Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs

I am loving these cool Autumn temperatures, I feel more alive :o)

My car was very poorly at the weekend, or at least I thought so. Daren't go anywhere on Sunday, daren't start the engine to move it away from the fence so I could open the door to get at the bonnet opening thingy to see why it was spitting oil, copious amounts of it, through the radiator grille,  couldn't reach it from driver's side of the car. Called my "goto for everything car related" Rob Monday morning and ten minutes later he had the bonnet open to find............... My oil filler cap had come off!!!!! Thank goodness it was nothing worse than that, big sigh of relief. I visualise depleting my savings considerably!
At least not being able to go anywhere Sunday meant that my huge buddliea bush had a good pruning, got to finish it off now the brown bin has been emptied!

Have you fallen asleep yet? I had better get my card uploaded :o)

As you can see, a perfect day for reflections.
This is one of my recent photographs taken at Mercia Marina, and I think it would be suitable for male or female.
Basecard is my usual white linencrad from The Range, folded and cut to 7x5.
I printed my photograph onto the same linencard and layered it onto navy blue linencard from stash.
Sentiment stamped with My Creative Time stamp.
Not a lot else I can say except that I didn't want embellies taking the eye away from the photograph :o)

What a beautifully tranquil scene Jackie, would indeed work for both sexes.

Your car expertise sounds much like my own, but pleased it was something simple.

I'm with you on the temperatures hun, although I'm not feeling particularly alive this morning after a roasting on the bus! Glad it was nothing serious with your car, but what a naughty thing to scare you like that. Loving your photo card, the picture is so calming and beautifully framed. Brilliant, as always, hun. Hugs xx
