I'm back from my trip to Western Australia and have been busy catching up with work and chores that seem to multiply inexplicably when you are away. I had a lovely time helping my Mum celebrate her 80th birthday and catching up with family I haven't seen for many years. It was wonderful that she was finally well enough to enjoy both the family dinner and open house that we put on for her.
I also decided it was time to give my blog a bit of an update, which has consumed more (precious creative) time than I would wish. Aren't the hyacinths in the banner gorgeous - I can almost smell the perfume. I took this photo at the Floriade festival in Canberra a few years ago. Although we have now moved into Autumn, I couldn't resist the gorgeous burst of colour.
Today I have a couple of quick thank you cards to show you, both made with the versatile 'Bella Toile' stamp set. I don't think there is a colour that doesn't look wonderful with this gorgeous background.
