GRAC31 and a serving of amuse-bouche

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and took part in some A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA festivities at a store near you! I have five classes this week so check out my class schedule and sign up for some A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA fun!

First card today is for my weekly challenge. This time I want you to pull out your border punch and have some fun with it! I just picked up this great EK Success border punch and I LOVE it! You may notice I have used it in both cards today… and you’ll see it again this week. I’m slightly obsessed! If possible, please use a little A Muse on your card. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword GRAC31. Thanks to Kerry and Cheiron (2 in 1) for playing along last week!

Now for today’s serving of amuse-bouche….with two new stamps and the new cranberry note cards. I’m sure I have mentioned how much I love red so these cranberry notes are right up my alley. Karl and I often go skating in the winter and I did a lot when I was a kid so I’m quite fond of the skates too. Check out A Muse News and all the other Muses' blogs for more amuse-bouche!

My apologies for the glare on these photos. Took these in a hurry before I left for work this morning!

Here are a few more photos from my trip to Abu Dhabi. This is the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque or “Grand Mosque”. I was only able to walk around outside as I was there in the evening and non-Muslims are only allowed to go in between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. It is absolutely enormous and quite stunning. The colours on the pillars are amazing and they are done using in-lay, not paint. There is some construction going on there as the grounds surrounding the mosque are not complete. If you are ever in Abu Dhabi, I highly recommend it.

Card details will get posted later today.

Happy A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA! Have a great week! Hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge.
