I'm back from my vacation to Bermuda! We arrived home last night after a VERY eventful week in Bermuda. Hurricane Bertha hit Bermuda last Monday with mostly rain and wind only. It really was not as bad as they were predicting it to be in the US. I learned how to ride a motor bike (think a Vespa, but black), with only minor injuries from my learning phase (I only ran into 1 curb!). We drove the motor bikes all over the island of Bermuda and really got to see a lot of the beautiful scenery! On Wednesday, I fell walking to dinner and badly hurt my foot. It is very bruised and swollen. I wasn't really able to do much after that because I couldn't walk very well, but luckily is was close to the end of the trip. I am still resting it, but I think it'll be sore for awhile! (That's me in the picture at Gibbs Lighthouse, overlooking the ocean.)
This afternoon I made a card using the MFT Sketch Challenge #40. To celebrate 40 sketches, Kim from MFT is giving away a free August release set to someone who participates in the sketch challenge. I used the stamp set "Hot Stuff" for the sketch. I had these papers still on my desk from my last card I made before vacation, and really wanted to use them again. The paper is by Basic Grey, called Archaic. The main image is paper pieced with some of the designer paper, and a Spica Glitter pen has been added over the top of the coffee steam. The orange ribbon is from a Swavorksi gift that I got a long time ago, which came with the ribbon tied to it. Thanks for looking!
