I've had a wonderful 5 days visiting Canberra, I had to go down for a three day training course and extended the trip slightly to allow me to catch up with some friends. I LOVE Canberra, the change in seasons, rugging up in winter woolies, the activities that are on and of course the wonderful friends I've made there. Still, North Queensland does have its attractions too. Maybe I can work a split....winter in NQ and summer in ACT....hmmm now that IS a thought! LOL yes I do dream a lot.
Anyway while I was in town the very first person I caught up with was Monique, I signed Mon up as a SU Demo about a month before I left town! At least she knew I was going to be 3000 klms away when she signed on. Mon's Mojo has been missing a bit lately but go check out what this talented girl has done building storage for her craft space! Amazing stuff.
Saturday morning was a visit to Bron, we were lucky enough to be provided with a special limited edition Brayering class which was just sensational and THANKS Bron, I think I need to practice a bit more before I publish any efforts in that area. Bron was working with glossy card stock, that inspired me to drag some out for this card.
Saturday arvo was spent visiting one of my special customers, Penny to give her a big shot lesson, so waiting for her to now have time to create and post to her blog.
I got out the re inkers and rubbing alcohol and made the background paper using the Colour Throwdown colours Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette. Then I stamped the flower cluster from Elements of Style in stazon black ink and cut it out with the scallop square bigz die.
The sentiment comes from Occasional Quotes Hostess set, add a ribbon and a few pearls and you're done.
