Little Umbrella

Hi everyone, shock I have posts two days in a row. :-)  Yes, Helen, finally here is the card that I had fun creating.  The photo above shows all the Copic colours I used to colour this wonderful Mo Manning image - Little Umbrella.  I made this card for a friend who will be turning 50 at the end of November but she has already started celebrating.  A group of us went out to tea with her last Friday night and had a wonderful meal and lots of laughs.  This Friday she heads off on a cruise of Bali area with 3 other ladies for more celebrations.  That is why I have used the image on the front.  The story for the inside of the card.  A couple of years ago this same lady went on a trekking holiday to Milford Sound, New Zealand and part of the money she paid for the holiday was $80 on a walking stick.  We have given her a hard time since that she paid $80 for a stick hence the inside of the card.

I have teamed this image with Stampin Up Design Papers and computer printed sentiments.  Glued some sand under her towel for a bit of texture and blue chalk for the sky.

The inside of the Easel Card.....a stick from the back yard.

Wishing you all a fantastic day.
