This has been a distinctly strange week. My poor hubby hasn't been well and it's thrown the whole week out. To cap it all the poor chap's had his birthday too! This is the card I made for him. I've created another shaped easel card - this time it's an oval in landscape mode. I kept it simple and used ivory stardream card and gold mirri. The image has been created using 3 stampscape stamps and gold detail ep. The design on the floor part of the easel was created using the cloud stamp and gold detail ep again. The gold mirri mats were put through the c/bug tiny mosaics folder. We've been watching the re-runs of Trevor McDonald's Secret Carribean that's being shown on ITV3 here in the UK and saying what a lovely dream it would be to be like Richard Branson and David Copperfield and have our own island and name a bay after ourselves, so I've written inside the card "The picture is of Whitfield Bay, somewhere in the Caribbean" - you never know, maybe one day!
I'm entering my card into two challenges:
Thank you for dropping by today, hopefully things will be back to normal soon.
