Greetings from the Maldives!!!





My take on this week's SPARKS Challenge at Paper Smooches is a Post Card type of card; "Greetings from all of us!" Could be sent from anywhere sunny and beautiful = not from here )-:
It is rainy, cold and windy - and has been for the past two weeks. I am so tired of it I've been flipping through travel directories every night before I go to sleep. Right now I'd almost do anything to get to go to the Maldives (or some other paradise islands - I'm not extremely picky at the moment...) to swim and get to see the sun!
 
 
For my card I used stamps from Surf and Turf and Swanky Snowdudes.
I'm also entering this card for the Spots challenge at Charisma Cards and the "anything goes" challenges at Wee Memories and Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great day, hugs, Karin
