A beautiful Autumn day

I love the crisp, clear days we can get in Autumn where everything seems much brighter and more emphasised than normal. This is just like when making cards I tend towards a a nice clean look - not really into the over-fussy.

A couple more cards I have made recently:

The one on the right is my example using the following layout that I have submitted to Annemarie - www.stampinggalore.blogspot.com for my turn at providing the next challenge. So everyone, go to her blog and enter your card for the challenge. Not sure when she will be posting this but keep trying. Anyway, here's the layout to use:

Card challenge #1

I had a great Mother's Day treat at the weekend. Daughter, Nicky and her husband Paul plus our grandsons, Sam and Tyler, took Nev and I out to dinner at Pastis in Victoria Street West. An authentic French restaurant with snails and all!! Not that I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried them or the lambs brains! The guys (including little Tyler) did though but Nicky and I weren't brave enough. They also gave me the new Neil Diamond album and a DVD of Phantom of the Opera and Cats - two movies on one DVD.

Poor Kim felt left out down country and was home alone with the two boys as Murray was up in Auckland working so didn't see her for Mother's Day. Never mind, we talked on the phone and I am going down to stay a couple of nights at the beginning of next week.

Still waiting for news of my PET scan. Nothing happened at the meeting a couple of weeks ago due to the strike and some committee members being absent so it has now been scheduled for the 22nd May to decide whether to send me to Oz. Not sure what is going to happen re my next check up due on the 21st May - guess they will postpone this until I have had the PET scan. Anyway, what's a few more weeks of waiting - I've only been waiting seven months now!!


Thanks for popping in to catch up on what is happening in my life. I enjoy sharing my love of stamping and cardmaking and invite you to have a look at the projects I have made. You are welcome to take my ideas and use them in your own creations.
