Nope, I didn't disappear off the face of the Earth!!!!

Although I managed to escape from the ratrace and regular routine for a few glorious and relaxing days with my BFF Jacqui!!!! The visit, for the most part was mellow and included a Stamping Day with My Western Ontario Stamping Friends, a road trip to check out neat shops and of course Scrapbook Stores and a Movie for the Kiddies!!!!!!

This picture was taken in one of the Gardens at Winter Wheat
It is a lovely Shop featuring Chainsaw Carvings, Garden and Home Decor. If you are ever near Sparta Ontario, a visit to Winter Wheat is time well spent. The Beautiful Gardens and groomed walking trails are peaceful and serene and definately a beautiful setting for some great Photo Ops!

It just happened to be Jacqui and Joe's 15th Anniversary on Wednesday. I made this simple one layer card using the Fun and Fast notes set from the New Stampin' Up! Fall and Winter Collection.

Using the outline of a Scalloped Oval Punch, I sponged Mellow Moss ink to the centre of the card to create a darker Background. I then stamped the main image in Black Stayzon ink and coloured with Aquapainters and Watercolour Wonder Crayons. The cake was "iced" with white gel pen as were the scalloped outline and flower centres. Double Stitched Ribbon in Blue Bayou dresses up the simple image. I think I must get this set soon!!!!!

I hope to be a little more diligent with posting, now that the lazy days of summer have come to an end. Stay posted to have a peek at some of the other cards I created at Jacqui's this week!!!!
