Rocking and rolling...

Well we are back in the general vicinity of our home, but unfortunately we don't have a berth to go to yet, so we have to stay on anchor which means we have to stay on board and can't go home!  Very unfortunate and at the moment quite unpleasant as we are rocking and rolling around out here.  I have my fingers and toes crossed that the berthing situation will be sorted out tomorrow and we get to sleep in our big comfy spacious bed for the first time in 3 months tomorrow night (instead of our tiny wee triangular shaped crew bunks)!

I have a card to share today that I made a while ago, but hadn't got around to posting yet.  It is one of my favourites at the moment...

This supercute gnome and mushroom house are both digis from Pink Cat Studio.  I love the way they colour up... they always make me smile.  I have coloured them with copics (see details below) and added ribbon from my stash and embroidery thread and a wee charm.  The tag is a sticker from Crate Paper and the sentiment is from two sentiment stamp sets by Pollycraft.  The papers are from October Afternoon.

Here is a close-up:

And these are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Here's wishing you a berth! Quickly. Can only just imagine how you must be crav ing SPACE.

Tell my son that his mother says it's been an AWFULLY long time since I heard his voice (or yours for that matter, but at least we have some contact via this blog :) )... big hugs to you both.
