Fifth Avenue Floral

Well here I am - back stamping flowers again. I can't help myself! Even though I have other things to do, I just wanted to make a card before I started ironing and packing for Convention.

This card is almost a CASE to the example box using the Fifth Floral Avenue set in our SU catalogue. The box there just had a clear front window so I just substituted some of the yummy Urban Oasis DSP. That pack of paper is absolutely beautiful.

The flowers have been stamped on to Whisper White card and I watercoloured them. Inside the Build a Brad, I have used a punched out circle of the Baja Breeze DSP.

I will not be posting again now until next week. The SU Convention will be so much fun and it will be great to meet up with everyone again! My card swaps are packed - I eventually did get quite a few finished even if it did mean sitting in front of TV packing them into their cello bags at night.

The weather is so beautiful here and we will be going headlong into the freezing cold in Canberra. I will be glad to come home and thaw out again! It is 20C right now and will probably get to about 28 or 29C later in the day here. April and May are usually the very nicest of months weather wise here. I love them.
