Hi dear blogger friends.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I can't believe how fast these last 2 weeks went. My parents were here and we so loved their presence. Our kids just adored them. And it was so sad to see them go again. Dropping them off at the airport in Calgary, so they could fly back to the Netherlands and driving back in the car by myself wasn't an easy thing to do. I already miss them big time. I tell you, immigrating to Canada wasn't an easy choice and I am still not used to all the consequences that it brings. Missing my dear family is one of them.
Anyway.. I looked at the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #101 of this week. They encouraged us to use 'Not quite Navy', 'Marina Mist' and 'Bashful Blue' from Stampin Up in our cards. Instead of the Bashful Blue I used 'Pool Party' which is the new 2011/2013 In-color from Stampin Up. (#122924) I love LOVE this new color. For $8.75 + tax and shipping you can order 24 beautiful smooth card stock sheets of 8 -1/2 x 11 inches.
For the first time I used my Lace Ribbon Border Punch from Stampin Up (#122362 - $25.95). What a beauty! Don't you love how this card turned out? And it was so simple. I also added some bling with my pearls in 4 of the flowers and on some of the cupcakes. I love how it added that little extra.
Well. it is almost dinner time. Time to get dinner started. I wish I was one of those moms that had their meals all planned out for the week.. But surprise, surprise.. I need to dive in my fridge and see what I can match together. The creativity just goes on and on :)
Inky hugs, Pauline
