September Challenge for Ladies, Ink Part 3

Here is the third and last challenge for my blogging group this month!

This card is very similar to one I found in one of the Stamp It catalogues. I wanted to see if it looked as good IRL as in the catalogue, mainly because with a little tweaking it could become a good base for all my Xmas cards! The stamp used, of course, is by Stamp It. The cardstock is Bazzill and the DP is Kaiser.

My apologies for my absence. I have been taking time out camping with my family. September is such a lovely time to camp....read here....1. In September I do not usually get carried away by sandflies, so I don't mind going....and 2. The oppressive heat hasn't quite settled yet.

Again, we saw some whales breaching and playing in the shallows not 600 metres away from our little tinny. It is quite special to see these glorious animals in the wild. Also saw heaps of huge sea turtles, a few sharks on
the end of our lines and a few good sized grunter ....yum...yum! We only scored the one mud crab......I have a couple of photos of where we went, but I do need to do some stuff around the house before I can sit to edit and upload.
