Hi Guys...well I'm back from my travels and I had a great time...it was really thrilling to see the animals in their own habitat..had a lovely rest around the pool and the beach..and the tan came on a treat!!! lol..the only downside was a touch of food poisoning. The hotel where we stayed was really quite nice but the chef..well he had funny ideas about food..I expected it to be different and I am always game to try new things...which might have been my downfall.. but I have to tell you that one night the menu advised that the starter would be 'Avocado Prawn Salad'...YUM!! I thought..one of my favorites....umm..well when it arrived...there was no avocado only a mixture of what seemed to be melon and cucumber and one chopped up prawn!!!! another night the dessert was 'Lime Souffle' well that was very interesting..the colour was bright emerald green and had the consistency of wallpaper paste (not that I have eaten wallpaper paste I hasten to add!!! lol!!!) and as for the taste..well..it tasted of..nothing..no lime..no fruity taste..nothing... But hey it was an experience.. here are a few pics...
Just before I went away I had a couple of DT cards to do but didnt get a chance to post them..the first one is for this months Creatalicious Challenge #3 and the theme this time is to use up your scraps and flowers you have made yourself. I based this card around the lovely purple spotted DP..I only had enough to punch the flowers and then I used a border punch on the petals to give them a 'lacy look'.. I hope it worked!! lol..do go and check out the other DT creations..they are such a clever lot!! lol..
The other DT card is for ABC Challenge F for Flying...I used this cute 'Pink Gem' image that arrived the morning I was due to fly out!! but I managed to make this card before I left for the airport..DB thought I was mad!!! anyway.. I hoped it fitted the bill as it was my first DT entry for ABC.. do go and check out the other DT creations..such great inspiration!!
Well I hope to be back again in a day or two with some more cards..I have itchy fingers and cant wait to get going on some christmas ones...
