Retreat

I went on a girls retreat last weekend to Gumnut House in Carmel. I was part of a group of 6 card makers, but there were a few other ladies there doing scrapbooking. It was lovely to get away and just relax and be able to play all day without the normal distractions of everyday life. Zena, the lady who ran it is a Kaszazz consultant, and kindly allowed us to try out all her stamps and inks etc… I fell in love with a few.

This card I copied straight from the Kaszazz catalogue. The dog reminds me so much of our little staffy Bo. It was one in a set of 4 dogs though and the others didn’t appeal to me, so I didn’t order it. The background was created with Distress Oxide inks.

I fell in love with these little turtles from the ‘Coastal’ set and did order them, so you will be seeing more of them in the future I’m sure.
