I think I'm back + a scarlet ibis

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well and not suffering withdrawal symptoms now that the Olympics and Paralympics are done. I was miffed when I had to go to work halfway through the parade yesterday!
I will be trying to catch up with your blog posts now but it may take a day or two, please bear with me.
I had a wonderful day at the  Wirksworth Festival on Sunday but my poor legs are suffering from the hills there.If you have ever been to Wirksworth you will know what I mean, it is very steep there! Had to go though as my daughter, along with our folk club, was singing there. I am awaiting her permission to put a photograph of her on here!
I still haven't managed to make a card (hopefully today) so here is one I made earlier but didn't upload it.

Another very simple card. I cut and folded plain white card to 6x6.
I took the photograph at Blackbrook Zoo, near Leek, a couple of years or more ago. Feathered it in PSP and printed it straight onto a soft peach Bazzill, then used more Bazzill for the mat and the corner die. Die cuts are Memory Box and Nesties, and I coloured the pearls with copics and there you go, I told you it was simple :o)
Jackie xx

Think we've just completed a fabulous summer of sport with Andy's win. Trouble is as you say, will get withdrawal symptoms.

Lovely warm colours on your card Jackie.
