Rome - a whistle stop tour

Ships Log Wednesday 25 May

Martin and I visited Rome today. Having been before we trained in and did a whistle stop tour of the sights before chilling in a cafe and watching the day go by.  I think we found an ice-cream or two also.....

My card for you today uses the more of those fun papers from Playful Palette and the Confetti Celebration stamp set arriving soon with the new catalogue.  This is such an easy card to make.  Cover your base card with DSP and then add a DSP border to shapes cut for the sentiment.  I stamped the words in Staz On ink and then coloured them in with marker pens and the cute mini star stamp is part of the set so you have everything you need for fun birthday cards.  Change the colours and it's great for the boys too! 
Rome wasn't built in a day and so I guess repairs take a while too!

 The atmosphere in Rome is always fun and exciting. 

The Sistine Chapel is just amazing and every time I see it, it takes my breath away.  So beautiful....

This is the Pope's view from the Vatican museum. Well if he passes through it is...

 Inside the Basilica the size and gold really hit you.  
 The famous Spanish Steps are very pretty with the flowers in bloom.  It would be even better without the tourists!

Finally the awesome Trevi Fountain resplendent since  it's upgrade.  

More soon as internet permits.  Zx
