ROSIE-DEE'S CHALLENGE 49 & a little bit!!!

While still continuing with the theme of HOLIDAYS, the theme last week over on ROSIE-DEE'S CHALLENGE was the SEA. I though about fishing boats to start with, probably because I come from a fishing town (Looe) but I just couldn't get it right so ended up with dolphins. Not necessarily a 'holiday' theme but I have had the honour of swimming with wild dolphins in the sea while on my holiday in Australia. It was an incredible, incredible experience.

The image is by Jayne Netley Mayhew. I stamped the background with my favourite swirly stamp and the mount is cut with a fiskars border punch.

This 'little bit' is the lat in the HOLIDAY series. Next month there is a new basic theme but broken down every week as well. Do pop along tomorrow around 6.30 pm for the new challenge.

Thank you so much for taking time out today to visit. Its the last week of the school holidays & I hope that you have enjoyed them HUGS XXX

Lovely shades of blue on the dolphin card Karen. And what a memory to have swimming with dolphins.

Your dolphins are beautiful Karen. They are so graceful aren't they. Lucky you coming from Looe. One of my favourite places in Cornwall!!
Hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend.

What was it like to swim with dolphins? Was it scarey at all or are they as friendly as they seem to be? Wow, what an experience!

Love your card! The dolphins are a wonderful image! Love the swirly background!
