........ doesn't make a summer, I know, but yesterday from a back window in the small hotel where I work I heard and then saw the Swallows were back. Their excited twittering reminds me long summer evening will soon be here.
These Swallows have nested in the semi-derelict building next door to the hotel for some years but since last summer it has been renovated and they have lost their nest site - but there are plenty of other suitable places nearby. The miracle of migration never fails to amaze and delight me.
I don't have any swallow stamps but this is a favourite image from one of my copyright free books. Just had time to make a quick card with it this morning to mark the occasion. I don't think this little girl needs any embellishment so I just added a sentiment and some copic colouring.
I've very little time at home at the moment as my Mum is not at all well and I'm at her house until 10.30 pm every night. So I don't have much time to myself and hardly any for visiting my favourite crafters' blogs to comment. I hope one day soon things will get back to normal but in the meantime I send you all my apologies for being so quiet - I haven't forgotten you.
