Let the Celebrations start..............

My birthday is next week, but I've already started celebrating.  Saturday I got to spend the day with my stamping friends.... we meet at Lei's house... just 5 of us in total but boy did we have fun!

Sandie had got the Beautiful Day stamp set from Altenew and wanted me to teach her how to use them.  So I made a card to show her.... and then she was away!  She did a whole pile of card fronts with lots of different colours, using my Altenew inks I have.  Now she is looking to buy the inks as well.

Here's the card I made

I also got a few more cards made

Lots of flowers for the day.  All the flower stamps are from Altenew.  The middle one is with some dies from Couture Creations.    The sentiment on the far right is from Kaisercraft.   The leaves are stamped in grey ink and the flower is popped on some dimensional tape.

Sunday, my friend Yvonne organised to take me to High Tea at The Langham Hotel.  It was awesome

The food was AMAZING.... there was soooo much.  This was for two of us to share and then there was a plate of two scones each with clotted cream and jams.  I have to say that I brought home a box of some of the bits home for my son. 

This was an awesome start to my birthday week.  And Yvonne and Micheal gave me this beautiful Lily

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by
