I have decided that rather than just write up 2 or 3 posts in a row about my adventures, that I would come back to my holiday snaps from time to time with different posts over the coming weeks. They provided me with so much inspiration and there are some wonderful visits which I would like to share with you. The coastline of this island is just jaw dropping and we managed to tour the whole island by car.
On our second day we drove to Argostoli, where the huge natural harbour is a known spot to see the rare sea turtles. The fishermen bring their catch in from sea in the mornings and they gut the fish from their boats which attracts the sea turtles as this is easy delicious food for them.
Sure enough we soon spotted signs that the turtles had arrived to look for their rich pickings.
My card today is most definitely sea inspired. It is actually a card I made a little while ago for a commission from my Etsy shop and is based on a design I made last year. The lady wanted it to be personalised for her little daughter, which I was delighted to do.
I coloured Goldie with my Promarkers and highlighted her with Prismacolor pencils.
I made her bubble more 3D by adding some Dimensional magic.
The backing papers are Nitwits and the tag sentiments are Lili
of the Valley.
I used my Marianne shells to add some more sea embellies and a little seahorse charm.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Jelly Park Summer
Simon Says Stamp anything goes
Crafting for all seasons Girlie #55
Card Crafter's Circle Birthdays
Creative Inspirations anything goes
Passion for Promarkers name that tune my tune is Under the Sea from the Little Mermaid
I will be back on Tuesday with my first guest designer card for the Loves Rubberstamping Challenge. The weather this weekend has been glorious and I have been gardening with Billy. We even had lunch and dinner outside which has been long overdue this year. My Hb and I have got Monday off work and I will give you a teeny sneaky clue as to where we are going....The title of my post is going to be , "Pimms and strawberries"......;0)
See you then,
Bye for now,
