Colour Swatch and a Night out with Friends

I put together my Coloured Pencil colour swatch.
I stamped the frames last week and coloured them all in today.
I used Gamsol to smooth and shade the pencil lines.
All those pretty colours just make me smile :)

Here is something else that makes me smile…my friends.
We started this tradition last year. We go out for dinner and then a movie to celebrate our birthdays.
It was Lynne's birthday last month and we finally got out to celebrate it :)
I am on the left, Lynne is in the back, Sharon on the right, and Denise is in the front :)

Lynne wanted to go out for Chinese food.
The lovely ladies who served us, noticed the gift bag, so sang Happy Birthday to Lynne (which they called Lamb chop) with a egg roll with a candle stuck in it.

Here is my fortune :)
We purchased a lottery ticket and marked down all of our fortune's lucky numbers on it.
The draw is tomorrow, here is hoping we win big ;)

This is the movie we went to see.
There were some funny parts to it.
I keep threatening that when it is my birthday, I am going to pick a scary movie, lol.
None of my friends like scary movies ;)

So my healthy eating didn't go very well tonight. I only ate until I was comfortable, but Lynne did make me eat a few pieces of liquorice ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful and creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)
