I missed out on the SU Convention in Brisbane but was really happy to finally meet these two gorgeous stamping friends. Hubby wanted to go to the Australian National Sound and Film Archives Museum and so I arranged to meet up with Debbie and Patrice at the cafe for some coffee and cake. Even though we had never 'met', all three of us had plenty of laughs and lots to talk about.
I've been following Deb's blog ever since I saw her share some of her gorgeous 'Russian Doll' punch art made from the owl punch and now she does lots of whizz bang stuff with MDS, so of course we had plenty of stuff to talk about! Patrice, of course, is my long time friend from Just Add Ink days and it was SO good to finally catch up. I feel truly blessed to have met these gorgeous girls through our connection with Stampin' Up!®.
Ryan's Graduation from the Lachlan Macquarie Intern-ship Program was the main reason why we spent an awesome four days in Canberra. He flies home today. Yay! ... one excited mum.

Even 'Blues' the dog tried to get in on the photo shoot.
On the Saturday night, Hubby and I did a little bit of sight seeing. The weather was amazing for late 'autumn' so we headed off to Telstra Tower to check out the view of Canberra. The sunset was spectacular and the full moon was breath taking.

(The arrow points to a phone just like our first one that we bought about 20 years ago. It was affectionately called, 'The Brick')
I have finally downloaded MDS onto a brand new lap top (courtesy of Tutorial $$, so thank you) and caught up with all the extra downloads. Last night I was busily designing some more cards to cut out on my e-Cutter, so when I get the chance to tinker in my craft room, I will be sharing some of these fun ideas with you.
Until then ...
