Good Morning! I've had a busy few weeks recently and not alot of time in my stamp room.  My DH had last week off and this week is my DD's spring break so needless to say my focus has been elsewhere :)  I really need to find my stamping MoJo, its just not there lately. I think I create best when I have a little more "quiet time".  :)

This card was made with the Cottage Wall dsp, I really love the colour combo in this dsp. But, I can hear you now, "what dsp don't you like Deb?" :) 

The base is Razzleberry, and I've used Whisper White and Orchid Opulence to mat the main image.  The stamp sets used are both retired, Branch Out & Love Ya Bunches.  Accessories are: Razzleberry Polka Dot grosgrain (can you believe I only have about 6 inches left of this beautiful ribbon?!), Razzleberry coloured buttons from my stash, Old Olive Wide Striped Grosgrain and Flower Soft. My Wonderful Friend Melody and I found some of this last year at a craft show and couldn't believe how well it matched the Cottage Wall Dsp.  Its just gorgeous!!

Today we are meeting my dear Aunt for lunch in the city.  She's in her 70's now and actually keeps busier than I do! She's most impressive with her Book Club meetings, exercise class, (she's even done Hula dancing!!), and regular coffee with the "girls" on Mondays at the cafe near her condo. She still drives herself everywhere and regulary goes out to see her sister (who's 10 years older) every Sunday, a 1/2 hour drive from her home. My Aunt is the Queen of "no left turns" and I've learned well from her!! If there's a route that doesn't involve a left turn onto a busy street (without traffic control lights)  well she knows it. I'm the same, I just stress sitting there waiting to turn out onto a busy street (like 149th Street, for anyone from Edmonton).  So, we are off to the city for lunch, and will hopefully avoid all left turns that don't have traffic control! :)

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful Thursday!!
Deb
