Tulips .....


Bula Blogger's,

I'm having a hard time settling back after our trip to Fiji..... can you tell?   It hasn't helped that the weather is quite cold here at the moment but I shouldn't complain.... it's dry!!!

I didn't take lots of pictures this trip though the beautiful sunsets were hard to resist......I snapped off a couple of reasonable shots so will share.


This second one was taken from the balcony off our room.


Walshie and I spent a bit of time on those sunbeds moving around the palms for some shade!  Oh I want to go back............

OK enough.........I wanted to share a little card today. I made this one some time ago and  it's sitting on a shelf in my room so I can admire it.......I love the colours and these tulips remind me of Spring.

This is another set from AnnaBelle Stamps Mother's Day Bouquet.  I paper pieced the vase with some ABS digital paper . The tulips are coloured with Prisma's and OMS.  I've framed them with a second ABS set  called  'All Squared'.The cream card is a linen effect and I've sponged the edges to soften it layered over  SU Peach Parfait. A strip of the same card breaks up the lovely textured brown card (also AnnaBelle) with  just  3 Pumpkin Sprinkles to complete the card.


Well it's been fun coming in for a chat........I'm way behind visits to every one's blogs but hang in there.....I'll get caught up and back into the swing of things soon.........I hope!

Thanks for dropping by and I see I have some new followers......G'Day!!! (Oh that doesn't sound like me at all ....!!) I hope you'll find a few things here you'll enjoy.  Keep an eye on the Tutorials button at the top of my page I'll try and add a few links for interesting finds like the Wedding Shoe Favor (got it right this time!) box.......that way they're all together and easy to find.

Hope you'll call back tomorrow for AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge....we have some news to share ....oh and don't forget the SALE!!!!! So many bargains over at AnnaBelle at the moment..........

Till tomorrow...........

Thanks for sharing the pics of Fiji...beautiful sunset! Great card too. Nice and warm here but having a bit of rain...better than the cold there.
