Quick Post and a Shopping/Lunch Date!!


I only have a few minutes to post this morning as I have a LOT to do!!! Today is my only day off this weekend and we are driving down to celebrate my Mom's birthday this afternoon. So I have some things I need to get done this morning!

Here is a card that I wasn't sure if I actually wanted to share with you because I'm not real happy with it. I attempted watercolouring again (not quite successfully) and the layout doesn't feel quite right, but I'd spent too much time fiddling with it before I finally gave up. The dp is Afternoon Tea by SU and I added some glitter brads and wide chocolate satin ribbon. The sentiment is from Will 'n Way and of course I added Stardust Stickles on her wings and the butterflies.

I also thought I would let you know that I am planning a trip to Petrolia on Friday, June 6th to have lunch at Actor's and do a little shopping at The Town Scrapper!! If you have that day available and would like to join me, just send me a quick email so we can reserve enough seats at our table. Lunch will be at noon. It's always a great time, chatting with ladies who have the same obsession....I mean passion, as I do!! heehee!! Good food, good friends and good shoppin'!!! Hope you can make it!

Looks just great to me, Kimmie! But I do know how you feel when something just isn't right with a card or a page...we are always our own worst critic. I haven't water coloured in long while. I might have to give it a go again...thanks for the nug/inspiration! Have a great day celebrating you mom's b-day! Tara

Looks great to me too. Kimmie you are being to hard on yourself. I love the way the DP is layed out. Really different with the corner blue one. And you watercoloring is great!

If I left today, Sunday, maybe I could make to your lunch on Friday! =) Man I wish I was closer! I will think of you at lunch time on friday...

You definitely are to hard on yourself! Looks great! I bet it took practice to get your Copic's looking so good, now you just have to keep practicing with the water color till you are happy with the result. Great colors and sweet image!

I wish I lived near you Kimmie. I have bought from Town Scapper on line and would love to visit it. It would also be an honor to visit with you but unfortunately since I live in New Brunswick, I can`t make it. Have loads of fun.
