Thinking of Summer

As Christmas draws ever closer and the evenings get darker earlier my thoughts have been turning to the lovely summer Poppy and I shared in the garden so I thought I would try Art Journaling.
The journaling is about Poppy and the huge pigeons that visited the garden each day and tormented her. They would arrive at 5pm and sit in the elderberry tree enjoying a feast and shaking their tail feathers as Poppy watched and occasionally barked at them. They took absolutely no notice of Poppy and stayed till their bellies were full. How they managed to fly after eating so many berries baffled me!
The stamp I used for the dog is one of my absolute favourite Stampotique stamps: Thinking of You! which can be found here. The other stamps I used are by Susan Weckesser. The tree is SO versatile I love it and the birds are so cute. Susan's stamps can be found here. The stamp sets I used are: A little bit washi, At ground level and Journal doodles with a heart. 
I do hope you like my postcard it's something a little different to what I usually do!
Wishing you a lovely day. Sam xxx
