Ambers Crafts & Stuff #14 Vacation, All I ever Wanted

The week at Ambers we want to see your Vacation related projects - a card about Travel or your Favourite Vacation or a scrapbook page. I haven't been on vacation for many, many years (difficult when there always seems to be a least one member of the household housebound ...do I hear the sound of violins lol) and as,  quite frankly I still haven't got my scrapbooking into gear yet - I've made a card that reminds me of holidays (vacations) when the kids were little. We used to go in a big family group and there was always one of the males amongst us getting himself buried in the sand. 

I've made this masculine because, as I said, in my experience it's the males of the species who like getting buried up to their necks....personally I think it's because it gets them out of trooping off the buy the ice-creams and soft drinks lol. 

This is from a new set of House Mouse Decoupage I've just had..you'll be seeing it a lot I'm sure. The images are so large and full, just lovely...I felt this one cried out to be an easel card. 

 The easel stand, with matching greeting....as if you need to tell a man to 
take it easy on vacation eh!! ...or is it just the men I know lol. 

Close up of my lovely manly buttons, 
with a little Basic Grey fibre for added interest.

That's the cutest thing ever! I love House Mouse myself, too. It just seems that I "love" too many images, and I never seem to work fast enough to get much done. Beautiful embellishments on card. Hugs, dj
