully.
The family used to live in the USA and want to move back there, hope they don't though, as I'd lose a great customer!

Anyway, that's all for tonight, hope you've enjoyed looking, if so, please leave a comment.
Catch you all tomorrow x
