Pearl Ex Lilies

Good evening.  I have just got home from a pleasant evening in London's West End, sharing a meal with 'the girls' from work.  I cannot believe it'll be four years since I stopped working full time in London.  We dined in Kettner's just off Shaftesbury Avenue and afterwards I walked with a friend all the way through Trafalgar Square to Parliament, where our lift home was waiting.  My boots were not the most comfortable I possess and my feet are a little weary now.  We saw the new 'boy on rocking horse' on the spare plinth in Trafalgar Square, which was unveiled this week and also the Olympic countdown clock. (See photo below) I do enjoy being in London in the evening.  It's the buzz I guess.  Restaurant was lovely but pricey.
This card uses the Butterfly Kisses stamp obtainable from Hobby Art.  I used Pearl Ex paints to colour a background before adding extra colour to the petals.  Cut out with a Nestie and Cuttlebug folders and a punch complete the card.
Tomorrow I am going to the big papercraft show in Farnborough with Linda and Blanche.  Really looking forward to it.  Then in the evening, we are going to a Bollywood Bingo night in the Woldingham village hall.  We know how to live!


  1. Thanx for the lovely comment you left on my blog. Sounds like you had a wonderful evening out & nice photo of the new sculpture. I grew up in London & get all misty eyed when I see pics of it. lol.

  3. Hi Gill
    What a beautiful card! Your colouring is perfect!
    Looks like you had a fab time in London! Hope you enjoyed the Make It show, we went on Sunday and had a great day out!
    So glad to see you offering the lovely Kim support too.
    Take care

  4. Thank you Debs. I had a great day at the show but am now very upset about this controversy with Kim. She does not deserve it and indeed my latest post shows my own views on the subject. Thanks for your lovely comment.
