Penny Black "Clusters"



Hello stampers!  I hope you all had a great week.  We wrapped up the day at another new restaurant tonight.  It's kinda becoming a hobby of ours.  We never ate out much when we lived in Jacksonville.  WE lived outside of  town a little and it always seemed like such a chore to load back up after getting home from work to head out again.  But now we are empty nesters, and so many restaurants with in 10 minutes of us here in TX.  Last friday night we tried out a new seafood restaurant, Sharkey's on Lake Houston.  We really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony by the lake as the sun was going down, and the food was really good.  Tonight we tried a french bistro, La Madeleine and had some fabulous chicken sandwiches / soup and a spinach quiche.  That's the first time I had tried quiche.  But now are tummies are stuffed and I'm ready for bed!

Tonight I'm sharing 3 quick cards designed by 3 different manufacturer's so they will have separate mini-post.   I'm on a mission to try and use up older stamps I have never used.  And I love this floral image,  "Clusters" by Penny Black!

I hope you have a great weekend!!
hugs, Melisa

Beautiful Melisa - love the way you have used the lace and the ribbon, and the wee flower stick on the ribbon - delightful touch.
Enjoy your culinary 'tourism'.
Blessings
