Last weekend was perfect...sunshine, family, gifts, food, flowers and cake. I cannot think of a better way of spending my birthday and I was spoilt rotten.
Yes my dear Hb bought me a Samsung Tablet so now I can almost live in my studio ;0) I have had smart phone for some time and really like it but the tablet takes it all to another level.
and how "me" is the Orla Kiely storage jar.
I had lots of lovely flowers too and lunch was celebrated at the same hotel we went to last year. It was so lovely to be surrounded by my family and we toasted our health with some bubbly too.
The sun shone from dawn to dusk and it was so warm that when we got home we were able to sit out in the garden and enjoy my yummy lemon birthday cake.
What an extra bonus it was to have such beautiful weather. Thank you all for the birthday wishes you sent me, I really loved them all.
Although the weather has changed here from less spring like we have still escaped the cold blast that my Scottish friends have had...they are under a blanket of snow again!
To keep up with some sunny thoughts my card today is another Spring time/ Easter card.
I inked up my sweet Lili of the Valley "gift wrapped" stamp again and this time went for a pink and brown colour scheme.
I coloured my stamped imaged with my trusty Promarkers and highlighted the image with my Prismacolor pencils.
I added some glamour dust glitter to the butterfly wings to give then a lovely sparkle.
and I finished off with some lovely mulberry paper roses, 2 heart brads and a round Easter sentiment.
