Floral Bliss

On Monday I didn't get much stamping done but managed one before having to tidy up and head home.

I did another card with Floral Bliss from Simon Says Stamp. 

I masked off a panel in the middle of my card and did some stamping... selecting part of the stamp so as not to have the side leaves overstamping each other.  I used my Prismacolor pencils to colour.  I edged the mask area with a black sharpie and stamped the sentiment from a Lavinia Stamp set.

I had a really good weekend... a total of  10 cards made.   And this Saturday I'm meeting with my group of friends for a full day stamping.  

Sunday I am off to have High Tea at The Langham ( an Auckland hotel that does High Teas in their foyer area.  My friend is taking me and a few friends to celebrate my birthday which is next Wednesday.  It's my 60th and I'm freaking out a bit!   We have a lovely family dinner planned for the 17th - going to a posh restaurant in the city.  That I am looking forward to!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend

Not to worry--I'm way past 60--it's no big deal! Happy, happy BD, Dawn! Gorgeous stamp & love the soft coloring! Wish I could be in that group of stamping friends!

Think on the positive - it's only five years until you get to join the golden brigade - it's fun, and you get more discounts up there in the big smoke than we ever do! And remember, you are only as old as you feel!
Love this card Dawn - it's really pretty, and the verse is wonderful
