Convention kicking off in just under 5 hours & an AB FAB card to share

Today is the day that the annual Stampin' Up! convention kicks off in supposedly sunny Brisbane - but awoken to a very grey & gloomy day here - I think it's raining in Auckland so won't complain too loudly!

The view of the park across the road from our apartment
Donna & myself arrived yesterday & somehow a walk for breakfast supplies ended up being a shopping spree - we found a very cool shop called Charmed beside the Coles supermarket - many hours later we trudged up the road very tired but very happy wee campers, with bags of food, clothes & shoes.

Looking in at some of my purchases
On the plane Donna finally gave me my birthday card as somehow or other we hadn't caught up in the last month or so & I'd seen a scan of it but didn't realise how beautiful it was in the flesh or how BIG the card was it's 6 x 6" when finished, but it truly was worth the wait!

She's coloured in the Vanilla Flower trim flowers (126869) with Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake & Old Olive ink & popped them all up on another All Dressed Up frame.

Very sad as it looks like the flower trim we have in our current Seasonal Mini didn't make the cut to the new annual catalogue - so we have until June 30th to order it ($14.50 for a roll of approx. 100 flowers).

Better go get ready for my exciting day ahead & take some more photos to share.
