Stuff and a Card

It's my husband's birthday today and we've been celebrating all day. We spent the day downtown, shopping and revisiting all the places we've missed since we moved out of our condo. Then we had lunch at La Bettola, an Italian restaurant. It was delicious! When we got home, I went to pick up his cake and tonight we'll eat in. Tomorrow, we're heading to my parents' house for a monstrous meal my mom is going to whip up for him (us). ;) We had taken the day off yesterday to visit the Royal Ontario Museum so I'm exhausted. Between the two days, I've probably walked enough for the entire week. LOL I'm sitting down for a few minutes just to say hi before starting on dinner.


I know my blog's been very quiet but next week will be super busy with a big release from Lil' Inker Designs and more! This is a wedding card that a friend ordered a while back. Surprisingly, I just had another friend order something very similar so I'll be making a variation of this since the black needs to be changed to chocolate. I will probably change the flourish to leaves and add a few more shades of green.


In case you're interested, I am selling a bunch of stamps. Just click on the For Sale tab to have a look. I am constantly updating the list so send me an email if you're interested in anything. Thank you!

So pretty! I realized yesterday that I only have one wedding card. That won't do...I'm going to have to borrow some inspiration :) Love the colours - somehow blue is my go-to for weddings.
