Colour Me #63, lunch & shopping with friends....and a BIG Thank You!


Wishing you a wonderful Sunday...we have RAIN here! So exciting, we need it so bad. I have one card to share today for Colour Me #63. the colors are so pretty and thought of butterflies when I saw them. I decided to make a thank you card to thank all of you that took the time to wish me a happy birthday....I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!


I have another new follower that I want to welcome to my blog....Mackie from MackieMade Paper Creations. What a talented lady she is, so be sure to head over to her blog and check out her wonderful creations. There is the sweetest little bunny card there, it will make you smile! 

Today I spent the day with Darnell and Harriet...we headed down to San Jose for lunch at Maggiano's and a bit of shopping at Paper Source and Scrapbook Island. What a fabulous and fun day we had...so much chatting and even more laughing! We found a wonderful store in Los Gatos, so many amazing card making goodies and a huge work shop area, cant wait to go back! I even have a few photos to share too, but you knew I would. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!

  18. I'm so happy that you liked my card! Bev hosted a lovely party! My Baba always would say "a lovely lunch was served and a good time was had by all".

    Sweet pic of you and the girls! You guys are sooooooo lucky to live close by! Apparently we are in for a whole whack of snow tonight....so I'd welcome rain as well!

    Stunning color combo - soft, serene, subtle....just like your card card. Gorgeous butterflies, the pearls are the perfect embellie! The grey swoosh is the perfect bit of pizazz!

    Have a happy, crafty day dear friend :)

    Your design is elegant with the butterflies and sequins and I like the effect of the brush of ink.
