Now on with the show.........
 It is fitting to show you these two cards made with the gorgeous Jubilee patterned paper. I love this Honey coloured paper with the doily pattern. It was edged with Desert Sand and cut with my Sizzix card die. The flowers are cut with retired Free To Be Me paper and tied up with Natural Hemp and a Colonial White Brad.
For my birthday, I plan on taking a whale watching tour....a 3 hour tour.......
We have 3 Orca pods hanging around the island these days, along with Humpback and Minke whales. There are also porpoises and sea lions among many other amazing wildlife to see. I'm really excited as I have wanted to go on one since moving here almost 23 years ago!

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
