I had the most wonderful surprise on Valentine's Day, I've wanted a DSLR for the past year but could never have afforded to buy one for myself, when I got downstairs Valentine morning my husband had left me a card and gift, when I opened the parcel inside was a Canon EOS 550D, to say I was shocked was an understatement, I couldn't believe my eyes. We don't normally buy gifts for Valentine so I hadn't got him anything, how bad did I feel !!!! I did cook him a nice meal on the evening though of, fillet steak with pepper sauce.
I did manage to get one card made this week but first I would like to say a big thank you to the girls over at CR84FN for choosing my altered photo frame as one of their Terrific Top 3 last week, I was thrilled and very honoured. This weeks colour combo is just beautiful and a gorgeous inspiration board too, I always look forward to seeing the new board, the graphics are always so inspiring as are the wonderful, uplifting quotes. Here is the challenge board for the next two weeks over at CR84FN.
Don't these colours look gorgeous together, I love lavender from the colour, to the flower, to the fragrance but for some reason I haven't got a lot of lavender stash, I must find some pretty lavender papers and embellishments.
I've kept this card simple as I wanted to show off this gorgeous grey doily paper from MME Love Me paper range. I stamped the frame with SU Lucky Limeade,then stamped the quote in SU Basic Grey. I love to read inspiring quotes and always write down any I see in my little notebook. I would love to buy a book of quotes, would anybody be able to recommend one for me, please.
Stamps- Fancy Label 18, Sweet Valentine's, both Inspired by Stamping
Papers- My Minds Eye Love Me
Pretties- seam binding, roses
Yesterday my friend Kerry and I went to Worcester for the day, our first stop was Bubbly Funk craft shop where I bought a new Sizzix die and embossing folder, we then went to Worcester Catherdral to take some photo's with our new camera's, Kerry had her DSLR for Christmas. We paid £3 for a photo permit and started snapping away, I'm still learning what all the different setting do so my photo's weren't brilliant but practise makes perfect.
We then had lunch at Cafe Rouge, I had Ceasar salad but if you go there you have to have the french fries too, they are delicious !!!!!! After lunch we had a wonder around the city, I popped into House of Fraser to the wool department and found some Rowan wool at a bargain price so had to buy it. I will show you it on another post when I've decided what to do with it. Thanks Kerry for a great day !!!!
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend, everyone.
