Friend with Chocolate

Friend with chocolate narrow

Hey's your weekend been?

It's been a big one here...including the movies last night - for the four of us...quite possibly the last movie we'll ever go to as a family:-(.....sad but true now our kids are big....we saw this of course...

It was amazing...full of action....sad and funny.....the end of an sad to say good bye to this wonderful story........but the movie, as great as it was, still didn't come close to the book - those books are BRILLIANT - so richly imaginative - the movie just cannot portray the same depth that the words convey. Goodbye Harry Potter! We'll miss you - but we'll keep our eye out for the DVD when it's released - to complete our collection:-)

So, a card to share also? You bet!

I've been playing with the absolutely gorgeous My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Market St paper pad - MME can do no wrong at the moment with their PP's....all-so-good!

Authentique Thanks close up

Hi's your day going? Hope it's GREAT:-))

Just popping in to share a few cards I've created for Shop and Crop with the beautiful new Authentique Blissful range.....sooooo pretty:-)

Authentique Joy is...

For my 3 cards I've used the Blissful 6x6 Bundle - full of delicious patterns, some loud, some soft so you have a wide range of options. With the papers I've included a few of the Tabloids - two sided cardstock elements - perfect for sentiments and scrapbook titles.

Authentique Thanks 
Add a quick sentiment from the stamps you have on hand and your card is complete:-)

Authentique My Thoughts...

Look at that beautiful damask aaaaaaaah......such a fun range to play with....papercrafting bliss:-)

Well time for me to make myself a cuppa and do a bit of blog hopping.

Thanks for your visit today....Cheers!
