Indian Summer

Gosh its been a few weeks since I last posted, where did that go.
I've been trying to catch up for a few days and got a bit confused where I'm up to as my 'blogrolls' on two of my blogs have disappeared. But it appears (I think) not my fault but a problem which will be rectified soon ??
So... trying to get back to normal at last...'s a mainly digital piece for  AJJ new fabulous theme 'Indian Summer'  hosted by the lovely Valerie.

Digi kits used 'Autumn returns' and ' A scrap of art' both by Lynne Anzelc.
And the face one from one of my paintings  (the one that I added the stamped birds too)

I think the heat-wave we had here in parts of the UK for a good 10 days, from the second week of September, counts as an Indian Summer. The two conservatories (which came with our house) act like green houses when its hot - but it gets too hot for me and it gives me headaches, make it hard to sleep and feel right out of sorts.
So I am glad it has cooled down a bit now.

We had some unusual skies in September too... 

and the birds were hot and liked to cool down
Thanks for stopping by today
and any comments are very much appreciated.
