Merci...........CTS # 6






Holidays over and it's back to work for the 'boss'.  I've just about sorted laundry and am determined to get started on the Christmas cards this week so need to buckle down.  Before I do, I wanted to add my card for this week's CTS #6.



En Francais from SU stamped in Versa Color sand beige for the background of my main panel.
Prim Poppy from Memory Box dies was die cut from the centre of the panel and coloured with Copic markers before returning into position.
The Sentiment is from Waltzingmouse - Paris Nouveau and stamped in tuxedo black ink.
The centre panel is popped up on foam over a strip of plain black card.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We had a very relaxing holiday, after our false start!  Everyone was pleased when the aircraft landed on Lord Howe in brilliant sunshine early Sunday morning.

We packed in a bit of all sorts whilst we were there...........
Walking/trekking up to Kim's lookout from Old Settlement beach, round to Ned's beach to enjoy the most amazing views.......... paid for it a bit the next day......clearly unfit!  Cycled around the island! Can't remember the last time I was on a bike, but I must have been in my teens!!! Fed the fish at Ned's Beach.....hilarious!  Enjoyed the local cuisine eating the best seafood ever!  Can't believe we both added a couple of kilos after all the exercise ....... but there it is, the sign of a good holiday..... I think!

Haven't sorted through all the photos yet but will share a couple soon :)

Now Christmas cards.................
