Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree ~ Part 2 Summer ~ Inspired by the Orwell River


Good morning all,
On Sunday we took Little Hippy to Pin Mill which lies on the River Orwell in Ipswich. The weather was beautiful and I was struck by the shades of blue and greens that met the eye.

Pin Mill was once a haven for smugglers and there is still a public house which lies on the banks of the Orwell called the Butt and Oyster. It is named this to commemorate the oyster fisheries which were a major exporter from the area. When the tide comes in the water comes right up to the pub wall which is amazing. In the old days the pub would be full of sailors and bargemen enjoying a pint.

Today's project is a follow-on from yesterday's post using the Sheltering Tree stamp set. I have used shades of bright blue (Bermuda Bay) and green (Old Olive) to give a summery feel and I was most definitely inspired by our walk on Sunday:

Little Hippy certainly had fun and enjoyed some refreshment in the Butt and Oyster.
