Humming bird card

Good morning friends, it's a VERY wet August Bank
Holiday here change there then ! I Think it
 will rain all day too. I do hope it's better where
 you are today.
 An ideal day to stay warm and dry in the craft room
and just make cards then ;) Maybe Summer has gone
now, I spy Autumn approaching rapidly.Anyway 
 I have another  'Less is More' card to share
 with you again. The theme is Sprays/Mists this time.
I sprayed the card with TH spray stain and also the
images with water.

Have a good day everyone whatever you are up to.
Come and have a closer peek at my card ;)

ps. Our pirate day was good yesterday btw. 
(Still recovering today!!)The  grandchilden all arrived
 wearing stripey clothing. Some of the adults also
 and I wore a stripey top  too ;) 
One of the grandsons hadn't had much sleep
so wasn't on best form at times but I think the
 treasure hunt and tents were a hit. Walking the
 plank & firing cannonballs went down well.
They loved searching for all the clues.....I
will definately be doing it again ! The tunnels
were the most enjoyed thing by Charlie and Alex
loved sitting in all the tents......even the pink one ;)

 The gold treasure chest ( filled  with  cheap baubles
 and 'doublooms' was much used most of the day.
I forgot Just no time to take many photo's alas,
wish I had taken one of Lana in her pink tutu, tiara
 and sparkly little handbag!! 
Anyway I did take the  odd photo, so see them below
 my card if you want  a nosey. It does look crowded
with all the tents, but it is a very long sunlounge,
 my 50mm lens didn't help I fear!

The last one with our little 'pirates'.......Charlie had
already changed out of his stripes (twice) due to getting
wet sleeves. Anyway they all spied granddad's yummy
home grown plums in the kitchen and climbed up 
and sat together to enjoy them.So I quickly grabbed my 
camera ;)
