Cow Parsley seedhead and some photographs

Good morning everyone, I do hope all is well in your world...hugs

I had a wonderful day at Mercia Marina Sunday and the weather was very kind although fairly cold. I was there for their last Bandstand Busk of the season, and my daughter was singing so that was an added bonus. They have these sessions once a month during the summer and they are great. They put a bucket out for donation and were able to present a cheque for £400 to The Uttoxeter Lions for their Prostrate Cancer Screening programme.

On to my card for today. 

I took this photograph at Attenborough Nature Reserve a about month ago and yes, the sky really was that colourless at the time. If you look closely you can even see a few seed falling!
Matted onto a scrap of brown paper from the bits box.
Basecard is my usual white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to 7x5, then stamped with Penny Black Queen Anne's Lace which I thought morrored my photograph very well.
Sentiment stamped with Woodware.
Flatbacked pearls coloured with Copic marker pen.

Here's a photograph or three from Sunday Afternoon. The sun was very strong and from the wrong angle so these are the best I could do!

 A few of the musicians, including my daughter Susan ( in the middle), had a jam session at the end of the day. Here they are singing Mustang Sally.

Susan accompanied by John Beer playing the bones.

Super photos Jackie and well done to them on the fund raising.

And I just adore today's card, I love seeing the Keksies on the verges in spring, even if they do make it a pain to see round corners. I don't know if that is a universal name for Cow Parsley or unique to East Anglia.

Wonderful photos Jackie, glad you had a great day and so pleased lots of money was donated for such a good cause.
We requested donations for the prostate project uk, which is based at the Royal Surrey Guildford ( where my Dad was treated for his prostate cancer) at his funeral and raised just over £2000....
Your card is beautiful, fabulous photo!
