We've Travelled the world together .....

Hello All,

Sorry I have disappeared off the face of the earth!! I have been on Holiday.

We have also got planning for our extension (yehhhh!!!) - No I am not getting a craft room, I am still relegated to the loft, however we have a small house & I work from home, so now there 3 of us it was a choice of move or extend ... so lots of activity going on, so much to do!!

I have managed to escape to my loft a couple of times, however I have been working on projects I cant share just yet .... but they will be coming soon!!

This card was a commissioned card. My sister wanted me to make it for her Flat mate who is now moving. They have had a ball during there time together, visiting places like, Egypt, India, China ... and much more. So my brief was A map, to use Saturated Canary images ( my sister loves them!!) she always buys cards off me where they have been featured. She wanted them to be coloured to represent her and her flat mate ... and they also have a pet tortoise!!.....eek, wasnt sure quite how to fit all that in!!!

I was asked to do it, just as I was leaving form my Hols, so this is another Serif Card, I put it altogether, printed out and coloured while I was away, so it is another completely flat creation ... quite handy as I had to post it down to my sister!!

This is my entry for:
