Yes, It's Feet Up Time

It's another one of those Ma'assalama cards that I have been doing a lot of recently. This one is for a good friend of ours who is leaving Saudi Arabia at the end of the month to retire to Galveston. We are meeting up for a Ma'assalama lunch on Friday at one of our favourite restaurants in Bahrain - Senor Pacos. I have to admit that it serves, possibly the best Margaritas on the island. Billy and I have a wee present to have over on Friday and I decided to do a card to go along with it.

For the card I used a digital stamp image - Jim Relaxing - from Digistamp Boutique and coloured it with my copic pens. Out came my trusty 'Bug' and nestabilities and using the largest die from Big Scalloped Squares I cut and embossed to the image. Matted it onto scraps of blue card that I had lying about, and for the life of me I can't remember where I got it from. The scalloped edges and the edges of the sentiment I distressed with a cotton wool ball and an ink pad from a set that I got in Lakeland Plastics ages ago.

Thanks for popping by.
