Good morning, can you believe it's September and nearly time for me to return back to work - I am counting down those days! The Summer holidays have gone so quickly, much of it taken up with Mark's illness, but at least he is starting to recover well.

So it's time for a new monthly challenge at a Heck of a Challenge and the theme for the month of September is:


Here's my card:
