A Busy Weekend

I have had a very busy weekend with family and stamping. Saturday saw me washing and cleaning... my usual Saturday ritual. Working full time means that I don't have much of a chance to do these chores during the week. On Saturday night we went to watch the Riverfire display in at Southbank. (For those people not in Brisbane... Riverfire is a big fireworks display.) This year over 400 000 people were there to see it! My DH works in the city and we were able to go into his office to watch it away from the crowds. It was very exciting and the kids loved it! Between washing loads I was able to make this card!

I am not sure I like it... a bit too busy for me but it was the first time I have used this set... so I was more playing than really having a purpose in mind. I used Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou.

On Sunday, a friend came over and we made some Father's Day cards for her DH and Dad and a birthday card for her daughter who is turning 9 soon. Now sadly, I didn't take any photos of her creations but she was very pleased with what she made and how fast she made them. I then cleaned up my desk as I couldn't see the top of the desk at all. That seemed to take the whole day! LOL

So that is all to tell. I am working on a couple of projects that I will post pictures of when they are done. I hope you all have a great week!

Cheers,
Chrissie
