Just a quick one … because I am not keen to spend too much time on the computer … when I only have a week of holidays to enjoy! This is our first holiday in 12 months … and we have only just managed to get a week … BUT … we are VERY thankful for such a blessing! It is just what we needed … a week of doing nothing and just relaxing by the beach. Yes … it is the middle of winter … but … we are at the little beach side cottage at Dolphin Point that we have visited several times now … and it is so comfortable and warm and has wonderful views of the surf and entrance to Burrill Lake. The weather hasn’t been great … but WHO CARES!!! (It has cleared up this afternoon!) We are having a lovely time.
I am sharing a card today that I made for our niece’s 11th birthday this month! I had fun with this one! I am excited to see a new cupcake stamp set in the new SU! catalogue. I am keen to get that one … but resisting at the moment. :wink: I still have some of this gorgeous SU! DSP … can’t remember the name of it … and I as I am 2 hours from home … I can’t go and find it! I matched the colours of the cupcakes to those on the DSP and added some pretty bling for the frosting!
I also had to decorate the inside of the card … because the edge was cut away around the cupcakes. It is a fab look … and I must try this again. I also used markers to do a multi colour sentiment on the front & inside of the card — another fun idea for a pre-teen girl’s card! My inspiration was from Pinterest … with thanks to Cindy Hall.
Well … time for dinner. Gav has been so wonderful … giving me a week off from cooking & grocery shopping. He has been looking after it all! Now … that IS a real holiday! I haven’t had to even think about it! Yes … he IS keeper! I think after 31 years of marriage … I probably won’t trade him in now! :wink” The boys are here with us, although, Shane is only here for 3 days during a work shift break. Stace, Jono & the 2 kids and Sheree & Murray were able to come down for last weekend … so we have had most of the family here for some of the time. (Skye & Mitch had other commitments this week.) It was VERY quiet on Monday with just me, Gav & Sandy!
Hope you are all having a great day! See you when I get back from holidays!
