I have recently returned from a two week cruise in the Mediterranean on the Cunard cruise ship Queen Victoria. We have been on her a couple of times previously and love the elegance of this lovely ship.
Here we are at a cocktail party given by some fellow guests, on the balcony of their suite. This was on one of the formal evenings on board.
Sadly the internet connection was not always very good and I didn't get to leave any comments on Less is More submissions. If fact we were very busy most of the time with ports of call to be visited most days. It was a wonderful holiday.
Since my return, I have managed to get 56 Wedding invitations made for my DIL's sister. Her fiancé wanted to have a tree on them as it was significant in their courtship... the scene of their first date and the venue for his proposal.
This is what I came up with.
The tree is from Memory Box and the I don't recall the make of the tiny hearts and arrow dies. (I will try to find it)
The font used was Alex Brush.
Here is my card for the challenge at Less is More
this week which has the theme Life's a Beach...more thoughts of summer holidays.
The beach hut die is from Joanna Sheen, cut from a piece of card which I had stamped with a wood plank stamp from Impression Obsession before die-cutting it. I simply added more colour with a water brush to the roof and door and mounted it on dimensional pads within a die cut frame.
The sentiment, in !Paul Maul font, reads 'There's nothing like a little vitamin sea!'.
We have our grandchildren with us from today for a week and then next weekend together with our daughter, we'll be taking them to Spain for a week, which is where I'll be for my 70th birthday!
