Playing with new toys!

Hello!

I have had some new toys arrive! The brand new Stampin' Up! Blendabilities alcohol markers were released on 1 July, and my order was in on 1 July! I may need every colour, but I started with yellow and green... for now... I've been watching for months as demonstrators all over the world showed off Blended Bloom coloured with markers, and knew my first order from the new catalogue well in advance, lol!

When I saw that the Pals Paper Arts Challenge colours included Daffodil Delight, I was off and running. I am just learning how to colour with alcohol markers, so don't look too close! ;-)
I used Stampin' Up! Blended Bloom and wPlus9 Hand Lettered Hello stamps. Colours are Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, and Whisper White.
I love the combination of navy and yellow and I love the excuse to use it!

Before I go, I'll share a photo from last night. We celebrated our niece's 21st birthday, and the restaurant was on the Maroochy River where we were treated to the most beautiful sunset. This photo is straight from the camera with no editing.
Thank-you for coming by to visit!
