Leaving for Australia!!

No, we aren't leaving for Australia but a good friend of Ross's left for a new life in Oz yesterday. Ross has been friends with Will since they were 4 years old and we were friends with his Mum and Dad too although we haven't seen them as much lately, Ross was at the same primary school and high school as Will. They had a leaving party on Saturday night which Ross found quite hard to deal with. I wasn't upset until I saw Ross upset and then he told me he had given his friend one of his prized leather bracelets to remember him by, well that just set me off!!

Anyway, of course there was a card involved! I wanted to make them a little Good Luck card and knew straight away which set I wanted to use!

The stamp set is Summer Splash from the mini catalogue. I got the idea to colour the surfboards in with my markers from my downline and friend Sharon who made a fab scrapbook page at my class a couple of months ago. The "sand" is So Saffron card punched out with the oval punch and then I have inked the edges.

I used my sponge daubers and the Bashful Blue ink pad to make the sky and the sentiment is from Sincere Salutations.

Little bit of old faithful Old Olive ribbon for the finishing touch

Right I need to pack for tonights Tuesday Club, we have a whopping 12 ladies there tonight!!!
