Use a sentiment....

Creative Craft Cottage has it's fortnightly challenge up and running and our theme is Use a sentiment.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Karleigh Sue

And here is my card


The sentiment stamp I used is from a Tim Holtz  set I got last week with my Simon Says Stamp order.  As you know I like to use dies and embossing on my cards and this one certainly does.  The brick wall embossing folder is by Sizzix and the die from Spellbinders.

As you read this, I am enjoying a holiday break away on Kawau Island... We arrived Friday and are staying till Thursday.  We are staying in a friend's bach (holiday house).  To get to the island you came over by ferry.  Our bach is then 49 steps up the hill from the wharf and  51 steps down to the water... so nestled in the bush.  I've got some photos on my iPhone so once I upload I'll do a post showing you the seclusion. Not a lot to do but read, swim and occasionally catch up with blogs... don't have a whole heap of data on my phone which I'm hotspotting so I can use the computer.

Thanks for visiting.
