My daughter and I spent today hiding from the 36 degree celcius heat in Canberra (which is nothing compared to the 40+ some other Ozzie capitals scored today).
First we went and chilled out in front of Madagascar II at the cinema, then we did a little shopping and had lunch at Tuggeranong. It was a nice way to spend some mother/daughter time.
This afternoon we did some craft together under the cooler, while watching the tennis (thank goodness they closed the roof of the Rod Laver Arena...those poor players would have DIED in the heat....Melbourne being one of those 40+ capitals I mentioned above!).
This is the card I made today:
Ingredients (from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Cardstock: Textured and plain Basic Black, Whisper White
Paper: Papertrey Ink Black & White Basics
Ink: Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet, Papertrey Ink True Black
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Garden of Life
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet Luxe Satin Ribbon, miscellaneous large black brads, crystal effects, SNAIL, dimensionals.
I have painted the crystal effects onto the flower, stem and leaf with a small paintbrush. I love the effect that this gives.
Gotta run....it is dinner time!
