Hmmm.... a mild case of "better late than never" - the delay of posting this swap from Jayne is due to the accident, but she knows that I have received it. Fran called a "Hello, Summer" theme, and here is Jaynes's interpretation.
This vintage card screams summer, and my mind wanders to Victorian era, or perhaps the garden of Jane Austen :o) At the time that I received this card, I was actually re-reading a few of Jane Austens novels... so my mind started playing with names: Jane.... Jayne....
Jayne sent me some goodies along with the tea, and the stamp really created a smile. I always have a hard time creating a card for my dad (male cards are hard to make, as less ideas about themes etc), but since he has always had a passion for his garden, this is perfect. Ever since my parents got married he has always had a little piece of land (even while living in an appartmen in our capital city) so he could grow flowers to bring to my mum - maybe that is actually his secret behind their 51+ years of marriage.
Thanks for the swap, Jayne, and the creative inspiration it brought me :o)
