I had no actual thought process before I begun this card hence the green background for the sky. So now I have that out of the way I will babble on about the rest of the card... LOL
This card I think will have to be sent to my brother... It say "his name" all over it! He spends the summer months water skiing, kneeboarding or wake boarding and is very much a "mate" type of person... So Mandy or Warren, you haven't seen this! Okay!!!
On the backside of the card I will be putting a message and a photo of my kids (most likely) as I don't usually make Christmas cards for family they get decorations with photos on them instead.
