Peace Love and Joy



Peace Love and Joy

When I was out with my niece yesterday I saw this Mimi stamp ~ and it somehow leapt into the basket~ Such a cute one. The Hero Arts sentiment set also jumped into my basket ~ bad stamp! Didn't see it till too late~ but don't they combine well together.  Quite a match 
I stamped twice so I could add Mimi with dimensionals. Coloured with Copics and distress inks, Embossed the sentiment in silver.  Added some ribbon. The late afternoon sun is shining while taking my photos so not the best. 

Entering this into :
Wee Memories ~ Anything goes
Lily Pad Blog~ Nina B's sketch ( flipped the sketch)


We have been having fun this weekend with family here, but not too much crafting... I took Lisa (13) out yesterday to a couple of stamp shops and then she had a play

Made by Lisa...


Didn't she do well.  I got her three kits ~ with all the bits and pieces in them.. stickers, brads etc as well as the card stock and some matting papers.

In the afternoon we all went into the city via the Ferry, to visit the Waterfront which is all geared up as a Fanzone and Events Centre for watching the Rugby.  It was my first visit to "The Cloud" and the surrounding area.  Tonight is the BIG FINAL..  New Zealand versus France.   60,000 people at the game and thousands at the Fanzones around Auckland.  A BIG night ahead.  The games starts at 9.00pm NZ time - to accommodate the Northern Hemisphere times.  Luckily tomorrow is a holiday in NZ so we can have a sleep in.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciated each and every comment I get.

Cheers

Dawn

How perfect that the day after the final game is a holiday! Hope your team wins, Dawn!

Stamps do the same thing to me all the time. There seems to be some sort of magnetic pull from my basket! :) Love your adorable card - wonderful bright colors and your niece is becoming quite the little cardmaker!
